The NASCAR circuit moves north to New Hampshire for Sunday’s Lenox Industrial Tools 301 race at Loudon’s “The Magic Mile.” This is no cookie-cutter track, considered to be one of the toughest oval courses for drivers, as it is sometimes referred to as “Martinsville on steroids.” This 1.058-mile track completed in 1990 is mostly flat with 1° straights and turns varying from 7° to 9°. The frontstretch and backstretch are both exactly 1,500 feet, making it a true oval. Ryan Newman is the defending champion (and pole winner) of the Lenox, and he also won the pole for the Loudon race last September, the Sylvania 300, which was won by Tony Stewart.


Drivers to Watch


Ryan Newman (15/1) - His odds have dropped considerably from the 50-to-1 he was getting last week, but 15-to-1 still presents great value for last year’s double pole winner in Loudon. Newman has won three times in New Hampshire and tallied 13 top-10 finishes. This includes four top-8’s in his past five starts at this track. Although Newman has just one top-10 since he won at Martinsville on April 1, that strong showing actually came last week when he started second and finished fifth at Daytona. In addition to the poles at Loudon last year, he’s started fifth or better in five of his past eight races, so he should put himself in a good position to compete for the title on Sunday


Tony Stewart (6/1) - We recommended placing a small wager on Stewart last week, and doing so would’ve returned your money twelve-fold. His odds are only half as favorable this week, but he’s still worth a look, considering he’s finished second, second and first in his past three New Hampshire starts. These are part of his three victories and 14 top-5’s in 26 career starts at Loudon. And with his Daytona win last week, Stewart has placed in the top-3 in four of his past five races this season.


Matt Kenseth (25/1) - He’s gone from race favorite at Daytona to a legitimate darkhorse at 25-to-1 in New Hampshire. Vegas is likely basing these long odds on Kenseth’s average finish of 21.1 at this track since 2008. However, he once thrived at Loudon, posting nine top-10’s in a 10-race span from 2003 to 2007. Considering how consistently good the current points leader has been this season with nine top-5’s, he’s certainly worth a small wager on Sunday.


Kurt Busch (75/1) - If it’s a huge payout you’re seeking on Sunday, look no further than Busch, who sits at 75-to-1 despite numerous success at New Hampshire. In addition to his three checkered flags (2008, 2004 sweep), he has four other top-5 finishes at Loudon. He’s been competitive lately too, as he has an average finish of 9.0 since his last win, finishing sixth or better four times in seven races. The 2012 season hasn’t been kind to No. 51, with just two top-10’s and an average finish of 22.7.


Greg Biffle (25/1) - You probably won’t see odds this favorable for Biffle for the remainder of the season, so enjoy them while you can. Biffle won at New Hampshire in 2008 and has five top-5’s at Loudon, all since 2005. He has also been no lower than fourth in the point standings during this 2012 season thanks to eight top-5’s and a 9.7 average finish. With 16 of his 17 career wins coming on intermediate tracks, there’s no reason Biffle can’t be standing in the winners circle on Sunday afternoon.
