NASCAR Sprint Cup Lenox Industrial Tools 301 Preview and Prediction
Race: Lenox Industrial Tools 301
Date: Sunday, July 15, 2012
Time: 12:00 p.m. (ET)
Sunday afternoon’s race is scheduled to start at 12:00 p.m. and it will be broadcast nationally on TNT.
Tony Stewart made a statement last Saturday night that he has every intention of repeating as this season’s Sprint Cup Champion with a victory in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. Jeff Burton took second and Matt Kenseth remained hot with a third-place finish.
The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for Sunday’s race along with their current odds to win.
The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Tony Stewart has been opened at 6/1 to make it two straight wins and given how streaky the No. 14 car has been this season there is some tremendous value in these odds. The defending champ started the season with two victories in his first five races and has now finished third or better in four of his last five races. Stewart is currently in fifth place in the standings with 586 points and has a total of eight top-five finishes on the year. Adding even more value to these odds is his second-place finish in this race the past two seasons coupled with a victory in the second race at Loudon last season.
The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)
Kevin Harvick has yet to make his way to victory lane this season, but given his past success and current form, this could be the perfect week to capitalize on his 12/1 odds to finally end the drought. The No. 29 car has already recorded eight top-10 finishes in the first 18 races this season and is in sixth-place in the standings with 586 points. The value in Harvick’s odds take a bit of a hit with an average finishing position of 14.1 at New Hampshire, but he does have a pair of fifth-place finishes in both races here in 2010 on his resume.
The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)
Any time you can get longer odds on the current Sprint Cup point leader jump at the chance. New Hampshire has not been one of Matt Kenseth’s favorite tracks in recent years with just one top-10 finish in his last eight races here, which just so happens to be a sixth-place finish in his last race here, but at 25/1 he is well worth the risk. The No. 17 car has worked its way to the top of the standings with one victory (Daytona 500) and eight other top-five finishes in the first 18 point races on the slate.
