NASCAR Preview: Coca-Cola 600

This is going to be an exciting weekend for motorsports fans as the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Drivers’ championship leader Kyle Larson attempts to do double duty and complete the Coca-Cola 600 and Indy500 races on the same day.

Will we see him win at least one of them? The answer is yes if you’re asking the BetUS oddsmakers.

They’re giving Larson the shortest Coca-Cola 600 odds of all the drivers set to compete in Charlotte.

However, if you’re asking Denny Hamlin, Tyler Reddick, or some of the other top candidates to win this race, the answer is no. So, who should you back?

2024 Coca-Cola 600 Odds

Kyle Larson+400
Denny Hamlin+600
Tyler Reddick+800
William Byron+1000
Chase Elliott+1000

Kyle Larson is one of the best drivers in the world, the evidence being that he’s currently sitting at the very top of the standings in the Drivers’ championship of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series.

However, he’s won just two races so far, which isn’t too impressive, especially given that there are two other drivers with three wins already in 2024. Plus, in his most recent race, Larson finished 34th.

On a more positive note, he does have some good memories from the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina – he won this event in 2021.

There is, however, another driver who won this race more than once, namely, Martin Truex Jr.

Of all the drivers competing in the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series, only Martin Truex Jr. has won the Coca-Cola 600 on multiple occasions. He won the event in 2016 and 2019. However, despite being successful in this race, he’s not among the top favorites to win on May 26, 2024. There are six drivers with shorter Coca-Cola 600 odds than him.

He’s priced at +1100, while there are three drivers with odds of +1000 – Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott, and William Byron. Tyler Reddick’s odds are +800, while Denny Hamlin is second-favorite with the odds of +600. At the very top of the favorites list is Kyle Larson with +400 odds. One of the possible reasons for this is that Truex hasn’t won a single race in 2024 and we’re already at the half point of the season. Maybe May 26 is when his wait comes to an end?
