Bowman out 3-4 weeks

Hendrick Motorsports’ Alex Bowman suffered a compression fracture in his back during a sprint car race Tuesday, which will cause him to miss at least three weeks. Josh Berry will drive the No. 48 Chevrolet in Bowman’s place beginning this weekend. Berry filled in for Chase Elliott for five races earlier this season as Elliott recovered from a broken leg suffered in a snowboarding accident between the Phoenix and Las Vegas race weekends.

Top drivers and best bets for the Würth 400

The record plays on this weekend with Hendrick teams entering as prevailing favorites according to BetMGM. The three regular drivers – minus the aforementioned Bowman – enter the weekend as the top three favorites.

Best odds to win

• Kyle Larson +600
• William Byron +700
• Chase Elliott +700
• Denny Hamlin +900
• Martin Truex Jr. +900
• Christopher Bell +1000

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg suggests good midtier value in Richard Childress Racing’s Kyle Busch (+1600) and 23XI’s Tyler Reddick (+2000) and recommends staying away from Reddick’s teammate Bubba Wallace (+3300).

Weather for the Würth 400

The forecast calls for cool, cloudy conditions with a near-50% chance of rain Saturday and Sunday. Grip could be an issue, not only because rubber support series earlier in the weekend will be washed away but also because temperatures in the low 60s mean tires will take longer to reach their optimum operating window, leading to very shaky cars early in runs.
