NASCAR All-Star Race Odds: Latest Betting Odds To Win The 2024 NASCAR All-Star Race

Fact Checked by Blake Weishaar

Kyle Larson is on a tear, which doesn’t bode well for the competition in the NASCAR All-Star Race at Wilkesboro Speedway

Larson will likely be the odds favorite for the event, thanks to a strong season that, as of early May, includes two race wins. But he’ll have to hold off a host of challengers like Denny Hamlin and William Byron, who are also multiple-race winners on the season.

The event begins Sunday, May 19 at 8:00 PM. Below, I provide the latest updates on the NASCAR All-Star Race betting odds, including my favorite bets for the weekend and pre-race reading on the favorites, contenders, and longshots to win the race.

Who has the best odds to win the NASCAR All-Star Race right now?

Denny Hamlin has the best odds to win the NASCAR All-Star Race right now, according to oddsmakers at North Carolina sportsbooks.

Hamlin & his No. 11 Toyota are no strangers to winning, entering May with three wins in seven starts as a part of the historic Joe Gibbs Racing crew.

NASCAR All-Star Race Odds Over Time

But Hamlin isn't the only top contender. William Byron is another short-track ace who entered May tied for the series leads in wins. Those three, along with Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, and Martin Truex Jr., form the main group of drivers to watch.

NASCAR All-Star Race Betting Favorites

Denny Hamlin (+450)

There’s no more confident driver in NASCAR when he gets on a roll. And Hamlin has certainly been feeling it this season, with three wins and another top-five finish through the first week of May.

Strengths

21: The number of career victories Hamlin owns on tracks of 1 mile or less in length, making him one of the best short-track racers of his era.

Weaknesses

13.4: His average finish through the first weekend of May, which speaks to the inconsistency that’s partially defined Hamlin’s career.

Kyle Larson (+700)

Larson ended the first weekend in May with two race wins, and more pole positions and laps led than anyone else on the circuit. With an average finish of 10.8 through the season’s 12 races, he's always fast.

Strengths

145 laps led: Larson’s dominance in last year’s All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro--the first time the series had competed there in decades--vividly showed his team’s superior ability to adapt.

Weaknesses

530 miles: The distance between North Wilkesboro and Indianapolis, where Larson will be prepping for the Indy 500. Kevin Harvick is on standby in case Larson misses any practice or qualifying time.

William Byron (+700)

Byron emerged as a championship contender in 2023, and backed that up by winning three of the first eight races in 2024. He's prevailed this season on a short track, a superspeedway and a road course.

Strengths

7: Byron’s top-10 finishes through the first weekend in May, tied for best on the circuit, which included a win on the short track at Martinsville.

Weaknesses

28: Byron’s average finish in his last two starts though the first weekend in May, raising questions about whether he peaked too early.

NASCAR All-Star Race Contenders

Martin Truex Jr. (+900)

Talk of potential retirement has turned to talk of another championship run for Truex, who knocks out top-10 finishes with clinical efficiency. He placed third and fourth in his past two starts through the first weekend in May.
Strengths

8.9: Truex’s average finish, best on the Cup Series through 12 races.

Weaknesses

0: Truex’s number of wins through 12 races. Clearly, he’s struggling to convert those strong runs into victories.

Christopher Bell (+900)

It was an up-and-down first 12 races for Bell, who won at Phoenix but then finished deep in the 30s in three of four starts. Yet his cars are always fast, and North Wilkesboro is the kind of track that suits him.

Strengths

4: The number of career Cup Series wins that Bell owns on tracks of 1 mile or less in length.

Weaknesses

6: The number of laps Bell led in his final five races combined through the first weekend in May, evidence that he’s not up front very often.

Chase Elliott (+1200)

Elliott’s April victory in Texas was his first since late 2022. It ignited a span of five top-5s in six starts through the first week of May.
Strengths

9.7: Elliott’s average finish through the first 12 weeks of the season, which speaks to his consistency.

Weaknesses

131: Elliott’s laps led through 12 races, which tied for seventh, meaning he’s not up front as much as others.

NASCAR All-Star Race Longshots

Michael McDowell (+7000)

No driver gets more out of an underfunded car than McDowell, a former Daytona 500 champion who earned a berth into the All-Star Race by winning the Indianapolis Grand Prix in 2023.

Strengths

5.6: McDowell’s average starting spot over his final three races through the opening weekend of May, proof that his car has some speed

Weaknesses

23.8: McDowell’s average finish through the first 12 races, proof his team can struggle to get to the checkered flag.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (+20000)

Stenhouse punched his ticket into the NASCAR All-Star race by winning last season’s Daytona 500. But he’s just as good on short tracks, were he owns 20 career top-5s.

Strengths

4: Stenhouse’s best finish of the season through the first 12 races

Weaknesses

23: Stenhouse’s average finish otherwise, evidence of a difficult season so far for his small race team

Daniel Suarez (+4000)

The only surprise winner of 2024 so far, Suarez clinched his All-Star berth by winning at Atlanta in February. It was his first Cup Series victory on an oval track.

Strengths

7: Suarez’s finishing position in last year’s All-Star Race.

Weaknesses

1: Number of top-5 finishes Suarez has recorded since his Atlanta victory, through the season’s first 12 races
