Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500
Wednesday June 10
Harry’s 6 pack is back and in my last 3 packs I have a 14-4 against the spread record. Here are my locks for Martinsville on yet another mid-week race.
-115 Ryan Blaney
-115 Kevin Harvick
Blaney had two third place finishes in Charlotte and this track is one of Harvick’s most disliked. Harvick has not led a lap here since 2016.
-125 Martin Truex
-105 Denny Hamlin
Truex has four top 5 finishes here in his last five races and that includes his victory last October. Truex dominated that day as led for over 85% of the race.
-115 Clint Bowyer
-115 Jimmy Johnson
This track of late has not been good for Johnson and Bowyer has been racing better of late (2 races ago he scored a surprising 2nd place finish).
-140 Christopher Bell
+110 Cole Custer
Bell continues to get better every week. He has two top 10’s this season. Custer has just one.
Manufacturer of Winning Car
With Truex, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Eric Jones I’ll take my chances with “you got it…..Toyota”.
+185 John H Nemechek
+225 Bubba Wallace
+285 Ty Dillon
+285 Michael McDowell
Wallace is taking a lot of flack over his post-race interview (or lack there of). Nemechek has been running well lately but I’ll take a shot with Bubba.
