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 man known as a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the win as a massive crash pumped out a huge portion of the area down the stretch.
This week at Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be several sins on the track as racing starts.
Kevin Harvick is the understandable favored at 4/1 chances with eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races and just two career wins on the trail there. While Busch also has five top 10s in his last 10 races and two wins at AMS, kyle Busch and Joey Logano equally 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’re more than powerful in Georgia.
This week, Who wins? It might be foolish to choose against Harvick, but Kyle Larson is due for a win. Atlanta would be the place for him to find Victory Lane, although the 26-year-old went with a win last season. Larson has three top-10 finishes and another place finish in five career races at AMS.
