Nothing really “odd” about these picks: Last year’s Smith’s 350 winner and a three-time IndyCar champion have been selected as the favorites to win this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Austin Dillon, winner of LVMS’ 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, has been tapped by the Las Vegas Hilton Race & Sports Book to repeat Saturday afternoon.

And Jay Rood, Vice President of Race & Sports MGM Resorts International, is not betting against Franchitti, who is going for his fourth IZOD IndyCar title.

Four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday Jr. has 50 wins to his credit – albeit none at LVMS – and is listed at 5-1. Danica Patrick, departing the IZOD IndyCar Series for full-time NASCAR employment next season, is listed at 60-1.

The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower will host a free NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver autograph session on Friday, Oct. 14 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the Back Alley Bar.
