YellaWood 500 Prediction

The top of the YellaWood 500 odds list is fairly close, but I'm siding with Joey Logano at +1200 here. The 32-year-old veteran has plenty of experience at Talladega, winning the YellaWood 500 twice (2015 and 2016) and notching nine top-five finishes in 27 career appearances at the track.

With Team Penske also winning five of the last eight editions of the YellaWood 500, Logano is a great pick this week.
