It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, such as nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it is off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top contender from the beginning. Anybody who has followed its selections is way, way up.

McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic venues like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his blood. His version mimicked the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.

For the 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we can inform you the version is top on Chase Elliott, making a strong run in the checkered flag despite going off at 10-1 odds. Elliott doesn’t have a long history at Atlanta, but he has had success there at all three of his starts at the track since joining the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He’s finished within the top 10 in each 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 at 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 occasions in his career, so it’s something of a home track for its 23-year-old. The model anticipates him to ride that advantage towards the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

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

The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up started on the rod in this race a year ago, but wound up finishing in seventh position. The year before, he had yet another quick ride in qualifying and began the race , but wound up in 16th.

Considering his win at Atlanta at 2013, Busch has only conducted 56.7 percent of his laps inside the top 15. For his career, he has finished outside the top 10 in 13 of his 20 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There are far better worth in this affluent 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup than the 6-1 premium you’ll want to pay for him.

The version is also targeting three other drivers using 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta odds of 10-1 or even longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anybody who backs these shots could hit it big.
