It’s another quick turnaround for NASCAR with the Cup Series heading to Florida for Sunday’s Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The reconfigured schedule has a bunch of races packed tightly together with this being the second event this week after Martin Truex Jr. won at Martinsville on Wednesday. Drivers also need to adjust to the 1.5-mile oval at Miami following the half-mile sprint in Virginia.  Bookmaker is offering a generous welcome bonus with a maximum of $1000

One of the biggest winners over the past three years, Truex earned his first victory of the season by holding off the pack at Martinsville, denying Kevin Harvick the opportunity to become the first back-to-back winner this season. Both drivers opened at the top of the odds board with Kyle Busch looking for his first win of the season close behind. Visit for a complete updated odds list and to place your wager.

Going from the shortest track on the Cup Series circuit to the 1.5-mile oval at Miami is something drivers will need to get used to. It’s not like they haven’t done it before, though. In fact it happened just recently with the last four races flip-flopping between short and intermediate tracks. Drivers will maneuver around HMS for 267 laps covering 400 miles.

Will Kyle Busch finally breakthrough for his first win of the season? You know it’s going to happen since I’m fading him after he let me down the last two races. Kyle is near the top of the odds board sitting just behind co-favorites Harvick and Truex on the opening line.

The same random draw used for the last several races to determine the starting lineup was in effect again with Denny Hamlin looking to become the first three-time winner this season sitting on the pole. Another two-time winner Joey Logano joins Hamlin on the front row. Martinsville winner Truex gets the sixth spot with co-favorite Harvick starting from the seventh position.

Another oddity for drivers will be fans in the stands. The first seven post-coronavirus races operated behind closed doors but that will change on Sunday with around 1,000 Florida service members allowed to watch from the grandstands.

Dixie Vodka 400 Preview

We see a lot of the same drivers in the winner’s circle and at the top of the odds board each race. Harvick, Logano, Hamlin and Brad Keselowski each have a pair of victories this season in the 11 events that have taken place.

Kyle Busch won here last year and also took the checkered flag in 2015, but we could say he’s slumping since he has yet to win a Cup Series race. He does, however, have a win in the Xfinity Series and Truck Series. Kyle and Chase Elliott are scheduled to drive in Saturday’s Truck Series race. Kyle has won at least four Cup races in each of the past five seasons so you expect him to finish first at some point.

Instead take a look at Kyle’s brother Kurt Busch, who offers a massive payout with a victory. With eight top-10 finishes, including three top-5s, in his last nine Cup Series starts, Kurt looks poised for another strong finish. He’s had a number of impressive runs at Miami with a win in 2002 and seven career top-10 showings. Avoiding the winner’s circle this season, Kurt is a strong alternate market play with handsome odds there as well.

We have yet to see a back-to-back winner this season and the last to turn the trick was Truex in the Cup Series playoffs last year. There are a lot of things working in his favor Sunday. He has a nice starting spot for one. He’s coming off a win and has been solid since a rough opening to the campaign. And most importantly he’s torn up Homestead with a win and two runner-up showings in his last three starts.

It’s been kind of hit or miss with Hamlin over his last six starts. Three of those had him at 17th or worse, including a 24th-place showing at Martinsville. On the flip side the other three have been top-5s with a win at Darlington and a runner-up at Charlotte. He also toppled the field at the season opening Daytona 500. Starting on the pole could be what gets him back to the winner’s circle.

We see a lot of the usual suspects so you might as well shuffle the deck and pick a card. Kyle Busch is going to a win race sooner or later. Harvick and Truex are among the hottest drivers and Hamlin on the pole has to be considered. However, the recent history Truex has at Homestead puts him above the crowd.

Dixie Vodka 400 Odds Pick: Martin Truex Jr.
