Folds Of Honor QuikTrip 500 (Cup Series) Predictions, Picks, Odds


Even though NASCAR has mandated a restricted-horsepower superspeedway package for the repaved and reconfigured Atlanta Motor Speedway, the speeds at the 1. 54-mile intermediate track should be lightning fast. It remains to be determined if the NASCAR Cup Series car will have the ability to keep close contact with each other in the draft, or if they can separate as the race goes on. Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 will be contested over 325 laps (500.5 miles), with stage breaks scheduled after 105 and 210 laps.

Ross Chastain Has Been Close to Victory, and Atlanta Could Be the Place

After a star-crossed start to the 2022 season (40th at Daytona and 29th at Fontana), Ross Chastain has found his mojo.

Driving for the Trackhouse Racing team co-owned by Justin Marks and rapper Pitbull, Chastain led 83 laps two weeks ago at Las Vegas and finished third. He finished second last Sunday in Phoenix to Chase Briscoe, the first-time winner.

Atlanta might just be the place to win Chastain his breakthrough victory. In January, he was one of three Goodyear tires test participants. On Sunday, the track will be resurfaced and a sneak peek of it could prove to be a good investment. Chastain, a confident driver that is comfortable driving at close quarters and high speeds, is Chastain. He’s priced very attractively at +2500 via DraftKings Sportsbook, and he’s our pick to win the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Can Kurt Busch Deliver Toyota’s First NASCAR Cup Victory of 2022?

Kurt Busch was fifth at Phoenix last Sunday as the top-finishing Toyota.

It hasn’t been an excellent start for the Camry contingent. Ford and Chevrolet won the first two races, while Toyota is yet to win Victory Lane.

This could all change on Sunday, if Busch gets his way. Busch was the winner of last year’s Atlanta summer race in a Chevrolet Chevrolet. This victory came just hours after renovations began. The 1. 54-mile speedway yet, but Busch, like Chastain, participated in the January tire test at the speedway.

Oddsmakers don’t give Busch much of a chance to win on Sunday, but we do–especially at +2000 odds via DraftKings. In fact, we like Busch across the board, including +550 to finish in the top three and +250 to finish in the top five.

Who will be the next NASCAR Cup Series First-Time winner? If you wanted to argue that there is an upheaval in the NASCAR Cup Series, then you would have ample ammunition.

After all, drivers under 30 years old have won the last 10 races in the series. The oldest of those is reigning series champion Kyle Larson, who is 29.

Rookie Austin Cindric, 23, collected his first Cup win in the Daytona 500. Last Sunday, 27-year-old Chase Briscoe won at Phoenix, likewise his first victory in NASCAR’s premier series.

If you’re inclined to stick with the youth movement, we suggest third-place Phoenix finisher Tyler Reddick, 26, as the most likely prospect, particularly at a track like Atlanta, where running the top lane (Reddick’s preference) may pay dividends.

Reddick is offered at +1600 to win (DraftKings) and +500 to finish in the top three. Both plays seem reasonable to us.
