Mark Martin(4-1) is the favorite to win this Saturday’s Sam’s Town 300 followed by his teammate Carl Edwards (5-1). Last year’s winner, Kevin Harvick, is set at 6-1. Some of the other Cup drivers that will be participating in the Busch event are former Vegas winner Joe Nemechek (8-1), Kyle Busch (10-1), Jamie McMuarry (15-1), Elliott Sadler (20-1), Greg Biffle (20-1), Scott Riggs (25-1), Michael Waltrip (15-1), Kasey Kahne (15-1), Sterling Marlin (30-1), and Dave Blaney (30-1).

The top Busch regular is Martin Truex Jr (10-1), who won last week’s Mexico City debut. Expect a Cup driver to win this race again, as they do almost every year, and don’t be shocked if a Roush driver wins it again as they have done on three other occasions. Martin won at California and will be hard to beat again this week. The best long shot of the bunch will be Shane Hmiel (25-1).
