QuikTrip 500 Fantasy Picks
*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this weekend's QuikTrip 500 with three or more appearances at the Atlanta Motor Speedway track unless otherwise noted.
When it comes to winning rate, nobody's been more efficient here at Atlanta Motor Speedway than Brad Keselowski. In 12 total appearances, Keselowski has won two times (16.67 percent), and he also boasts the best top-5 finishing rate (33.33 percent) and the second-best top-10 finishing rate (66.67 percent). While Keselowski does have the fourth-best average finishing position (14.58), he has led only 135 laps on this track, which is certainly a lower number than you might expect for the driver with the best winning rate.
Chase Elliott doesn't have quite the winning pedigree on this track as Keselowski, but it's all relative for a driver like Elliott, who has only five races under his belt here. In those five appearances, Elliott has managed to post the field-best average finishing position (10.00), best top-10 finishing rate (80.00 percent) and the best top-20 finishing rate (100.00 percent). However, Elliott has never won here and led for a total of only 26 laps.
Kevin Harvick comes into Sunday's race as both the betting favorite to win it all (+550), according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the hottest driver on this track in recent performances among the entire field. In his last three races here, Harvick has posted two wins (field best), three top-5 finishes (tied for field best) and a field-best average finishing position of 2.00.
