Favorites to Win the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500
Brad Keselowski is the man to beat at Atlanta.
The Team Penske driver won two of the last three races at the track, his other result being a second-place finish.
Keselowski has five consecutive top 10 finishes at Atlanta, and seven in the last ten starts at the oval.
The 2012 champion has three top 10 results in four races this season but is still chasing after his first win.
It’s somewhat ironic that Harvick, The Closer, has struggled to translate his dominant pace at Atlanta into wins.
The Stewart-Haas driver led at least 100 laps in six of the last ten races at the track but has only won once.
Harvick also has three stage wins during that span.
The 2014 champion finished eight of the last ten races at the track inside the top 10.
Atlanta is also the track where Harvick scored the first of his 49 Cup Series wins.
He added a second victory at the track in 2018, 17 years after the first one.
Harvick has finished all four races this season inside the top 10.
Blaney has done well at all tracks this season.
The Team Penske driver has a career-best finish of 12th at Atlanta, but that will likely change this weekend.
Blaney led 41 laps in last year’s race, but an out of sequence stop towards the end relegated him to 22nd.
Despite his poor record at Atlanta, #12 has the right equipment in hand to put that behind him.
Outside Picks for the 2020 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500
Kurt Busch has eight top 10 finishes in the last ten races at Atlanta.
A two-time winner at the track, the 2004 champion is on a streak of four consecutive top 10s at the 1.5-mile oval.
The Chip Ganassi driver finished a solid third last year, and led a combined 136 laps in the last five races.
Busch has one top 5 finish this season.
Martin Truex Jr.
Truex has five consecutive top 10 finishes at Atlanta, scoring a career-best second last year.
The Georgia oval remains one of the few tracks where the 2018 champion has yet to win a race.
Much like his Joe Gibbs Racing teammates, Truex needs a good result to recover from a poor run of form post-Daytona.
Kyle Larson had three strong showings at Atlanta in the last three races.
He finished second in 2017, ninth in 2018 and led 142 laps last year, finishing first and second in stages 1 and 2 before dropping to 12th at the flag.
Chip Ganassi had two strong cars in 2019, and it could very well pull off a repeat in 2020.
Larson has two top 10 finishes in four starts this season.
