The restrictor plates will probably come off with this race, so before making your 2019 Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 picks, make sure you check out the projected leaderboard and newest NASCAR predictions in the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors such as track history and current results into consideration.
It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top contender from the start. Anybody who has followed its selections is way, way up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Events in iconic places like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. Now his version simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we can tell you that the version is top on Jimmie Johnson, who yells towards the top of this 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 leaderboard despite going off as a 25-1 long shot.
The seven-time cup champion had a solid run last week at the Daytona 500, finishing ninth as a 43-year-old in his 19th season on NASCAR’s top circuit. He heads to a track where he has won five times in his career.
Johnson won the first two races at Atlanta Motor Speedway as soon as the event was changed from the latter part of the year to right after Daytona. He also won the overdue race at Atlanta in 2004 and won both events there in 2007.
Johnson will start in 11th on Sunday, and also the model anticipates NASCAR’s elder statesman to stay close to the front of the pack and supply the potential for a huge payout.
Another shocker from the model: Kyle Busch, among the top Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t even crack the top five.
