2017 Coca Cola 600 Betting Odds, Speeds and Picks

Wes grew up around cars at the family business. He makes no attempt to hide his love of early 90s GM products, and still repents selling his sweet '94 Pontiac Sunbird a few years back.

Who’s going to win the Coca Cola 600? The Memorial Day weekend race is usually a bit of a wildcard to predict – the extra 100 miles levels the playing field for some. Fuel mileage and attrition have to be factors.

Because of this, the race has had its share of first-time winners and surprise endings.

2017 Coca Cola 600 First-Time Winner

If you’re looking for a first-time winner, I’d go with Ryan Blaney. He’s been coming on lately, had the second fastest practice time, and has the youth to muscle the car around all 600 miles strong. The Wood Brothers also have a history of winning the crown jewel Nascar races. Honorable mention here would be Erik Jones.

2017 Coca Cola 600 Top Pick

A safer pick would be Kyle Larson. With one win and numerous top-fives, this almost seems like Larson’s race to lose at this point – although he certainly could find a way to do that. His performance in the All-Star race a week ago and top practice speed makes him an even better bet. I’m feeling good about Dale Jr. here as a second guess. It seems like the appropriate stage for him to get a win that would be a crowd favorite.

If you don’t want to blindly go with one of our picks, here are the betting odds and practice speeds to help you form your opinion.
