NBC TV ratings for NASCAR's Brickyard race not great after deeper look

Top 2020 Quaker State 400 predictions
For the 2020 Quaker State 400, the model is high on Erik Jones, even though he's a 20-1 long shot in the latest 2020 NASCAR at Kentucky odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 24-year-old has had an up-and-down season and is currently 17th in the standings after a crash at Indianapolis led to a 33rd-place finish.
However, Jones has two top-five finishes in his last four starts, while the Joe Gibbs Racing team has been dominant at Kentucky with five wins in the nine NASCAR Cup Series races there. Jones has finished seventh or better in his three career starts at Kentucky Speedway and was third last season.
And a massive shocker: Kevin Harvick, the Vegas favorite at 11-2, stumbles big-time and barely cracks the top five. There are far better values in this loaded 2020 Quaker State 400 starting lineup. Harvick has been the most dominant driver in NASCAR this season and is coming off his fourth win of the season at The Brickyard on Sunday.
Attention NASCAR teams: Porsche drivers available for Daytona!
Porsche driver Nick Tandy has Aug. 14-16 free and is offering up his vast experience on the Daytona International Speedway road course to NASCAR teams.This fan actually has impressive credentials, too — a few thousand laps around the 12-turn, 3.56-mile layout that annually plays host to the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January.
However, he hasn't been able to get over the hump at Kentucky so far in his career. Harvick has just one top-five finish at the 1.5-mile tri-oval and last year he failed to crack the top 20 altogether. With NASCAR still running without qualifying or practice, Harvick's track history makes him a fade on Sunday.
