NASCAR All-Star Race Betting– Johnson Reasserts Himself As Championship Favorite

Posted by Lee-Roy Buckles on 5/19/2010 12:42:21 PM

Online betting players should buckle up for a wild ride this Saturday night as the Sprint Cup series will hold its Sprint All-Star Race, where there are no holds barred. This year’s winner knows how to get to Victory Lane in Charlotte, and he’ll use this race to make a statement to his challengers.

  • What: NASCAR Betting
  • When: Saturday, May 22, 9:00 PM ET
  • Where: Charlotte Motor Speedway, Charlotte, NC
  • Defending Champion: Tony Stewart
    • The Storyline

      There are no points handed out for this race, just a cool million bucks in cash, and bragging rights. It’s always a blast to see NASCAR’s finest not holding back anything for a “good points day”. This race is all about who crosses the finish line first, nothing else.

      NASCAR All-Star Race Betting– The Favorite

      The top tier of drivers will be led by Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch, the trio that has combined to win eight of the 12 races so far this season. Johnson and Hamlin have won three each, and Johnson could have the edge here as he has two wins, six top-10s and an average of 6.0 in eight races. Remember, this track used to be called Lowe’s Motor Speedway, which sponsors Johnson’s No.48 Chevy, and he has won six times in 17 career trips to Charlotte.

      Busch and Hamlin’s aggressive styles should be tailor-made for this race, but it hasn’t gone so well for the JGR duo. Busch has three DNFs in four All-Star races, while Hamlin has a pair of DNFs in three races, and neither has ever won at Charlotte. Hamlin finished fourth here last year, while Busch finished seventh while leading 33 laps. If they can keep their cars clean, it could be a good day for them.

      All-Star Race Betting– The Second Tier

      Jeff Gordon should lead the next group of drivers in your sportsbook, and he has three All-Star wins on his Hall of Fame resume, most recently in 2001. Gordon’s wreck last year was his fourth DNF in an All-Star race, but he knows how to get around at Charlotte with five career wins here. Gordon has come so close on a number of occasions this year, that he may be due in a non-points race.

      Last year’s winner, Tony Stewart, finally broke the top 10 last week at Dover, and the No.14 team will try to keep that run going in the All-Star race, which is either feast or famine for Stewart. The two-time series champion has been in this race 11 times, and he’s finished in the top 10 seven times. The other four finishes were DNFs.

      The RCR duo of Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burton should have similar odds in your sportsbook, although they have to be encouraged with how they’re running this year. Harvick won this race in 2007, but he has almost as many DNFs (three) as he has top-10s (four) in nine starts. Burton has the same number of DNFs and top-10s (four) in 11 All-Star races.

      All-Star Race Betting– The Longshots

      The longshots should be powered by Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won the first All-Star race of the new millennium. He finished 10th in last year’s race, and he’s going to need a good run as the No.88 car has finished 30th or worse in two of its last three races.

      This is also a perfect race for Brad Keselowski to flex his muscles, and the rookie has finished 18th or better in his last three races. Keselowski finished 22nd in last year’s race, and his no-guts-no-glory style is built for the All-Star race.

      All-Star Race Prediction & Outlook

      Everyone has been talking about how Hamlin and Busch are the top challengers to Johnson’s four-year reign atop the Sprint Cup series, and their recent wins, along with Johnson’s struggles, has some doubting the No.48 driver. This team is too good at Charlotte to let the JGR drivers run away with it, and he’s heard people talking. Look for Jimmie Johnson to show he’s still the champion until further notice, and that there’s a good reason why he’s the sports betting favorite to repeat.

      Bet NASCAR: Jimmie Johnson
