napa auto parts 200At 2 in the afternoon, the NASCAR boys will meet in Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the next race in the Nationwide Series. ESPN 2 will televise the event, and by now the drivers are already preparing for the day's event. Last year the race had been drastically shortened due to heavy rain, and hopefully this year will run the full course.

According to BetUS, one of the premier online sportsbooks, Marcos Ambrose is favored to win. Ambrose is one of the leading Toyota drivers, and he came in third place in the Cup's Sharpie 500. Ahead of him in the Sharpie 500 was Kyle Busch, also a Toyota driver. Busch ended up taking the victory, and is favored just behind Ambrose. Ambrose has odds of +150 on the future line, while Busch, as well as Ron Fellows, sport +400.

Carl Edwards is next in line for the win, with a line of +450. Edwards has won two Nationwide races this year so far, making his odds a fairly safe bet. Boris Said follows him, with substantially higher odds - this time +700. Said has no wins under his belt in the Nationwide, nor the Sprint Cup, and has never managed to place beyond the 40th in terms of rank. In both the Cup and the Nationwide, he has managed to take top five seven times, but never has he managed a victory out right.

Standing at +900 we have Jacques Villeneuve, a native of Canada. While Villeneuve was moderately successful in the Formula One racing circuit, he has thus far failed to kick it of in NASCAR. In 2008, Villeneuve ranked 111th with 120 points in the Nationwide Series.

Patrick Carpentier is behind Villeneuve with +1500, and he is another driver that has not the best record, but he did take second place in this event last year. Brad Keselowski, who took third in the last race of this season, runs behind Carpentier, but this one has the odds set at +2500.

The field will see +500, and includes Jason Leffler, Ron Hornaday Jr., Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, and Steve Wallace. The race begins at 2 p.m, tickets are still available, and rain is not as likely this year as it was last year. Expect a full, exciting race.
