Pep Boys Auto 500 Picks

After taking a week off so drivers could heal after the beating they took at Bristol, NASCAR goes under the lights Sunday night for the Pep Boys Auto 500 from Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Bet the 2009 Pep Boys Auto 500
Just two races remain in the Race to the Chase before the 12-driver field will be set for NASCAR’s version of a playoff, so make sure to keep a eye on those drivers that are points racing because they may take some risks they normally wouldn't.
Jimmie Johnson 5/1
Jimmie Johnson has looked spectacular the last few weeks but thanks to lots of bad racing luck, he has no wins to show for it. What better track to rebound than Atlanta, which like Charlotte, is a track he has mastered. In his last nine starts at Atlanta, Johnson has only finished outside of the top-10 twice for a average finish of 5.8, which leads all drivers. With Johnson locked into the chase, look for him to let it all out Sunday to pick up a much needed win.

Carl Edwards 8/1
Carl Edwards has been a disappointment so far this year but only because he has yet to win a race even though despite being competitive. Edwards has always run well on this type of track and won the first two times he raced at Atlanta in this series. Will this be the week that he gets his first win of the year?
Live Longshot
Matt Kenseth 25/1
Matt Kenseth has been ice cold ever since he won the first two races of this season, but with a fondness for this type of track and his past history here we think his a nice longshot. His average finish at Atlanta is 9.3, which is second best behind Jimmie Johnson's 5.8.
