For the second successive weekend, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be racing in Charlotte Motor Speedwday (6:00 p.m. ET, FOX). However, this time rather than an All-Star shootout, drivers are in for a grueling 600 miles from the Cup Series’ longest race of this year.

Charlotte is a 1.5-mile oval having a relatively old surface which has been repaved back in 2006. We saw in the All-Star race which tires failed to make a difference and that track position was also extremely important, so this race ought to offer a good mix of numerous 1.5-mile tracks.

The most recent 1.5-mile points-paying race was also a night race at Kansas Speedwday. In that race, the top five in typical green-flag speed all showed up at the top nine at 15-lap speed in Happy Hour, despite the race being at night and final practice throughout the day.

We’ve got a similar scenario at Charlotte this weekend, so I’ll surely rely on long-haul pace in addition to 1.5-mile performance this year and past Charlotte oval functionality when handicapping the race.

Armed with these data points, let us get right into my four favorite bets to win tonight’s race, plus bonus top-five and top-10 props.

A quick primer about the odds below: A $100 bet at +375 chances would profit $375, while a $200 wager at -200 odds would cover $100.

Kevin Harvick +600 to Acquire
Kyle Busch is the favorite thanks to his exceptional speed in Happy Hour and three wins to Harvick’s zero wins this season. But, it might be argued that Harvick should be a co-favorite despite completing only 13th on the 10-lap board in final practice.

That is because in opening training, he had been considerably better relative to the remainder of the area over 10 consecutive laps. His fifth-place time throughout the cooler temperatures is encouraging. In fact, Harvick’s Crew Chief Rodney Childers stated the cars are really sensitive to track changes, which they were really great in opening clinic throughout the warmer temperatures.
