The NASCAR schedule rolls on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET with the 2019 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. Our proven projection model has simulated this storied event at Bristol Motor Speedway 10,000 times and came up with a surprising leaderboard.
Developed by DFS pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors such as track history and recent results into account.
The model is off to an extremely strong start in NASCAR this year. It correctly predicted Martin Truex Jr.'s victory at the Toyota/Save Mart 350. It also called Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four contender from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers at the Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano in its projected top five, and then hit nine of the top 10 drivers last week at the Go Bowling at The Glen. Additionally, it had Coca-Cola 600 winner Martin Truex Jr. in its top two and then nailed Kyle Busch's huge win in the first race at Pocono.
It also made some huge calls last year, including correctly projecting wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. It also nailed three of the top four finishers at Michigan and two of the top four at the Daytona 500. Anybody who has followed its picks is WAY up!
For NASCAR at Bristol, we can tell you the model is high on Chase Elliott, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite going off as a long shot at 20-1 odds. And a massive shocker: Kyle Larson, one of the top Vegas favorites at 8-1, barely cracks the top 10. There are far better values in a loaded lineup.
The model is also targeting two OTHER drivers with NASCAR at Bristol odds of 20-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in any NASCAR picks.
