It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, such as nailing wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a leading competition from the beginning. Anybody who has followed its picks is way, way up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic places like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his blood. Now his model simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we could tell you that the version is high on Chase Elliott, who makes a strong run in the checkered flag despite heading 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 linking the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He’s finished within the top 10 in each of these races and even earned a top-five end in 2017.
Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five endings at Atlanta at the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott is a Georgia native and his dad, Bill Elliott, won at NASCAR’s highest level at Atlanta Motor Speedway five occasions in his career, so it’s something of a home track for its 23-year-old. The version anticipates him to ride that edge to the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
Another shocker from the model: Kyle Busch, one of the top Vegas favorites at 6-1, does not crack the top five.
The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up began on the pole in this race a year before, but wound up finishing in seventh place. The year before, he had yet another quick ride and started the race in third, but wound up in 16th.
Considering his win at Atlanta at 2013, Busch has only run 56.7 percent of his laps within 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 values within this affluent 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you will need to cover him.
The model can be targeting three other drivers using 2019 NASCAR at Atlanta odds of 10-1 or even more time to make a serious run at winning everything. Anyone who backs these shots can hit it big.
