Expert NASCAR handicappers everywhere are going to have a tough time getting their Quaker State 400 picks right this weekend because there is just no history to go off of at this track. This is the first ever Sprint Cup race in Sparta, and though the 1.5 mile tri-oval does look a heck of a lot like a ton of other tracks on the NASCAR circuit, every track has its quirks, and this one will be no exception. That being said, there have been Nationwide Series races here, and the last three winners of the Save the Children 300 that have been run at Kentucky Speedway have all been Joey Logano (Current Quaker State 400 Odds: 30 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook). Whether this truly gives the youngster that much of a leg up in this race or not is still to be determined, especially since it is so difficult to like a driver that probably isn’t even going to make the Chase for the Championship this year. Still, Logano has shown some spunk in his career, and he definitely is on the hot seat in that No. 20 Home Depot car, so he really would love to be able to perform at Sparta to help keep his ride intact for next season.

Of course, we all have to keep a really close eye on the points leader, Carl Edwards (Quaker State 400 Lines: 8 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook). We know that the No. 99 has really become a threat this year, and in relatively unfamiliar territory, we do think for a change that he is ready to jump out of his shell and pick up another win even though it has been quite some time since he has been to Victory Lane (the NASCAR Sprint Cup All Star Race notwithstanding). Edwards is consistently at the front of the field though, and we know that his time will come once again to claim glory en route to what could be his first Sprint Cup title.

One driver that has done a ton of testing here at Sparta is Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Odds to Win the Quaker State 400: 17 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). We continue to ask when the day will come when Little E will make it back to Victory Lane after a three year absence, but there is definitely a more pressing question involving him right now. Earnhardt has dropped to No. 7 in the Sprint Cup standings right now, and though he does have a healthy 61 point cushion on the safety zone, we know that any given race can change everything. Earnhardt Jr. definitely cannot afford a terrible run here on Saturday night, and with all of the testing that his No. 88 team has done at this track over the years, he could be at a definite advantage going forward in this race.
