Shelby 427 Betting Preview

Matt Kenseth will be trying to keep his winning streak alive this weekend when he takes the track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Sunday afternoon's Shelby 427.

Kenseth held off Jeff Gordon to get the win last weekend in the Auto Club 500, making it two victories in a row for the Daytona 500 champion. Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle, and Kurt Busch rounded out the Top 5 on Sunday

Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, and Brian Vickers made up the rest of the Top 10 at the Auto Club 500. Martin Truex Jr. finished in 27th place, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. had to settle for a 39th-place result.

Sports Betting blog reports: Kenseth holds an 81-point lead on Gordon in the Sprint Cup Series driver standings after two events, with Stewart and Kurt Busch tied for third place. Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Michael Waltrip, David Ragan, Edwards, Juan Montoya, Elliott Sadler, and David Reutimann round out the Top 12.

Edwards won the March event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last season, when it was called the UAW-Dodge 400. Johnson visited victory lane in this race in each of 2005, 2006, and 2007, while Kenseth took the checkered flag in both 2003 and 2004. Gordon (2001), Jeff Burton (1999 and 2000), and Mark Martin (1998) also have Nevada wins.

After racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will move on to Atlanta for the Kobalt Tools 500 on March 8. The month then ends with the Food City 500 at Bristol on March 22, and the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville on March 29.
