Which driver among Kyle Busch, Truex Jr., Logano, Larson, and Harvick has the best chance of winning the 2019 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race?
Kyle Busch won this race back in 2017. Last year, Kyle fell to twentieth. No matter. He looked great at Michigan International Speedway last week when finishing sixth. The reason to like Busch to win on Saturday night is because he hasn’t taken a checkered flag since winning at Pocono on June 2. Busch is worth considering. But among the favorites, he’s not the driver to put money behind.
The driver to back among the favorites in Kyle Larson. Larson had a great 2018 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. He won the pole. On race day, he finished second behind Kyle’s brother, Kurt. Larson raced very well at Michigan last Sunday. He finished third behind Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin. He’s also been hot with 4 Top 10 finishes in the last 5 NASCAR Monster Energy events.
Is there a driver between +1200 and +2000 odds that can win the 2019 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race?
Both Denny Hamlin at +1200 and Kurt Busch at +2000 can win on Saturday. Hamlin has driven exceptionally well. He finished second at Michigan, third at Watkins Glen, won at Pocono, second at New Hampshire, and fifth at Kentucky. He and his crew are clicking right now.
Kurt Busch won the 2018 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. The older Busch brother has only a single Top 10 finish in the last 5 races. He did win at Kentucky on July 13, though. Can you think of a better race for Kurt Busch to get back on the winning track than the Bass Pro Shops NRA?
Both Hamlin and Busch offer decent odds comparable to their true chances of winning. Either would be a good driver to back.
What longshot driver with odds of at least +3300 can take the checkered flag on August 17?
Alex Bowman hasn’t dominated. He hasn’t even really challenged in recent races, but if you’re looking to put money behind a driver at +3300 odds or higher to win on Saturday night, he’s the play.
Bowman finished eighth at the 2018 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. At Michigan last week, he finished tenth. Bowman doesn’t get a ringing endorsement, but he has driven well enough that he’s worth a shot if you wish to back a high-priced dog.
