Throw something new into the NASCAR circuit, and there’s always the possibility for chaos. 

That’s what could be on tap this weekend when the Cup Series heads to Austin for Sunday’s EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas Road Course, a 3.4-mile track that is a different test from the short tracks in Dover and Darlington the past few weeks.


Because this race is so new, there’s no history to go upon: no past finishes to evaluate, no caution trends to follow, no drivers who know every inch of the track. That means there's an opportunity for a wide array of drivers – and for you, with FOX’s Super 6 Stage 2 contest.

All you have to do is download the free FOX Super 6 app, correctly answer six questions about Sunday's race and tune in for your chance to win $10,000 of Clint Bowyer's money. And yes, it's absolutely free. Just download the app and make your picks now!

Here are the six questions for Sunday's Stage 2 and some quick thoughts on each to help you take the checkered flag.

Which driver will have the best finishing position at the end of Stage 2?
The options: Christopher Bell, Chase Elliott, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin

Elliott is the betting favorite this week, and he has been great at road courses, with five wins. The one road course that was in play this year was at Daytona, and Bell ended up winning it.

Hamlin did lead after Stage 2 at Daytona in Week 2, so he should be considered in the mix. Truex also has a few road course wins if you're looking to go against the popular pick.

How many cautions will there be by the end of Stage 2?
The options: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7-plus

This is an example of how having no history from past races to look at could make for a difficult challenge. 

The possibility for cautions could be reduced with the field stretched out on such a long, winding track. However, there could also be more mechanical issues with pits stretched out as well. It might make sense to hew to the middle options here.

Who will have the most laps led by the end of Stage 2?
The options: Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano, AJ Allmendinger, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch or none/tie

Again, this is a difficult call with a new track. But the hunch here is that Elliott – who has a good track record and has raced really well at times this season – will be the safest play of the bunch. 

Logano, who is seventh in odds to win the race, might also be someone to keep an eye on, while Blaney is fourth-most likely to win, according to FOX Bet.

Which of these driver will have the fastest lap by the end of Stage 2?
The options: Ryan Blaney, AJ Allmendinger, Denny Hamlin, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr.

Week after week, it seems like Hamlin’s car has been the most consistent and the one that has the best chance to win, even though he hasn’t broken through yet. That’s why he’s atop the points standings and has the most stage wins (five) to this point. 

Which manufacturer will have the most cars in the top-5 of Stage 2?
The options: Toyota, Chevy, Ford or tie

At Daytona’s Road Race in February, two Toyotas and two Fords ended up in the top five together. 

The Elliott dynamic gives Chevy a chance to break into that mix one week after Chevy and Hendrick took the top four spots at Dover, but a tie might be the best option.

Which team will have the most drivers in the top-5 of Stage 2?
The options: Hendrick Motorsports, Team Penske, Joe Gibbs Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing, Richard Childress Racing or tie

History was made last weekend, when Hendrick went 1-2-3-4, marking only the third time the top four spots went to one racing team. 

Maybe Hendrick gets some momentum out of the run – and it's worth noting that Elliott, the favorite, drives for Hendrick, of course.
