Which driver among Larson, Blaney, Logano and Hamlin deserves the longest look to win the 2022 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500?
Blaney won the 2021 Folds of Honor. Larson finish second. So the fact Kyle and Ryan are the chalks shouldn’t surprise anyone. Throw a dart if you want to back either. Larson failed in Phoenix, but he’s had the better season so far. Also, Larson has led the most laps in this race, 269. But Blaney won in Phoenix. So both are worth a look.
Even though Blaney and Larson are both worth a look, neither offers value. So if you want to bet chalk, consider backing Joey Logano or Denny Hamlin. Denny finished fourth in this last year while Logano is driving great. Joey has 3 top ten finishes in the 5 races so far in 2022.
Which driver or drivers from +1300 to +1800 odds have the best shot of winning the QuikTrip 500?
On March 6, Alex Bowman won in Las Vegas. He finished fourteenth in Phoenix last week. Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate is driving well enough to warrant a look. Bowman can get it done for sure. So can Kyle Busch. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver finished fourth at the Duel #2, sixth at the Daytona 500, fourteenth at California, fourth at Las Vegas, and seventh at Phoenix. Busch could be sitting on a win. Give Kyle a huge shot to grab the checkered flag on Sunday.
What drivers in the +2000 to +2500 category are worth looking at to win the race?
Brad Keselowski hasn’t finished better than twenty-third in the last 3 races. But he’s won 2 of the last 5 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500s. So he’s definitely worth a look at the +2000 odds. Kyle’s older brother Kurt, another Hendrick driver, has a better shot than the +2000 odds indicate. The older Busch hasn’t finished worse than nineteenth in the first five races. He’s finished in the top ten in 3-of-5. Kurt has a real shot.
Is there a driver at +3000 or higher who can win the 2022 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500?
Chris Buescher shouldn’t offer +7000 odds. The Roush Fenway Racing driver has turned around his form. Buescher improved from his thirty-fifth in California to an eighteenth finish in Las Vegas. Last week in Phoenix, Buescher finished tenth. Not only is Buescher driving well, but he also finished seventh at the 2021 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. If you want to back a massive longshot with a chance, Buescher looks like the guy.
