The STP 400 was added to the 2011 NASCAR schedule and will be the first of two races held at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas this year. Kansas received a second date as part of NASCAR’s latest round of schedule realignment and this year’s STP 400 will be the inaugural race.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog have made Edwards the money line favorite at +450.

The driver with the next best odds is Jimmie Johnson, who is +700 to win this weekend. He currently sits behind Edwards and Harvick in the standings with 408 points and in 12 starts this season, he has one win, four top 5finishes and seven top-10s.

Also receiving attention this week from oddsmakers is Kyle Busch, who is +800 on the money line.
