Sunday's 2019 Pennzoil 400 guarantees plenty of enthusiasm for NASCAR fans everywhere. Last year, Kevin Harvick claimed the checkered flag and jumpstarted his dominant season that saw him record eight victories. Now, he'll look to defend his title in the 2019 Pennzoil 400, which gets underway at 3:30 p.m. ET out of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Harvick enters Sunday's race since the Vegas favored at 9-2 at the live 2019 Pennzoil 400 chances. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch (5-1), Martin Truex Jr. (6-1), Kyle Larson (6-1) and Brad Keselowski (6-1) are all going off at 6-1 or lower. Weather won't be a variable, as the newest Las Vegas forecast is calling for temperatures from the mid-60s and bright skies. This season's version of the Pennzoil 400 has a very talented field of drivers, so before you make any 2019 Pennzoil 400 picks or input a daily Fantasy NASCAR tournament on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to consult the 2019 Pennzoil 400 projected leaderboard in the proven computer version at SportsLine.
Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive data scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors like track history and recent results into account.
It made some huge calls in NASCAR last year, such as properly projecting wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it's off to a solid start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four competition and placing QuikTrip 500 winner Brad Keselowski in his projected top five. Anybody who has followed its picks is way up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic places like Las Vegas Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His version mimicked the Pennzoil 400 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For your 2019 Pennzoil 400, we could tell you the version is high on Aric Almirola, who makes a serious run at the checkered flag despite heading off as a very long shot at 20-1 Pennzoil 400 chances. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.
Almirola is coming off an impressive performance last week in the Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He led 36 laps before finishing in the top 10 and he will will seem to carry over that momentum into Sunday's 2019 NASCAR in Las Vegas race.
