As you will see below, Kevin Harvick is the favorite to win this race, but he is not a heavy favorite. Can anybody believe that Jimmie Johnson is still looking for his first win in 2014?
As a bettor there are two way of looking at that. Either Jimmie Johnson is due for a win, or he is a poor bet because he has yet to win at low odds this season.
This is a pretty young race on the NASCAR circuit, and the Kansas Speedway is not one of the older tracks in NASCAR. You can see the previous winners of this race at NASCAR drivers who have won the 5-hour Energy 400 at Kansas Speedway.
