2019 Bojangles Southern 500 Odds, Preview & Expert Prediction

Denny Hamlin

Hamlin has won two of the last four NASCAR events. Hamlin won the last event at Bristol, and has finished in the top five in each of the last six races. Denny has won the Bojangles’ Southern 500 twice, and has won at Darlington on five different occasions while racing in the Xfinity Series. He loves this track, as he has finished fourth or better five of the last seven times that he has raced at Darlington. Hamlin will want to gain valuable playoff points, so he’ll be trying to get as near to the top as possible to gain those points.

Ryan Newman

Newman raced well at Bristol, and looks to continue to ride the momentum into Darlington. He enjoys racing at Darlington, as he has seven top 10 finishes in his last 10 races at the South Carolina raceway. Look for big things from him this weekend.

Chase Elliott

Elliott has been on a roll as of late. With his win in New York, he has been climbing up the playoff standings. In his four career races at Darlington, he has finished in the top 10 on two different occasions. In last year’s Bojangles’ Southern 500, Elliott finished fifth. He would love nothing more than to get his third win of the season here at Darlington.

Kyle Busch

Busch has had a stellar 2019 season. He has done well at Darlington throughout his career. Although he has only won once at Darlington, and finished 2nd in 2017, he still has finished in seventh or above in six of his last seven races here. He has won at Darlington twice in the XFinity Series. Busch wants to do well here to gain valuable playoff points.

Joey Logano

Logano has been on a downward slide in the last few races. He has finished outside of the top 10 in the last four NASCAR events. However, he has recently raced well at Darlington, finishing second at last year’s race, and finishing fifth or better in three of the last four races at the Darlington Speedway. Logano needs to get back into the swing of things, and there’s no better place to do it than at Darlington.

Brad Keselowski

Keselowski won the Bojangles’ Southern 500 last year. Along with his victory, he has five top ten finishes in his ten career races at the Darlington Speedway. Keselowski would love to add to his playoff point total, so look for big things from him this weekend.Kevin HarvickThings didn’t go the way Harvick wanted them to at Bristol. Coming off his disappointing finish there, Harvick will look to get back on track at Darlington. He won this race in 2014, and hs five top five finishes in his last six starts here.
