It made some enormous calls in NASCAR last year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it is off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top competition from the beginning. Anyone who has followed its picks is way, way up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic places like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His version simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta, we can inform you that the model is high on Chase Elliott, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite going off at 10-1 odds. Elliott does not have a lengthy history at Atlanta, but he’s had success there at all three of his starts at the track since joining the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He has finished within the top 10 in each of these races and even got a top-five end in 2017.
Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five finishes at Atlanta in 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 is something of a house monitor for the 23-year-old. The model anticipates him to ride that advantage towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
Another shocker in the model: Kyle Busch, among the best Vegas favorites at 6-1, does not crack the top five.
The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up started on the rod in this race a season ago, but ended up finishing in seventh position. The year prior, he had another fast ride and began the race in third, but ended up in 16th.
Since his win at Atlanta in 2013, Busch has only conducted 56.7 percent of his laps within the top 15. For his career, he has finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better worth within this loaded 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you’ll need to cover him.
The version is also targeting three other drivers with 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta odds of 10-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big.
