It made some huge calls in NASCAR this past year, such as nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a strong start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top competition from the start. Anyone who has followed its selections is way, way up.

McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic venues like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his blood. Now his version mimicked the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.

For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta, we could inform you the version is high on Chase Elliott, making a strong run in the checkered flag despite heading off at 10-1 odds. Elliott doesn’t have a lengthy history at Atlanta, but he’s had success there at all three of his starts in the track since linking the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He has finished inside the top 10 in each of these races and even got a top-five finish in 2017.

Before joining NASCAR’s top circuit, Elliott had two top-five endings at Atlanta in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott is a Georgia native and his dad, Bill Elliott, won at NASCAR’s highest level at Atlanta Motor Speedway five times in his career, so it’s something of a house monitor for its 23-year-old. The model anticipates him to ride that advantage towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

Another shocker from the model: Kyle Busch, one of the best Vegas favorites at 6-1, doesn’t crack the top five.

The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up began on the rod in this race a season before, but ended up finishing in seventh position. The year before, he had another quick ride in qualifying and started the race , but ended up in 16th.

Since his win at Atlanta at 2013, Busch has only run 56.7 percent of his laps within the top 15. For his career, he’s finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better worth within this loaded 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you’ll need to cover him.

The version is also targeting three other motorists using 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta chances of 10-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anybody who backs these long shots could hit it big.
