Last week, NASCAR hosted its largest event of the year at the Daytona 500, and it had been about as unpredictable as you can expect.Denny Hamlin, a guy called a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the triumph as a massive crash pumped out a huge portion of the area down the stretch.
As intermediate racing begins, this week in Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be several kings on the monitor.
Kevin Harvick is the clear favored at 4/1 odds with eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races and two career wins on the trail there. While Busch also has two wins at AMS and five top 10s in his last 10 races, kyle Busch and Joey Logano equally have 6/1 odds. Logano has no wins, but four top-10 finishes.
And while Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski can get lost in the shuffle, they’re more than powerful in Georgia.
This week so who wins? It may be foolish to pick against Harvick, but Kyle Larson is due for a win. The 26-year-old went with a win last season, but Atlanta could be the place for him to find Victory Lane. Larson includes another place finish in five career races at AMS and three top-10 finishes.
