It’s another big weekend for NASCAR betting fans, as the Crown Royal Jeff Kyle 400 is set to run on Sunday afternoon at the famed Brickyard track. Things are pretty tight at the top of the Sprint Cup standings, with Kevin Harvick leading the way. He will be looking to pad his lead at the top this weekend, but he will be up against some stiff competition. This is a track that series winners love, with 17 of the 21 races there won by champions. Let’s take a look at who might be among the favorites on Sunday.
Taking a Look into the Crown Royal Jeff Kyle 400 NASCAR Betting Preview

Consider This Before Placing Your Nascar Bets
This is a track that Jeff Gordon absolutely loves, as he has won there 5 times already. Not only that, he has placed in the top 10 on no less than 17 of the 21 times that he has raced at the Brickyard. Gordon is scheduled to retire from racing at the end of this season, so you can bet that he would love to get another win at the track that has been so very good to him over the years. Gordon ranks either first or second in all the major stats at this track, so he looks to be very good value for money, and a solid pick to post back to back wins in this event.
There may be no driver hotter than Kyle Busch right now, as he will head to Indianapolis having won 3 of his last 4 races. As good as he has been, he is still only ranked #33 in the Sprint Cup standings right now, so he will be looking to get a little closer to the pack with another solid performance here. Busch also has a good track record at the Brickyard, posting a pair of second place finishes in his last 3 starts there.
Jimmie Johnson is right behind Gordon in career wins at Indy with 4. Johnson is coming into this one with a 108.1 driver rating over the past 10 races, which is the best of all drivers. He will definitely be on to watch this weekend. Kasey Kahne may never have won at Indianapolis, but he always does consistently well there, posting 7 top 15 finishes in 11 races. He may not be the best choice to win this one, but you can expect him to be in the hunt.
Some guys just prefer certain tracks over others, and you can’t argue that this might well be Jeff Gordon’s favorite place to race. His success there combined with the fact that he is in his last year makes him the man to beat this weekend.
