NASCAR betting odds are on the board for the Food City Dirt Race, which takes place on Sunday, March 28 at the Bristol Motor Speedway.
This will mark the first Cup Series event on a dirt track since 1970, which has impacted the top of the NASCAR race odds board and dropped some of the usual favorites down a bit.
We bring you the NASCAR odds to win the Food City Dirt Race, with the green flag at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Who is the favorite to win the Food City Dirt Race?
Kyle Larson, who has won and placed second in two of his last three races, is the betting favorite to win the Food City Dirt Race at +240 odds.
Larson finished second at last week's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 and won the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube on March 7. The decorated dirt track racer should benefit from the Bristol Motor Speedway converting from concrete to a dirt race track for this year's event.
Christopher Bell, another driver with lots of dirt track racing experience, is second on the odds board at +550, while Austin Dillon (+900) and Chase Briscoe (+1,000) are next in line.
NASCAR Cup Series favorite Chase Elliott is sixth at +1,300 odds.

How to bet on NASCAR
The most popular way to bet on NASCAR is by simply picking the winner of a race, which is also referred to as an outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, including betting on whether or not a driver will finish in the Top 3 or Top 10 of a race.
Another popular betting option is head-to-head matchup betting, where sportsbooks pair up two drivers and you choose who you think will finish better in the race, which is far easier than trying to select someone to win out of a field of approximately 40 drivers.
