NASCAR Nationwide Series Betting: Sam’s Town 300
NASCAR betting continues with the Sam’s Town 300 this Sunday. For fans who enjoy the carnage of wrecks this may be the Nationwide Series race for you, as the Sam’s Town 300 is known for being treacherous and having multiple crashes every time out. To put it in perspective, last year’s race had “only” eight cautions. The previous ones had 12, 13, and 12.
There are three previous winners in the field sure to draw betting action at sportsbooks this week: Mark Martin, Kevin Harvick and Joe Nemechek. Martin is a three-time winner, Harvick has two Sam’s Town titles to his name, and Nemechek has one.
Of that group, Harvick seems like the guy to watch this week. He’s the defending champion and has cracked the top four six times in his last eight starts at the Sam’s Town 300. Then again, it’s hard to argue with the three-time winner Martin. He remains Nationwide’s all-time series wins leader at 48 and has never finished worse than sixth in five career starts at this race.

Another driver who should get some bets this week is Reed Sorenson. Through two Nationwide races this season, he leads the series with 78 points. He’s the only driver on the circuit with two straight top-five finishes to start the year. Close behind him and sure to generate some interest among the betting public are Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (73 points) and Jason Leffler (71 points).
Though the big star Kyle Busch may draw some interest, he could be fool’s gold this week. He has just one top-10 finish in seven tries at this week’s host track, Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
