It made some huge calls in NASCAR this past year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. in Sonoma. And it is off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top contender from the beginning. Anybody who has followed its selections is way, way up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic places like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His model mimicked the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we could tell you the version is top on Chase Elliott, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite heading off at 10-1 odds. Elliott does not have a long history at Atlanta, but he’s had success there in all three of his starts at the track since joining the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He has finished inside the top 10 in every one of those races and even got a top-five finish in 2017.
Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five finishes at Atlanta at the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott is a Georgia native and his father, Bill Elliott, won at NASCAR’s highest level in Atlanta Motor Speedway five occasions in his career, so it’s something of a house track for the 23-year-old. The model expects him to ride that edge towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
Another shocker from the version: Kyle Busch, among the top Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t even crack the top five.
The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up began on the rod in this race a year before, but wound up finishing in seventh place. The year prior, he had yet another fast ride and began the race , but wound up in 16th.
Considering his win at Atlanta at 2013, Busch has just conducted 56.7 percent of his laps inside the top 15. For his career, he’s finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better worth in this affluent 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you’ll want to cover him.
The version can be targeting three other drivers with 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta odds of 10-1 or even more time to make a serious run at winning everything. Anyone who backs these lengthy shots could hit it big.
