It will be a tough race. This is a non-points race, with a $1million prize up for grabs so drivers are racing for pride and money which is pretty much what they risk their lives for every weekend anyhow. This is one of the most beloved events on the NASCAR circuit because of its raw, “me versus the world” type of feel to it.
Previously known as the Winston Select (when smoking was cool, guys!), the Sprint All-Star race will run Saturday, May 17th beginning at around 9pm EST from the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
The oddsmakers certainly think so. Jimmie Johnson leads all NASCAR Sprint All-Star Weekend picks at +500, odds he shares only with Kevin Harvick. A five pack of front runner sit right behind the two favorites as well. Logano, Kahne, Keselowski and Jeff Gordon all have +800 odds to win this weekend.
Those aren’t the only heavy hitters who will be trying to garner your attention on the betting board. There’s also a fan vote, which for whatever reason always seems to go to Danica Patrick. She’s the longest shot on the board at 100-to-1 to win the All-Star event, though she ha much shorter 12-to-1 odds to win the Sprint Cup Showdown.
That’s the event that runs on Friday night and makes NASCAR Sprint All-Star Weekend picks very interesting. Those who have not qualified for the All-Star race itself duel in a race-in type of event the night before. Kyle Larson and Clint Bowyer are the heavy +250 favorites in the Showdown, and nothing will stand in their way as far as I’m concerned. Not even Danica Patrick.
This is meant to be a fun filled event, drawing fans to a race that usually brings out the best in drivers. I don’t see how you can bet against Jimmie Johnson, who has dominated this track and been a constant force this season, but that’s why you’ll have to make your own NASCAR Sprint All-Star Weekend picks by scanning the betting board and taking your favorite driver.
At its very core, this is an all-star event, so have some fun with it. Take whomever you’d like, but just remember that when you take away all the glitz and glamour of the series, Jimmie Johnson has come through in NASCAR Sprint All-Star Weekend picks more than any other driver.
