Originally scheduled on May 16, 2020, the 2020 NASCAR All-Star Race is finally going to push through this Wednesday at Bristol Motor Speedway. Drivers who’ve won a points race in 2019 or 2020 are all eligible to race in this event along with past All-Star winners and NASCAR Cup Series champions. Who are the favorites, sleepers, and a long shot in this race? Let’s get to know some of them below.
Betting Preview for the NASCAR All-Star Race on July 15, 2020
Where: Bristol Motor Speedway
When: Wednesday, July 15, 2020, green flag at 8:30 PM ET
Kevin Harvick (+450)
Even when he’s not winning, Harvick looks excellent. Such was the case last Sunday, when he finished fourth at the Kentucky Speedway. It was his fourth race in a row in which he finished no worse than fourth. Before the Quaker State 400, Harvick won the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, his fourth win of the season — tied at No. 1 with Denny Hamlin. In his career, Harvick has won twice and placed inside the top five 12 times in 39 career races at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Deny Hamlin (+550)
As mentioned earlier, Hamlin shares the top spot in the standings for most wins thus far this season with four. He had a nice stretch recently in which he had a pair of wins and four top 5s over a four-race span before a 28th place at the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400. He bounced back from that performance with a 12th-place showing at the Quaker State 400, though. Hamlin has two wins at Bristol Motor Speedway, the last one was at last year’s Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race.
Brad Keselowski (+800)
Keselowski settled for ninth place at last Sunday’s race at Kentucky Speedway for his fourth-straight top 11 finish. Keselowski hasn’t won a race since May 31, but that was at the same course where Wednesday’s All-Star race will be held. He won the 2020 Supermarket 500, his third career win at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Alex Bowmanm (+2000)
Thanks to his win at Camping World 400 at Chicagoland Speedway last year, Bowman has managed to secure a ticket to the All-Star race. But he’s also won a race this year, topping the field at the Auto Club 400 back in March at Auto Club Speedway. Bowman has not won in nine races at Bristol Motor Speedway, but he’s got four top 20s there.
Erik Jones (+2000)
Jones has yet to win this year, but he’s got one last year, so thanks to that, he’s headed to Wednesday’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway, where he has three top 5s in seven races.
Cole Custer (+6600)
Custer made a buzzer-beating shot at a ticket to Bristol Motor Speedway after winning last Sunday’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Custer now has a pair of top 5s in his last two races.
Kevin Harvick wins the 2020 NASCAR All-Star race.
