Who Will Win the 2014 Irwin Tools Night Race
Brad Keselowski (6/1) is in great form this season, but I don’t like him at these odds. Keselowski won on this track in 2011 and 2012, but in his L2 races here he has finished in 30th place and 14th place. At 6/1 odds I’d expect much better track form.
The other favorite to win is Kevin Harvick (6/1) and I have no idea why. Harvick is also having a great year, but he has been terrible at Bristol in his career. He last won here in 2005 and in the L6 races on this track his best finish has been 11th place back in 2012.
Jeff Gordon (7/1) won his third race of the year last week, but he has never been that strong at Bristol. His last win on this track was back in 2002. He has two consecutive 7th place finishes here and he has finished inside of the T7 in four of the L6 races here.
A driver with a good rating at Bristol is Matt Kenseth (7/1). Kenseth won this race last year and finished in 13th place in the race here earlier in the year. Kenseth has finished in the T10 in seven of the L10 races at Bristol, which includes four T5 finishes.
Kasey Kahne (12/1) is an interesting value play based on his track form. Kahne has finished in the T10 in the L4 races on this track including a win here last year. Kahne finished in 2nd place in this race last year and 8th place earlier this year.
If you want a long shot or a driver to finish in the T5 I really like Brian Vickers (50/1). Vickers has finished in the T10 in the L5 races at Bristol with three of those finishes being in the T5. I don’t think he’ll win, but his odds to finish in the T5 will have great value.
Other than the drivers already mentioned, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards have won here recently. The problem with these drivers is that their track form isn’t that strong apart from the win. Both have great odds, but I don’t expect either to win the race.
I’m betting on Kahne, as he needs a win still. Kahne is 12th in the Sprint Cup standings without a win, so he should come into this race hungry to qualify for the Chase. With his track form and 12/1 odds I think he is the best bet on the board this weekend.
· My Picks: Kasey Kahne +1200
