Harvick Betting on NASCAR Favorite at Chicagoland

October 30th, 2018 Auto Racing

Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick remain the top weekly betting on NASCAR choices.  There is plenty of good reason for their chalky status.  Busch leads the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Standings.  With Harvick right behind him.  Harvick has won the most races.  With Busch right behind him.  This has been the case since the first month of the season.  But a third driver has thrown his hat in the ring.  Defending champion Martin Truex Jr has caught fire.  Truex is coming off a clever yet impressive win last week.  His crew chief’s pit bluff brought him a win at Sonoma.
