We run down the early odds for NASCAR’s first race back from the pandemic. They’ll be going 400 miles at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500

NASCAR is set to make its return this coming weekend with a 400 mile race at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. The organizing body suspended the 2020 season following the March 8th FanShield 500 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now, auto-racing is back in the United States. NASCAR is tightening up its schedule over the next two weeks to make up for missed time. The Cup Series will run four races between May 17th and May 27th. Darlington will host a 400 mile race on Sunday, May 17th and then a 500 kilometer race three days later on Wednesday, May 20th. Four days later, Charlotte Motor Speedway will host the annual Memorial Day weekend Coca-Cola 600 on May 24th. Three days later the Cup Series will wrap up this stretch with a 500 kilometer race in Charlotte.

This Sunday’s race at Darlington will get underway at 3:30 p.m. ET and will air on FOX. Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick are co-favorites for the race. Through four races this season, Harvick has two top-fives and four top-tens and has led 159 laps, while Busch has two and two, respectively, with a Did Not Finish and 14 laps led.

Harvick and Kurt Busch have the lengthiest history at Darlington, with 23 races apiece, two ahead of Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman. Harvick has one win, eight top fives finishes, and 12 top 10 finishes, with two poles and a leading 581 laps lead among actives racers.
