It made some huge calls in NASCAR last year, such as nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top contender from the beginning. Anybody who has followed its picks is way, way up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic places like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His version simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we can tell you the version is high on Chase Elliott, making a strong run in the checkered flag despite going off at 10-1 odds. Elliott does not have a long history at Atlanta, but he has had success there in all three of his starts at the track since joining the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He has finished within the top 10 in each of those races and even got a top-five end in 2017.
Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five finishes at Atlanta in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott is a Georgia native and his dad, Bill Elliott, won at NASCAR’s highest level in Atlanta Motor Speedway five occasions in his career, so it is something of a house monitor for its 23-year-old. The model anticipates him to ride that advantage towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
Another shocker in the version: Kyle Busch, among the best Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t crack the top five.
The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up began on the pole in this race a year ago, but wound up finishing in seventh place. The year before, he had yet another fast ride and began the race , but ended up in 16th.
Considering his win at Atlanta at 2013, Busch has only conducted 56.7 percent of his laps inside the top 15. For his career, he has finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better worth within this affluent 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you’ll want to cover him.
The version is also targeting three other drivers using 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta chances of 10-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning everything. Anyone who backs these shots could hit it big.
