Some of the top names in racing from past generations will be joined by one of the sport's biggest stars when the Superstar Racing Experience heads to Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Saturday. Reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Chase Elliott is set to make his debut, and it will be a family affair for the 25-year-old. His father, Bill Elliott, has been a regular in the SRX Series this season, and now they'll get a chance to go head-to-head.
Series co-founder Tony Stewart has dominated the inaugural SRX Series season. He leads the SRX standings by 38 points as it reaches its conclusion in Nashville this week. Stewart is the 3-2 favorite in the 2021 SRX at Nashville odds. Chase Elliott is close behind at 2-1, while the elder Elliott is a 9-1 long shot in the SRX Nashville lineup. The green flag on the main race drops at 8 p.m. ET and you can watch it on CBS. It can be streamed on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Top SRX at Nashville picks
Before you tune in to Saturday's race, you need to see the picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. SportsLine's proprietary racing model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.
The model was all over Stewart (3-2) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the SRX Series at Eldora race. The model also called Stewart winning at Knoxville, and now it has dialed in on Saturday's SRX at Nashville Fairgrounds race and released its projections.
For Saturday's race, the model predicts that Chase Elliott will finish in third place. Elliott has been a prodigiously-talented driver since his early teens. He worked his way up through various circuits, including the ARCA Racing Series, Truck Series and Xfinity Series. He made his Cup Series debut in 2015 and is now at the top of the sport, winning the championship in 2020.
Despite that raw talent, the specially-modified SRX cars will be an adjustment for him. Drivers like Stewart, Ernie Francis Jr. and Marco Andretti are now five weeks in and should have a major edge when it comes to feel for the cars. The model sees Chase Elliott contending, but ultimately he'll fall short in this field of legendary drivers.
Instead, the model is calling for Stewart to pick up his third win of the season. The series co-founder has 199 points on the season, 38 points clear of Francis in second place and 44 points ahead of Andretti in third. Stewart has been in contention each week, and with the title on the line, there's no reason to expect him to perform poorly at Nashville.
