Odds to Win the NASCAR Food City 250 – Favorite is Kyle Busch
The Nationwide Series travels to Bristol Motor Speedway this Friday night to kick off a weekend of night racing in Bristol, Tennessee. The Cup Series will be racing on the track on Saturday night. The oddsmakers have Brad Keselowski as the favorite at +200 according to America's Bookie.
Keselowski is the hot ticket in NASCAR right now on both the Cup Series and in Nationwide. In 13 races in 2012 he has 3 Nationwide wins. He won this event back in 2008 and I could definitely see him as a threat to win this Friday. He also has short odds to win the Irwin Tools Night Race on Saturday night. I like his chances in both.
Kyle Busch has been given +250 odds and is also favored to win Saturday’s race. He has won this event the last 2 years so just that alone would lead me not to pick him. Busch has no wins on the season for Nationwide races and has not shown a lot racing with the big boys either. I’m scratching him totally for this one. He might be good for a top 5.
Kevin Harvick is at +450 for the race and won it a couple of times over a decade ago. He has no wins on Nationwide in 2012. I am going to take a closer look at a few of the guys that race Nationwide each week and are at the top. Elliott Sadler at +850 might be worth a look. Also check out Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon. All 3 of these guys are in the top 5 of the Nationwide point standings.
Odds to win the Food City 250:
Brad Keselowski +200
Kyle Busch +250
Kevin Harvick +450
Joey Logano +700
Elliott Sadler +850
Kasey Kahne +850
