NASCAR Sprint FedEx 400 Preview and Prediction
Race: FedEx 400
Date: Sunday, June 3, 2012
Time: 1 p.m. (ET)
Broadcast: FOX

Last Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600, Kasey Kahne raced his way to the checkered flag after starting seventh for his first victory of the season.

Denny Hamlin ended-up second and Kyle Busch took third to post his fourth-straight top-five finish.

The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for this Sunday’s race along with their current odds to win as provided by Bovada.

The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)

After an uncharacteristic slow start in which he managed just one top-five finish in the first eight races, Kyle Busch has turned things around in a hurry with four-straight top-fives including a win at Richmond.

This change of fortunes has vaulted the No.18 car to eighth in the standings with 391 points which helps explains why this team has been opened as a 7/1 second-favorite to take the checkered flag this Sunday. Busch has posted top-10 finishes in his last four races at Dover including a victory in this race in 2010. [ad-8757089]

Last year in this race he ended-up fourth after starting seventh. Overall, he has seven top-five finishes in 14 career races at this track.

The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)

The Monster Mile is definitely not one of Denny Hamlin’s favorite tracks with just two top-10 finishes in his last nine races at Dover, but the value in his 10/1 odds to win his first race here lies in his current form. The No.11 car has already posted six top-five finishes this season including victories at Phoenix and Kansas.

Hamlin’s back-to-back second-place finishes at Darlington and Charlotte have him in third-place in the standings with 437 points; just 16 points out of the lead.

The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)

If you are looking for a driver with longer odds but definitely capable at competing at this track, then take a second look at Clint Bowyer at 25/1. He is coming off a 13th-place finish in last week’s race after starting fifth, but he has guided the No.15 car to five top-10 finishes this season and remains just out of the top 10 in the standings with 366 points.

Bowyer has never won at Dover but he does have five top-10 finishes here including a sixth-place finish in last year’s race after starting 22nd.
