Indianapolis Motor Speedway – Indianapolis, IN Odds to Win Race

The Sprint Cup drivers head to Indianapolis on Sunday for a chance to win the Crown Royal 400, an event that began in 1994. This race was the first to be held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway outside of the Indianapolis 500 since 1916. Each of the four turns on the oval here is banked at nine-degrees exactly. Jeff Gordon has won this race five times (1994, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2014) and was also the youngest driver to ever win it (23 years, two days old in 1994). Now let’s take a look at the field and see who might be crowned after this year’s installment:

Jeff Gordon (+1200) - Gordon has won this race five times in his career and will have plenty of momentum as he goes for a sixth victory. He has now placed top-10 in each of the past three races this season after failing to finish inside the top-15 in the two races before. With Gordon being in great form and very familiar with this course, he’s an excellent pick to win.

Jimmie Johnson (+700) - Johnson has also gotten the best of this course in his career, winning this race four times (2006, 2008, 2009, 2012). He has put together yet another fantastic Sprint Cup season, winning four races on the year and placing in the top-10 in seven of the past 10 races. Johnson is a good choice to win this race and tie Jeff Gordon as the winningest driver in the Crown Royal 400.

Kyle Busch (+1000) - It’s never fun to take three guys that are among the favorites to win an event, but it’d be irresponsible to leave Busch off of this list. He has been on fire since returning from injury at the Coca Cola 600 and has finished in the top-10 in four of the past six races. Busch has also been the winner of three of the past four races, including last week’s 5-hour Energy 301. Making a play on him would be a wise move here.

Paul Menard (+7500) Menard is having his best season since joining the Sprint Cup in 2003, but he has not yet earned his second career victory. He has four top-eight finishes on the year, but he’ll be chomping at the bit to get back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Menard’s only Sprint Cup victory came in this race back in 2011 and he makes for a solid play to win here again.

Jamie McMurray (+3000) - McMurray has also had a very good season, finishing in the top-10 seven times and inside the top-five twice. He has, however, been unable to come away with a victory and, like Menard, will be trying to recapture some magic at the Crown Royal 400. McMurray won this race back in 2010 and should have some solid odds for a guy who has won on this course.
