2014 Las Vegas Race Odds

  Las Vegas might be the most under appreciated city on the 2014 Sprint Cup schedule. It gets one race per year, and that race is the third of the 2014 Sprint Cup season. Because it's Vegas and during Spring Break, the race is usually well attended and animated. Vegas also hosts the Sprint Cup banquet which serves as an easy to consume one week PR blitz. Vegas probably deserves a second race, in part because the odds for Sunday's race look so appealing. (more...) ...

Being below 5/1 is. As an extension, Matt Kenseth,  Kasey Kahne and Clint Bowyer have a ...

So I say this with as much due respect as possible. Stop trying to be the Stone Cold Steve Austin of NASCAR.   Drinking beer, dropping bad language and fighting the man make for a great character in scripted entertainment.
