After outracing the pack on Sunday Kyle Busch drove to NASCAR odds victory in the Kobalt Tools 500. While it was great NASCAR betting odds for Busch and Joe Gibbs, racing, it was a monumental win for Toyota, as it was the first NASCAR betting odds ever for the Japanese auto maker.
NASCAR betting odds have, for the most part, not taken too warmly to a Japanese auto maker getting involved in NASCAR odds events. But like it or not, as demonstrated at the Kobalt Tools 500, the Toyota cars now major players in NASCAR betting odds. And like it or not Toyota looks poised to be a major player in NASCAR betting odds for some time to come.
The win was the first NASCAR betting odds victory of the season for Busch and the first NASCAR betting odds win for him with Gibbs Racing. After several controversial years at Hendrick Racing Busch looks ready to finally take the next step in NASCAR betting odds competition and rattle off a string of wins for Gibbs. Toyota and Gibbs Racing have gotten off to a great start in the NASCAR odds column with several Gibbs drivers ranked in the top ten in points and regular NASCAR betting odds favorites to win races.
Sunday was a very impressive NASCAR betting odds event for the team as Busch held off teammate Tony Stewart for the victory and a 1-2 Gibbs finish, a rarity in NASCAR betting odds. Both cars ran solid all day and held of Dale Earnhardt Jr. who dominated early on but couldn’t get the job done. His car seemed unstoppable for the first 62 laps of the NASCAR betting odds event and then seemed to run out of control for the rest of the race. NASCAR odd analysts credit Jr. with great driving to finish as high as he did in the NASCAR betting odds.
The Kobalt 500 was a bit of tough NASCAR betting odds event according to most drivers who commented that it was almost impossible to get right line as the tire situation was out of control. But Gibbs drivers seemed to figure it out better than most and the NASCAR betting odds results showed it. In contrast to Gibbs Racing good fortune it yet another disappointing in NASCAR odds for Hendrick Motor sports which has only one driver (Earnhardt) in the top 12.
