One thing’s for sure: you can’t accuse the folks at New York New York Hotel & Casino of playing favorites. New York New York is home to the Don Schumacher Racing team this weekend, but none of DSR’s drivers were picked to win the 12th annual NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.

New York New York’s Race & Sports Book today posted their odds for the Vegas weekend nitrofest. Defending champion Larry Dixon is favored ahead of Tony Schumacher in the Top Fuel Dragster category, 5/2 and 3/1, respectively. Perennial favorite and defending Funny Car champion John Force is listed at 5/2.
The Summit-sponsored cars of Jason Line (2/1) and Greg Anderson (5/2) top the Pro Stock sheet.
