NASCAR has turned this year’s track race into a nighttime event, in an effort to minimize the amount of dust drivers encounter, wrote FOX Sports NASCAR writer Bob Pockrass.

The race will be NASCAR’s first Easter event since the 1989 race at Richmond Raceway won by Rusty Wallace.

FOX Bet sports trader AJ Devine said a rider’s experience will be key on a dirt road.

Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano, Tyler Reddick and Kyle Larson look to the Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway and the various challenges it presents.

Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano, Tyler Reddick and Kyle Larson look to the Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway and the various challenges it presents.

“Whenever there is a race on a more unique track like this, it will be a good idea to see who has experience in these conditions,” Devine explained. “Right now we have Kyle Larson as the favorite at +650 (later moved to +350) which should come as no surprise given his history on dirt tracks. Right behind him is Joey Logano, the last season’s winner, at +800 (later moved to +1200).”

Given the unpredictable nature of dirt road racing, Devine has a pick for bettors looking for a driver with longer odds than Larson, Logano, Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick (both +800) .

“If you’re looking for more of a long shot, I’d consider picking up a flyer on Martin Truex Jr. at +1400 (later moved to +2500),” Devine said. “He started this race strong last year, winning the first stage. If it hadn’t been for a puncture later in the race, he could have been in contention on the home stretch.”

Larson has 12.98% of the bets and 34.52% of the stake at FOX Bet on Saturday. Truex holds 4.97% of the bets and 2.16% of the stake.
