Auto Racing Betting: Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca Cola at Daytona Preview

Posted by The Wiesguy on 7/1/2015 10:26:00 PM

Next up on the NASCAR calendar is the Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca Cola at Daytona on Saturday July 4. This event is always on the closest Saturday to Independence Day and because of that and the location generates some buzz. Sometimes the President even makes an appearance. Last year’s winner was Aric Almirola, who finished with the lowest average lap speed in the history of the event.

There will be two racers in the field who have had a lot of success in this race in the past and they are two of the more recognizable faces in racing. Tony Stewart has won this one four times, last in 2012, and Jeff Gordon has won it three times, last in 2004.

Here are the odds on favourites and a couple of other options.

Dale Earnhardt Jr


I was a little surprised to see Junior have the lowest odds this weekend. However it does make some sense given he is having a good season and has won this race before, as well as two other times at Daytona.

Jeff Gordon

Jimmie Johnson


Both of these racers are very tempting. Per above Gordon has had a lot of success in this race and Johnson is one of the most consistent racers out there. You get a slightly better payoff with either of these guys so I would go with one or the other instead of Earnhardt above. Its all about value.

Kurt Busch

Kevin Harvick

Kasey Kahne

Denny Hamlin

Joe Logano


There are lots of reasons to go with somebody from this group. Kevin Harvick is the current series leader due to his super consistency - only twice in 16 starts has he not finished in the top ten. Logano is also going to be a trendy pick given that he won at Daytona to start the season and has been racing really well with three top fives in a row. The others are certainly no chumps but I am not sure I would punch their ticket. Kurt Busch finished third in this race a year ago, Hamlin fifth but I might be tempted to go with a bigger payoff than either of those guys.

Tony Stewart


Stewart is still one of the most recognizable names in racing. Ever since “the incident” he has not really been the same but the has won this race four times. At +3000 there is absolutely some value with Stewart and if you are making a few wagers on the race you might want to sprinkle some dough on him as your longshot play.



I am not listing all the drivers that have odds but taking the field is not a sucker bet at all given what we have seen in this race and on this track. Sure the stars have won but so did Almirola last year and David Ragan four years ago. There is value in this number too.
