The track has some of the steepest banking on the NASCAR circuit which makes it a favorite race for those gamblers that look at NASCAR betting.NASCAR betting is very interesting on races from Bristol because there is a lot of contact and a lot of cautions.
The Food City 500 is the race held in the spring while the Sharpie 500 is held in the fall. Many NASCAR betting gamblers have found that tickets to Bristol races are among the hardest to get. Last season the race was won by Kyle Busch in the Car of Tomorrow for gamblers looking at NASCAR betting odds. Those cars are now used in all NASCAR races.
The Food City 500 should have excellent NASCAR betting odds with likely favorites Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon. The race should also be interesting for Dale Earnhardt Jr. as he is with the Hendrick team. Junior could be an excellent bet on the NASCAR betting odds board. The last two Sprint Cup races at Bristol saw Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards win for NASCAR betting gamblers.
Logical NASCAR betting favorites in addition to Johnson and Gordon are Matt Kenseth, who has finished in the top 10 many times at Bristol and Kurt Busch who has done well on short tracks in the past. Jeff Gordon is a good choice in NASCAR betting at Bristol although he hasn’t won there since 2002. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been pretty good at Bristol and won in 2004. Tony Stewart is a likely NASCAR betting favorite but hasn’t won at Bristol since 2001. Jimmie Johnson has also had little success at Bristol but will still be one of the NASCAR betting favorites.
Last year’s NASCAR betting had Kyle Busch winning with Jeff Burton just a half length behind. Gordon, Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle completed the top-five for gamblers that were involved in NASCAR betting.
The 2008 Food City 500 is scheduled for Sunday, March 16th. The Nationwide Series will have action on Saturday, March 15th for the Sharpie MINI 300. NASCAR betting odds will be available for both of those races.
