2013 BOJANGLES SOUTHERN 500 ODDS

 The 2013 Sprint Cup season isn’t even one-third of the way complete, but odds makers clearly have a Fave Four.  Here’s how a sizeable shift in the numbers will influence how you should watch Saturday’s Southern 500.   Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne are all 8/1 or lower. Denny Hamlin, who hasn’t run in a month is 8/1, but he at least has the best average finish among active drivers here. Kahne is 12th among active ...

2013 AARON’S 499 ODDS

NASCAR’s biggest track is NASCAR’s biggest crapshoot.  Talladega is known for the unknown. Big speed. Bigger packs. The biggest wrecks in racing.

2013 NRA 500 ODDS

NASCAR doesn’t make any sense right now. It’s impossible to write about Sprint  Cup racing, see the title of this column and not address the 800-pound gorilla in the room.  Regardless of where you stand on the issue, there’s no good way to address it Saturday night. It’s not a matter if is something clunky happens, but how soon.  There are plenty of other mindboggling things in play that are more appropriate for Team FOX  to discuss. For example: ...
