It made some huge calls in NASCAR last year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a leading competition from the beginning. Anyone who has followed its selections is way, way up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic venues like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His model mimicked the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For the 2019 QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta, we can tell you that the version is top on Chase Elliott, making a strong run in the checkered flag despite heading off at 10-1 odds. Elliott doesn’t have a lengthy history at Atlanta, but he’s had success there in all three of his starts at the track since linking the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He’s finished within the top 10 in each of those races and even got a top-five finish in 2017.
Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five endings at Atlanta in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott is a Georgia native and his dad, Bill Elliott, won at NASCAR’s highest level at Atlanta Motor Speedway five occasions in his career, so it is something of a home track for its 23-year-old. The version expects him to ride that advantage towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
Another shocker in the version: Kyle Busch, one of the best Vegas favorites at 6-1, does not even crack the top five.
The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up started on the pole in this race a season before, but wound up finishing in seventh position. The year before, he had another fast ride in qualifying and started the race , but ended up in 16th.
Considering his win at Atlanta in 2013, Busch has only run 56.7 percent of his laps within the top 15. For his career, he’s finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better values in this loaded 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you will want to cover him.
The version can be targeting three other motorists using 2019 NASCAR at Atlanta odds of 10-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anyone who backs these shots can hit it big.
