NASCAR: Richmond & Championship Odds


This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Richmond International Raceway and Richmond is always a great race to watch. With Kyle Busch winning in everything he drives it is not a surprise that he has the best odds to win Saturday night. What about the other drivers though?

Kyle Busch is the 4/1 favorite to win Saturday and that comes as no surprise as he dominates everything he races in and he has won at Richmond before. Matt Kenseth who has had a interesting week with all of the penalties then coming back to win the pole has odds of 13/2. Kasey Kahne who is also off to a great start this year has odds of 15/2. Dale Earnhardt Jr who really needs to win after having some difficult past few weeks has odds of 14/1. Martin Truex Jr who is getting closer every week to breaking that winless streak has odds of 18/1. Danica Patrick who is still has yet to impress me and a lot of fans has odds of 200/1.

With Kyle Busch dominating this year, it is a little surprising that he still does not have the best odds to win the championship. Jimmie Johnson has the best odds still at 3/1 followed by Kyle Busch who has odds of 5/1. Last years champ, Brad Keselowski is third on the list with a 7/1 chance. Danica Patrick has odds of 2000/1.

This years has no doubt been an exciting one with the new car, fights and great racing. I’m sure it will continue throughout the year and will be really great next week at Talladega.

    Should anyone care…..since our illustrious powers that be imposed “sequestration” all active military aircraft fly-bys have been banned. The overflight tonight was made by some of our “warbird” owners and restorers who keep many of our retired military aircraft active and appreciated. Most of these individuals and groups are members of one of the many wings of the Commemorative Air Force (known as the Confederate Air Force prior to the stupidity of political correctness), the Valiant Air Command, the Collings Foundation and many other like groups based throughout the U. S. most of which are open for membership to any and all who have an affection for military aircraft of the past.
