Picks for Fans Who Bet on Auto Racing
Martin Truex Jr (+460). Truex leads the drivers’ standings with 881 points, has finished in 3rd place in two of his last five races, and has won another two of those five – including the 2017 I Love New York 355 at The Glen on Sunday. Truex has five top 3 finishes at Michigan International Speedway but has yet to win a race there.
Kyle Busch (+460). Busch won the 2011 Pure Michigan 400 and was the runner-up in the 2008 edition of the race (then known as the 3M Performance 400 Presented by Bondo). Additionally, he finished 3rd in the 2011 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 and 4th at the 2013 Quicken Loans 400 – both defunct races were run at at Michigan International Speedway. Busch came in 7th last weekend at The Glen and won the previous race, the Overton’s 400.
Kyle Larson (+560). Two of Larson’s three career Cup Series wins have come in Michigan. He won the 2016 Pure Michigan 400 as well as the FireKeepers Casino 400 earlier this year. This Saturday could not come soon enough to save Larson from another disappointing result.

Auto racing betting contenders
Kyle Busch (-110). Oh, Hi again, Mr. Busch. Long time no see. Kurt’s brother won the 2015 LTi Printing 200, finished 2nd in the following editions: 2007 and 2009 (then known as Michigan 200) and 2013 (known as Michigan National Guard 200). Moreover, he placed 3rd in 2010 and 5th in 2014 (VFW 200 and Careers for Veterans 200, respectively).
Christopher Bell (+355). The driver’s standings leader finished 24th in the 2016 running of this race, but has been on fire all throughout the current season, finishing inside the top 10 in all but one race and winning four – including the Overton’s 150 on Saturday before last.
