Bettors could have had Brad Keselowski at 20-1 to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship at the beginning of the season and 8-1 prior to the Chase.

For 2013, bettors might be able to find odds on him to repeat at a higher number than most defending champions just because of the changes that will be occurring at Penske Racing.

It’s definitely hard enough to repeat as champ – unless you’re Jimmie Johnson, but it’s even harder to perform well for teams changing over manufacturers and engines.

Dodge took the championship and closed up their NASCAR program forcing Roger Penske to operate with two Fords next season when the circuit begins with the Daytona 500.

They’ll run Roush-Yates engines, but the combination of a new style of car that debuts next season, and then the changes internally, add to Keselowski’s difficulty of repeating.

Everyone will be in the same boat with the changes, but just like we saw with Hendrick Motorsports when the Car of Tomorrow debuted, they’ll have a huge edge in technology and money over the rest of the teams.

Keselowski will be pressed with questions about next season when he’s in Las Vegas at the Wynn for the NASCAR award ceremonies Nov. 30.

He’ll be doing an hour on the NASCAR Live radio program in the Wynn sports book at 4 p.m. – Micah Roberts
