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

It made some enormous calls in NASCAR last year, including nailing wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top contender from the beginning. Is way, way up.

McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Events in venues like Atlanta Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His version simulated the 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 a total of 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.

For your 2019 QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta, we can tell you the version is high on Jimmie Johnson, that surges towards the top of this 2019 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 leaderboard despite going off as a 25-1 long haul.

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. He heads to a track where he has won five times in his career.

Johnson won the first two races at Atlanta Motor Speedway when the event was changed from the latter part of the season to right after Daytona. He also won the overdue race in Atlanta in 2004 and won both events there in 2007.

Johnson will begin in 11th on Sunday, and the version anticipates NASCAR’s elder statesman to stay close to the front of the pack and provide the potential for a huge payout.

Another shocker from this version: Kyle Busch, among the top Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t crack the top five.
