The race is 325 laps, which adds up to 500 miles, and it usually lasts around three and a half hours. In each of the past four years, the races have lasted between 3:29:54 and 3:33:08, so it’s safe to say the race will probably be right around three and a half hours long.

Kevin Harvick is the defending champ and favorite, installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at +600. He’ll start in the No. 7 position on the fourth row. Denny Hamlin claimed the pole via performance metric formula and will be joined on the front row by Martin Truex, Jr. Truex has the second best odds to win at +650 and Hamlin is third at +700, tied with Kyle Larson.
