Last week, NASCAR hosted its biggest event of the year in the Daytona 500, and it was about as unpredictable as one can expect.Denny Hamlin, a guy known as a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the win as a huge crash knocked out a massive portion of the area down the stretch.
This week at Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be many kings on the track as racing starts.
Kevin Harvick is the favorite that is understandable at 4/1 chances with just two career wins on the trail and eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races there. While Busch includes 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 four finishes, although no wins.
And while Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski can get lost in the shuffle, they’re more than formidable in Georgia.
This week 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 year, but Atlanta would be the spot for him. Larson has a second place finish in five career races at AMS and three top-10 finishes.
