Charlotte - Open/Challenge
Taking the Field for the Open at 8/1.
Read that Toyota is introducing some new equipment at Charlotte and should be a lot faster. Stremme was very fast at the Charlotte test as well.
Short race improves the chances greatly for the lessor teams.
haven't said to much this year, but this upcoming weekend might be a good place to take a shot. remember that they are taking the top 2 this year from the open, and a guy like edwards (3/1) would be happy to just get to the challenge race, so i can see him getting into 2nd then just riding along. also the 2nd segment is 20 laps not 10 like last year.
with that in mind i like marlin at 25/1, stremme at 12 and truex jr at 25/1.
all 3 have run good on 20-30 lap runs and with only 1 pit stop the crews can't screw it up for them.
vegas insider shows truex at 20 to 1 and montoya at 15 to 1 but no one has anything close to that. station casinos where these lines supposed to come from have 5 to 1 on truex and 7 to 1 on montoya. so it's all b.s. - kind of like vegas has ridiculously high odds on the oscars which they are only happy to publish since you can't actually bet them there. i think it should be a 4 car race in the open between bowyer, edwards, montoya and truex assuming they qualify o.k. fan vote winner will probably be michael waltrip
Picked up some Edwards @ 2.8/1
McMurray over Truex +1.15 no idea why he is a dog in this one
McMurray over Green -1.65 this is not a COT race
Burton over Kahne -1.65 (suckered in by tv commentators talking about how bad Kahne's car is)
Burton over Gordon +1.80
Sorenson over Riggs +1.00
Starting position is fairly big in the Open.
Newman over Mears -1.45
