Brickyard 400 - 2010
Current Odds and Analysis
The most attended event in NASCAR is this Sunday's Brickyard 400 at famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was first held in 1994 and marked the first time since 1916 that a race other than the Indy 500 was held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, also known as "The Brickyard".
Last year Jimmie Johnson won the race but it was Juan Pablo Montoya who dominated and led 116 laps before being penalized with 35 laps to go for speeding in the pits. This year Montoya is liated at odds of 8/1 which does present some value. Johnson meanwhile, is favored at odds of 7/2.
He's won at Indianapolis the last two years and three times overall.
