For the second successive weekend, the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be racing at Charlotte Motor Speedwday (6:00 p.m. ET, FOX). However, this time instead of an shootout ‘ are in for a 600 miles from the Cup Series’ race of this year.
Charlotte is a 1.5-mile oval having a comparatively old surface that was repaved back in 2006. We saw from the All-Star race which tires failed to make a difference and track position was also extremely important, therefore this race ought to offer a great blend of multiple 1.5-mile tracks.
The latest 1.5-mile points-paying race was also a night race in Kansas Speedwday. In that race, the top five in typical green-flag speed all showed up at the top nine in 15-lap speed in Happy Hour, despite the race being at nighttime and final practice during the day.
We’ve got a similar situation at Charlotte this weekend, so I will certainly rely on long-run speed along with 1.5-mile performance this season and beyond Charlotte oval performance when handicapping the race.
Armed with all these data points, let us get right to my four favorite bets to win tonight’s race, plus bonus top-five and top-10 props.
A fast primer on the chances below: A $100 wager at +375 odds would gain $375, while a $200 wager at -200 chances would cover $100.
Kevin Harvick +600 to Acquire Kyle Busch is your as a result of three wins to Harvick’s zero wins and his exceptional speed in Happy Hour this year. It might be argued that Harvick should be a co-favorite despite finishing 13th on the 10-lap board in practice.
That is because in opening training, he had been much better relative to the remainder of the area over 10 consecutive laps. His time throughout the temperatures that are cooler is encouraging. In fact, Harvick’s Crew Chief Rodney Childers said the cars are really sensitive to track changes, and that they were really great in opening clinic throughout the warmer temperatures.
