View Current NASCAR Odds

The race featured plenty of wrecks and trouble, but Earnhardt Jr. found a way to lead at the end. He finished with 79 laps led, as he came away with a win despite being out of the Chase. A win last week at Talladega would have allowed him to still be contending for the Chase at this point.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Earnhardt Jr. had 15/1 odds to win this race coming into the week, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $1,500.

Jeff Gordon finished second on the day and led the most laps, which will help his efforts to reach the final Chase race. He now leads the point standings by 3 over Ryan Newman, who was third on Sunday. Gordon is 7 points ahead of the fifth-place driver, Denny Hamlin.
