NASCAR iRacing at Talladega Odds, Betting Notes

William Byron has won the past two NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series races along with leading nearly 60% of all laps led this season, so it’s no surprise to see him as the overwhelming favorite at +200.

Timmy Hill, who won at Texas and has yet to finish outside of the top three, is next at +700.

Outside of the two favorites, Denny Hamlin (+1000) is notable as the only other driver to win a NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series race. Hamlin won the season-opening event at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Hamlin is joined by Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch at 10-1.
