After a quick journey to the West Coast that saw Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. win in Las Vegas and Phoenix, NASCAR’s Cup Series has Georgia on its mind for the first of two races at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
This weekend’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 could be another chance to see a new face in Victory Lane. Through the first five races of the season, five different drivers have taken the checkered flag, and Denny Hamlin continues to hold the overall points lead, thanks to four top-5 finishes and three stage wins.
You could be a big winner on Sunday's action as well. All you have to do is pick the right answers to six questions about Stage 2 of the race, and you can win the jackpot: $10,000 of Clint Bowyer’s money.

Here are the six questions in play for this week’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 race at Atlanta:
In the past three races, those three have all placed in the top 10 at the end of Stage 2. It also happens to be true that they finished in the top five of Stage 2 in both West Coast races, so the cars they are running are holding well through the races. It’s a good trend to go with.
Truex’s car had some serious speed last week – enough that it carried over to winning the race. Logano, however, was right there with him. And on a season-long trend, Hamlin’s car has run extremely fast through Stage 2.
How many cars will Hendrick Motorsports have in the Top 10 of Stage 2?
The choices: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
Where will previous race winner Martin Truex Jr. finish in Stage 2?
The choices: 1st or 2nd, 3rd or 4th, 5th or 6th, 7th or 8th, 9th or 10th, outside the top 10
Truex was second at the end of Stage 2 last week. The past four races, Truex has finished second, fourth, fifth and eighth in Stage 2, and the only race in which he wasn’t in the top 10 at the conclusion of Stage 2 was the Daytona 500, in which he was 25th.
How many cars will Toyota have in the top 10 finishing positions of Stage 2?
The choices: 0-1, 2, 3, 4, 5+
Toyota had three cars in the top 10 last week in Phoenix, with Truex (second), Hamlin (third) and Christopher Bell (10th). The week before in Las Vegas, the manufacturer placed four in the top 10, with Hamlin (third), Bell (seventh), Truex (eighth) and Kyle Busch (ninth). If you like Larson to be the best guy in Stage 2, you would look at the Chevy option.
Which of the below drivers will have the best finishing position in Stage 2?
The choices: Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin
It seems easy to say at this point, but Hamlin has featured the best Stage 2 finishes for most of the season. Truex, however, is starting to close that gap. Either driver could be taken with confidence.
