Last week, NASCAR hosted its biggest event of the year in the Daytona 500, and it had been about as unpredictable as one can expect.Denny Hamlin, a guy called a king of the restrictor-plate races, took home the win as a massive crash knocked out a huge portion of the area down the stretch.
As racing starts this week in Atlanta Motor Speedway, there will be several kings on the track.
Kevin Harvick is the favored that is understandable at 4/1 chances with eight top-10 finishes in his last 10 races and two career wins on the track there. Kyle Busch and Joey Logano both have 6/1 odds, while Busch includes two wins at AMS and five top 10s in his last 10 races. 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 would be the place for him to find Victory Lane. Larson includes three top-10 finishes and another place finish in five career races at AMS.
