Quaker State 400 Picks
Which NASCAR drivers do we like to contend for the win in the Quaker State 400? Here are our picks.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch are co-favorites to win this race, as each has been given 11/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr., who each have 13/2 odds. The Quaker State 400 takes place on tonight at 7:45PM ET from Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky.
Kyle Busch has incredible numbers at this track. He has won two of the five races at Kentucky with an average finish of 3.8 at the track. His driver rating here is 129.1, which is best in the field. Look for Busch to make another strong run in this race.
Brad Keselowski has 15/2 odds which is very appealing. Like Busch, Keselowski is a two-time winner at Kentucky. His average finish there is 9.6 while his driver rating at the track is 117.8. That puts him second in today’s field. Look for him to give Busch a run for his money.
Matt Kenseth is the other driver with a win. He comes into tonight’s race with 10/1 odds. We like him to contend again tonight. His average finish of 4.6 at the track is second behind Busch, while his 106.7 driver rating is fourth in this field. Kenseth isn’t having the best 2016, but he should make a push for a win tonight.
