Johnson is a 5/2 favorite to win the race according to oddsmakers at the online sports book Sportsbook.com. Other short odds to win are Mark Martin (7/1), Jeff Gordon (8/1), and Kyle Busch (8/1).
Johnson was taken home the last four NASCAR Sprint Cup championships, winning the 2009 title from Martin by 141 points. Johnson had seven wins last season and 24 top-10’s and only failed to finish one race. Since racing full-time in the Sprint Cup Series in 2002, Johnson has not finished worse than fifth in the season standings.

Martin has raced in the Sprint Cup Series since 1981, but never taken home the season title. Martin finished second for the fifth time in his career last year. Martin won five races and took home seven poles last season to have his best finish in the standings since 2002. Martin has finished in the top 10 in the standings in 17 different seasons.

Gordon is a four-time season champion, but has not won the championship since 2001. Gordon finished third in 2009 and second in 2007. Last season, Gordon had just one win, but was consistently in the top 10, finishing there 25 times. Gordon has finished in the top 10 of the season standings 15 times in 17 full seasons of racing.

Kyle Busch has been a fill-time Sprint Cup driver for five seasons now and finished inside the top 10 just once, in 2007. Busch finished 13th in 2009, the top spot of drivers that didn’t qualify for the Chase for the Championship. Busch has short odds due to his ability to win races. Busch won eight races in 2008 and four in 2009. Since joining Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008, Busch has always been one of the short odd favorites to win each NASCAR race.
The 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts with the 2010 Budweiser Shootout on Saturday, Feb. 6. The first official race of the season is the 2010 Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 14.
