Chase Elliott out with broken leg

Hendrick Motorsports' Chase Elliott — the 2020 series champion — will not be in the car in Las Vegas after he fractured his left tibia snowboarding in Colorado during the week. Elliott underwent successful surgery Friday and was released from the hospital Saturday. The team announced there is no timetable for his return, only noting it will take "several weeks" for him to get back into the car. Xfinity series competitor Josh Berry, who won the fall race at Las Vegas in 2022 will substitute for Eilliott this weekend.

Top drivers and best bets for the Pennzoil 400

The field features eight previous winners including four multiple-time winners (Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr.). Parity reigns at Las Vegas where no one has won consecutive races since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 and each of the last three races were won by the three engine manufacturers. Las Vegas native – and last week’s winner at Auto Club SpeedwayKyle Busch is the favorite over at BetMGM with 6.5-to-1 odds.

Best odds to win

  • Kyle Busch +650

  • Kyle Larson +800

  • Ross Chastain +900

  • Joey Logano +900

  • Ryan Blaney +1100

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg suggests finding good mid-tier value in Truex Jr. (+1200) and Tyler Reddick (+2000) and also notes Brad Keselowski (+4100) has good longshot value as he has won three times in the desert.
