Ambetter Health 400 Top Predictions 2023

One surprise: the model is high on Martin Truex Jr., even though he’s a 22-1 long shot to make the 2023 NASCAR final in Atlanta. It’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 42-year-old made his 625th career NASCAR Cup Series start last week at Phoenix, but he’s still going strong. Truex is sixth in the NASCAR standings after finishing 17th or better in the first four races, leading laps in two of those races.

Toyota hasn’t been able to match Chevrolet’s speed so far in 2023, but with the parity created by the Next Generation Car, it’s only a matter of time before Joe Gibbs Racing and the rest of the Camrys call it quits. Truex is a 31-time winner in the NASCAR Cup Series and although he has never been to victory lane in Atlanta, he has knocked on the door. Truex has finished 11th or better in his last 10 starts at the 1.5-mile oval and has led in six of those races. See who else to root for at SportsLine.

And a huge shocker: William Byron, the 9-1 favorite in Vegas, stumbles in a big way and fails to make the top five. There are much better prices in the Ambetter Health 400 starting lineup for 2023. Byron won the spring race at Atlanta last season and is coming off back-to-back wins that include a win at a 1.5-mile oval (Las Vegas), so it’s no surprise the fact that it is the favorite.

However, tire failures have been an issue at Atlanta since the surface was resurfaced during the off-season and additional tuning means the track is likely to run differently again. Byron finished 30th after a crash in the summer race and has finished 17th or worse in five of his seven career Cup starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. See which other drivers to avoid at SportsLine.
