NASCAR All-Star Race: Betting Odds As Cup Series’ Favorites Clash

  • The NASCAR All-Star race is ready to run Wednesday night from Bristol Motor Speedway.
  • Kevin Harvick (+400), Chase Elliot (+600), and Denny Hamlin (+600) leading the betting odds in NASCAR’s annual star showcase.
  • A unique format awaits the drivers as both glory and season points are up for grabs.

BRISTOL, Tenn. – The world of NASCAR looks to its annual All-Star race this week, as the best in the sport come together for one of the most unique races on the circuit.

NASCAR could have easily nixed the affair in light of the massive scheduling changes the series underwent but elected to keep the race, albeit with some very unique changes.

The first being that the All-Star race will be run at Bristol Motor Speedway instead of Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time since 1986.

Another first for the sport is the reintroduction of fans. Up to 30,000 fans will be permitted at the speedway to take in the race.

With the original race scheduled for May 17, the best in the sport will now climb into the cars on a Wednesday night under the lights in Tennessee.

With Tennessee being a legal sports betting state there will certainly be more than a few fans in the crowd with some vested interest in the race. However, with none of those Tennessee sportsbooks having launched yet, bettors are still engaging in online sportsbooks to get in on the NASCAR action.

Full betting odds are available for the race, with Kevin Harvick leading the pack.

Unique Format

This year, the All-Star Race will consist of 140 total laps over four stages of racing. The first stage will be 55 laps, the middle two stages 35, and the final stretch a mere 15 laps.

Bristol is known as one of the shortest tracks on the season, with laps taking an estimated 15 seconds.

This means that the final stretch of the race could be under a mere five minutes. Talk about high-pressure racing.

Additionally, the field was assembled via any driver who won a race in 2019 or 2020. Those sixteen drivers have already qualified, with four spots remaining.

Those four spots will be decided by a qualifying race that will run prior to the main event. The drivers who win each of the three stages will qualify for the big race, with the final spot being decided by a fan vote.

Best Value Picks

Those looking to wager at betting sites on the race have plenty of opportunities to find some great value. With such a small field, the opportunity for truly anyone to make a run is prevalent.

Brad Keselowski +900

Keselowski has been solid over the last month continuing another good season from the #2. Brad also won the May race at Bristol and knows how to win on this short track. Getting him at +900 is a steal.

Kyle Busch +600

With probably some of his highest odds of the season, Kyle Busch can be found at +600. Kyle hasn’t had his best season but still is capable of winning literally any race you put him in, in any sort of vehicle.

Take advantage of these odds before Kyle gets back to his winning ways.

Joey Logano +900

In a similar vein as Busch, Joey Logano is extremely undervalued at +900. While Logano is more of a star at restrictor-plate races, there is nothing stopping him from winning this race handily. Joey has had a fast car this entire season and is too good to ignore at +900.
