    The 2019 Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 runs Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin will look to follow up his historic win with another strong performance. He’s recorded at 15-1 in the latest 2019 Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 odds, with the event’s defending champion, Kevin Harvick, installed as the Vegas favorite at 4-1. Harvick will start in 18th, but finished second from that place back in 2009 at Atlanta. Then there is Aric Almirola, who won the pole and is moving off in 20-1 NASCAR at Atlanta odds. The restrictor plates will probably come off with this race, so before making your own 2019 Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 picks, be sure to have a look at the projected leaderboard and newest NASCAR predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

    Produced by DFS pro and SportsLine predictive data scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track record and recent results into account.

    It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, such as nailing wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. in Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top contender from the beginning. Anyone who has followed its picks is way, way up.

    McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Events in 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 that the model is top on Jimmie Johnson, who surges towards the very top of the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 leaderboard despite heading off as a 25-1 long shot.

    The seven-time cup champion had a strong run at the Daytona 500, finishing ninth as a 43-year-old in his 19th year on NASCAR’s top circuit. Now he heads into a track where he’s 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 this year to correct after Daytona. In addition, he won the overdue race at Atlanta in 2004 and won both events there in 2007.

    Johnson will start in 11th on Sunday, and the version anticipates NASCAR’s elder statesman to stay close to the front of the package and provide the possibility of a massive payout.

    Another shocker from the model: Kyle Busch, one of the top Vegas favorites in 6-1, does not crack the top five.
