Last week, NASCAR hosted its largest event of this year in the Daytona 500, and it was about as unpredictable as one can expect.Denny Hamlin, a man called a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the triumph as a massive crash pumped out a massive portion of the area down the stretch.
As intermediate racing starts this week at Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be kings on the track.
Kevin Harvick is your 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 also includes five top 10s in his last 10 races and two wins at AMS, kyle Busch and Joey Logano equally have 6/1 odds. Logano has no wins, but four finishes.
And while Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski can get lost in the shuffle, they’re more than powerful in Georgia.
Who wins? It might 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 last season. Larson has another place finish in five career races at AMS and three top-10 finishes.
