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

McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic venues like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. Now his model simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.

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

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

Another shocker from the version: Kyle Busch, one of the best Vegas favorites at 6-1, does not crack the top five.

The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up started on the rod in this race a season ago, but ended up finishing in seventh place. The year prior, he had another fast ride and began the race , but wound up in 16th.

Since his win at Atlanta in 2013, Busch has only conducted 56.7 percent of his laps inside 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 in this loaded 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you will want to pay for him.

The model can be targeting three other drivers using 2019 NASCAR at Atlanta odds of 10-1 or even more time to make a serious run at winning it all. Anybody who backs these shots could hit it big.
