It made some enormous calls in NASCAR last year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a leading competition from the beginning. Anyone 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. Now his model simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.

For the 2019 QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta, we can inform you the model is high on Chase Elliott, who makes a strong run in the checkered flag despite heading off at 10-1 odds. Elliott does not have a long history at Atlanta, but he’s had success there in all three of his starts in the track since linking the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He’s finished inside the top 10 in every one of these 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 in Atlanta Motor Speedway five times in his career, so it is something of a house track for its 23-year-old. The version expects him to ride that edge to the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

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

The 2019 Daytona 500 runner-up began on the pole in this race a year before, but wound up finishing in seventh place. The year prior, he had another quick ride and began the race , but ended up in 16th.

Considering 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 values within this affluent 2019 QuikTrip 500 lineup compared to the 6-1 premium you will need to cover him.

The model is also targeting three other motorists with 2019 NASCAR in Atlanta odds of 10-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anybody who backs these shots can hit it big.
