NASCAR Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart Betting Preview to Win that Race

Atlanta Motor Speedway will welcome the NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday afternoon for the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart, with the start scheduled for 3:00 pm Eastern time. The telecast will be on USA Network, and you can listen to the radio call on PRN or SiriusXM. Last week, Tyler Reddick paid off on +2500 odds to win the Kwik Trip 250 at Road America, notching his first Cup Series victory in the process. Reddick and pole winner Chase Elliott dueled back and fourth, but Reddick emerged to be the 13th different winner in a race this year – and the fifth to win his first Cup Series race in 2022. Elliott controlled the first two stages but did not win either one, opting to pit before the end each time to hold his position. After the last green-flag pit stop on Lap 44 (of 62), Elliott edged Reddick coming out of pit row to stay in front. Reddick closed in on Lap 46 and used his braking savvy to get next to Elliott’s left rear quarter-panel. After that, he drew even going into Turn 6 and drew clear off the corner. After that, he never looked back, winning by 3.304 seconds.

Now, let’s look ahead to Sunday’s race, with odds for each driver and our NASCAR betting suggestions.

Chase Elliott may have been sidelined by that pit decision in the third stage, and that played a role in his failure to win back-to-back races. However, Elliott is a confident driver, and this is his home track.

Ross Chastain was one of several leaders who wrecked at Atlanta the last time around. This does not happen much in plate racing, but Atlanta’s track could be unique that way. Chastain was leading here last time before blowing a tire, and he still managed to come in second. He took first in the first race at Talladega, a comparable track.

Denny Hamlin has an average finish of 15th over the last 28 plate races, excluding Chase Briscoe, but Briscoe’s sample size is extremely small.

Ryan Blaney did not do well in the first Atlanta race, but Blaney has prospered in just about each plate race he has entered. In four of the last five plate races at Daytona, Blaney has finished no worse than sixth, including wins at Talladega in 2019 and 2020.

Kyle Larson was wrecked while fighting for the lead in the spring Atlanta race, but even before the wreck, his car had a lot of damage and was held together with tape. This should not repeat itself this time around.

Chris Buescher had finished seven straight plate races in the top ten since 2020 until coming in dead last at Talladega. Will he bounce back?

Aric Almirola has finished in the top ten eight straight times at Talladega, which helps his average in plate races. However, if you look at all of the plate tracks, he has just one top-ten finish in the last eight events since the fall of 2020.

Corey LaJoie finished in the top five in the spring race at Atlanta, so if you’re looking for a dark horse, here’s one. Michael McDowell is another, currently in the best season of his career. He won at Daytona in 2021 and needs a win here to move toward the playoffs.
