Samsung 500 NASCAR Betting

NASCAR betting on the Samsung 500 from the Texas Motor Speedway should be exciting with a lot of great action.

A different driver has won at Texas every year this decade so that should make online NASCAR betting very interesting. Let’s take a look at the Samsung 500 scheduled for Sunday, April 5th.

NASCAR betting last season in this race saw Carl Edwards the winner with Jimmie Johnson finishing second and Kyle Busch third. Last year there was a green-white-checker finish which meant they actually raced over 508 miles before they were done.

Jeff Burton was the NASCAR betting winner of this event in 2007 and he is the only driver to win this race twice. Burton has made 15 starts in this event and has seven top-10 finishes in NASCAR betting. That includes three top-five finishes and his two NASCAR betting wins.

Kasey Kahne rewarded those who took him in online NASCAR betting in 2006 as he took the checkered flag. Fords and Dodges did quite well from 2001 through 2005 as Dale Jarrett, Matt Kenseth, Ryan Newman, Elliott Sadler and Greg Biffle won in NASCAR betting. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the popular NASCAR betting winner in this race in 2000.

Last year there were a total of six cautions for 27 laps. A total of six drivers held the lead last season in this race with NASCAR betting winner Carl Edwards leading the most with 123 laps.

Jimmie Johnson has the best average finish of any driver in this NASCAR betting race. He has finished outside of the Top 10 only once at Texas in ten starts. Denny Hamlin has had a lot of success as well at Texas. In six starts he has five top-10 finishes and could be a good choice in online NASCAR betting since he is not one of the favorites.

If you are looking for an interesting fact about NASCAR betting in this race here is one for you. Jeff Gordon has never won at Texas Motor Speedway, one of only two tracks on the schedule where he has not won. In 15 starts, Gordon has seven top-10 finishes. Last year Gordon finished last in this race in NASCAR betting so he should want some revenge.

Online NASCAR betting facts tell us that only four drivers have raced all 14 Cup events at Texas: Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte, Mark Martin and Jeff Burton.
