Busch In Pole Position On Oddsboard for Coca-Cola 600

After two races in four days, it’s safe to say that NASCAR is back up and running full steam ahead as it works toward its third race in just over a week. The drivers are set to embark on the longest race of the season, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kevin Harvick was the first winner after the two-month hiatus, while Denny Hamlin followed that up with his second win of the year. However, it is Kyle Busch who is favored in this race.

Why Is Kyle Busch The Favorite?

Even though Kyle Busch isn’t having a strong start to the season, Charlotte Motor Speedway could be just the track to get the momentum going for the two-time champion. Nearly half of Busch’s 30 career starts there have been top-five finishes, but only once has he driven to victory lane, which came in 2018 when he won the pole and led 377 of the 400 laps in a dominant win.

In fact, Busch has landed on the podium in three of the last four races at Charlotte Motor Speedway and has led 20 or more laps in each of those runnings. Overall, he has led at least one lap in 22 of his 30 starts there, so you know that barring any mechanical issues, he will be in the mix and is worthy of being the betting favorite.

Betting Pick: Martin Truex Jr. +550, Denny Hamlin +1000

So, I’m hitching my wagon to a couple of Toyotas to grab the checkered flag on Sunday. The manufacturer has won the last three races at Charlotte Motor Speedway and five of the last eight. First, Martin Truex Jr. is the defending champion and has won three of the last six races at this track while landing on the podium in six of the last seven runnings. Additionally, he has led 90 or more laps in five of the last eight races at Charlotte and should be competitive once again.

On the heels of a rain-shortened Darlington victory, Denny Hamlin has also been a strong driver at Charlotte but has yet to find victory lane. Five of Hamlin’s last seven starts at this track have resulted in top-five finishes and going further back, nine of his last 17 have been top-fives. The three-time Daytona 500 winner has two wins already in 2020 and I think this may be the time that he gets his win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
