If you like drivers crowding each other and banging their cars together then you will be all set to bet on NASCAR on Sunday with the Food City 500.
NASCAR betting presents a lot of choices this weekend at Bristol but the main Sprint Cup race is on Sunday. Many of the drivers really get excited to race at Bristol because it such a short track. “The straightaways are so short, you don’t have time to do anything,” said Joey Logano, “You come off of one corner and you’re already looking toward your entry into the next corner. It gives you no chance to relax or rest. The first time I went to Bristol, I came in after a five-lap run and I was out-of-breath. I forgot to breathe!” Logono was not very good last year at Bristol as he finished outside of the Top 30 in both starts.
The Food City 500 is the fifth race of the 2010 NASCAR betting season. Last year at Bristol the NASCAR betting winner was Kyle Busch. In fact, he won both races at Bristol. He led this race for 378 laps and held off Denny Hamlin in a green-white-checker finish. Kyle Busch is one of the favorites for those that bet on NASCAR as he has finished either first or second in five of his last seven starts at the track. Hamlin is also a popular choice in NASCAR betting since he has four straight finishes of sixth or better at Bristol.
Jimmie Johnson is always popular but you might want to show some caution as you bet on NASCAR this week. He has no wins in 16 starts at Bristol. He was better last year though as he finished third and eighth in two starts. Mark Martin is another contender to win. He was sixth and second in the two Bristol races a year ago.
Carl Edwards is in trouble with NASCAR over his incidents with Brad Keselowski but Bristol could be where he turns it around. He has won twice at Bristol in the past. He was not good last year though with 15th and 16th place finishes.
A longshot to consider as you bet on NASCAR might be Ryan Newman who has finished sixth, seventh and sixth in his last three starts at Bristol.
