NASCAR Betting Online: Another eliminator round is up as the last eight NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers head to the AAA Texas 500 on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014, at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. Jeff Gordon leads the standings and has been near the top of the leaderboard throughout the season, so he should be among the favored drivers in NASCAR odds.
Jeff Gordon has 4044 points this year, but his lead is small because that is the way the eliminator rounds are designed. He is three points ahead of Ryan Newman, while Joey Logano is four points back and Matt Kenseth is only five behind. Gordon has experienced a renaissance season after dominating consistently in the 1990s and early 2000s. He needs to perform well in three more races to attain a title which was unlikely to begin the year.
Jimmie Johnson has won the AAA Texas 500 each of the past two years but has been eliminated from the Chase, finishing in 12th place this season. Denny Hamlin is a former champion at this race and currently sits in fifth place, seven points behind Gordon. If he can put another victory under his belt, it will help him move up the standings. Carl Edwards (20 points behind Gordon), Brad Keselowski (31 points) and Kevin Harvick (33 points) are the other drivers remaining. They are trying to track down Gordon but do not have much breathing room as the contender list continues to shorten in NASCAR odds.
