Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, and Denny Hamlin. Those are some of the drivers whom people expect to perform great this coming weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, but nothing is a sure lock in the NASCAR Cup Series. With that said, we present three drivers with longer odds who could win the 2020 The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Bet accordingly and you may walk away with a big enough payday to buy your own track-worthy ride (on Craigslist, that is).
Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the NASCAR Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Cup Series Race on March 15, 2020
Where: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Hampton
When: Sunday, March 15, 2020, green flag at 2:00 PM ET
Ricky Stenhouse (30/1 Vegas Odds)
Looking at Stenhouse’s past starts at the Atlanta Motor Speedway is not going to blow anyone’s mind. He’s only finished inside the top 10 just once, and that was when he placed 10th at The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 back in 2016. Since then, Stenhouse has gone 13th, 16th, and 18th at the track in three races. Stenhouse is on a fairly decent start to the season, even finishing third at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway last February. Stenhouse has an 18.43 career average of finish at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Daniel Suarez (50/1 Vegas Odds)
Suarez does not have a wide range of experience racing at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver has only raced three times there so far in his career, but each he seems to be getting better and better each time he makes a start in Hampton. In his first race there, Suarez finished only 21st in 2017. In 2018, he raced there again and finished 15th at The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Suarez made another leap last year, when he finished 10th at the 2019 The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.
Clint Bowyer (70/1 Vegas Odds)
Watch out for Bowyer. You don’t want to sleep too hard on him for the upcoming race in Hampton. Although Bowyer has not won a race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in 19 starts there, he’s flirting with success at the track over the past few years. Bowyer has had a top-11 finish or better in each of his last three starts at the said racetrack, including a third place in 2018 and a fifth-place last year.
