View Current NASCAR Odds

Menard has been racing in the Sprint Cup Series since 2003 and finally got his first win in 167 starts by holding off Jeff Gordon on the final laps and having just enough fuel to win.

According to oddsmakers at online sports book Bodog, Menard had 75/1 odds to win the race coming into the week, meaning a $100 wager on Menard to win will pay out an additional $7,500.

This race saw a lot of surprise performances, including Regan Smith, who came in third place. Points leader Carl Edwards finished in 14th place and stayed ahead of Jimmie Johnson, who finished 19th.
