dale earnhardt jrThe 2015 Sprint Cup season opens with the Sprint Unlimited on February 14th and it is followed by the Budweiser Duel 1 and Duel 2 on the 19th. Those non-points earning event lead into the official start of the new campaign, which is, of course, the 57th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 22. A start time has no yet been determinedĀ for “The Great American Race”, but offshore bookmaker Sportsbook.ag has released its 2015 Daytona 500 Odds. The favorite to win the race is Dale Earnhardt Jr. at +1000 NASCAR Odds ($100 wins $1000). He is followed by Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth, all of which are drawing +1200 to win the 2015 Daytona 500.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has yet to win a Sprint Cup championship, but he became a two-time winner of the series most prestigious and recognized event last February when he took the checkered flag at Daytona International Speedway.

Earnhardt, who nabbed his first Daytona 500 win in February of 2004, led 54 of the 200 laps, including the final one, en route to $1,505,363 in winnings. He was a +1200 pick to win last year’s race while Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch were +1000 co-favorites. Johnson and Kenseth had won the previous two Daytona 500s, but Busch had never finished better than fourth in the race.

Should Earnhardt win the 2015 Daytona 500, he will become the sixth driver to have won the raceĀ at least three times, joining Jeff Gordon (3), Dale Jarrett (3), Bobby Allison (3), Cale Yarborough (4) and Richard Petty (7).
