NASCAR at Darlington: Odds, key stats, bets to consider for Southern 500

The rich southern history of NASCAR is going to be renewed this weekend using throwback paint schemes, particular memorabilia and nostalgia since the circuit heads to historic Darlington Raceway for its famous Southern 500, unofficially among NASCAR’s four big races.

Sunday night’s race also marks the second-to-last race of the season before the 16-driver playoffs start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (-79 points from cutoff), Ryan Newman (-91), Daniel Suarez (-93) and Paul Menard (-99) are drivers now with a slim chance to make the playoffs without a win while the rest of the field needs a victory at Darlington or Indianapolis to punch their ticket into the playoffs.

With”The Lady in Black” ready to paint a Darlington stripe on anyone who gets too near her wall, drivers will need to be at their best since the track changes when the sexy South Carolina sun begins to set at the 1.366-mile asphalt track. Among the most unique tracks in NASCAR features 25 degrees of banking in Turns 1 and 2, and 23 degrees in Turns 3 and 4 as the trail narrows by 17 ft as the vehicle rounds the oblong oblong.

There’s no other track like Darlington which makes it tough to handicap but the monitor is very abrasive like similar paths in length at Atlanta and Chicagoland. Sunday’s race-favorite Kevin Harvick will be using his winning Atlanta chassis that led 181 of 325 laps at February while Kyle Busch expects another 50+ lap-leading win at Darlington like he’d at Chicago this summer. The last member of the”Big 3,” Martin Truex Jr. is your 2016 Darlington winner who has a series of three top-10 finishes in the monitor.

Entering Sunday’s race with the fourth-shortest odds is a driver who has mastered Darlington and still needs a good showing to secure a spot in the playoffs: Denny Hamlin.

The No. 11 Toyota driver is a two-time Darlington winner and defending race winner. Hamlin boasts the very best driver evaluation (110.3 — well above the upcoming statistical best of Kyle Busch in 105.1), the very best average running place (7.8) and tops among the fastest laps run (272) in this race. Hamlin offers 10 top-10 endings in 12 career starts at Darlington, including seven top-fives to go together with his two wins.
