Last week, NASCAR hosted its largest event of the year at the Daytona 500, and it had been about as unpredictable as one can expect.Denny Hamlin, a guy known as a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the triumph as a enormous crash knocked out a huge portion of the area down the stretch.
As racing starts this week in Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be sins on the track.
Kevin Harvick is the favorite at 4/1 odds with just two career wins on the track and eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races there. While Busch also includes five top 10s in his last 10 races and two wins at AMS Joey Logano and kyle Busch both have 6/1 chances. Logano has no wins, but four top-10 finishes.
And while Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski can get lost in the shuffle, they are more than formidable in Georgia.
So who wins this week? It might be foolish to pick against Harvick, but Kyle Larson is due for a win. The 26-year-old went without a triumph last year, but Atlanta could be the spot for him to find Victory Lane. Larson includes three top-10 finishes and a second place finish in five career races at AMS.
The QuikTrip 500 can be viewed Sunday at two p.m. ET on FOX.
