QuikTrip 500: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for 2019 race
Last week, NASCAR hosted its largest event of the year in the Daytona 500, and it was about as unpredictable as you could expect.Denny Hamlin, a man known as a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the win as a huge crash pumped out a huge section of the area down the stretch.
As intermediate racing begins this week in Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be many sins on the track.
Kevin Harvick is your understandable favored at 4/1 chances with eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races and two career wins on the trail there. While Busch has five top 10s in his last 10 races and two wins at AMS, kyle Busch and Joey Logano both have 6/1 chances. Logano has no wins, but four top-10 finishes.
And while Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski may get lost in the shuffle, they are more than formidable in Georgia.
Who wins? It may be foolish to choose against Harvick, but Kyle Larson is due for a win. Atlanta could be the spot for him, although the 26-year-old went with a win season. Larson includes another place finish in five career races at AMS and three top-10 finishes.
