NASCAR at Richmond odds, key stats, bets to consider: Handicap Toyota Owners 400 with similar race tracks


After an exciting race in Tennessee, NASCAR heads to Richmond Raceway Saturday night (6 p.m. CT, FOX) to its third short-track race that the Cup Series season.

Richmond, the website of this Toyota Owners 400, is 0.25 miles more than Bristol and Martinsville, but NASCAR still categorizes it as a short track. It’s actually similar to New Hampshire and Phoenix’s monitor in banking and it.

Kyle Busch, who won Sunday’s race in Bristol as the race-favorite, once again gets the shortest chances (2/1) on the plank in the Westgate SuperBook because he seeks his seventh win at Richmond. Busch has finished in the top 10 in every race this season and owns a series-best 6.9 average finish at the Richmond. Busch has finished first and second at New Hampshire and won and led a 177 laps.

Richmond rules package, recent results

Teams will utilize the 2019 rules package tailored for quick tracks (less than 1.33 miles) and street courses. A 1.17-inch tapered spacer will be used as it was earlier this season at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Bristol, with motors expected to generate roughly 750 horsepower. When handicapping the 400-lap race of Saturday, results in Phoenix should be bettors’ priority before exploring the outcomes of last year from Richmond and New Hampshire, because packages were used.

Pole-sitter Ryan Blaney (94) and Aric Almirola (26) also led laps in Phoenix in March, as did Denny Hamlin (7), Jimmie Johnson (4), and Daniel Hemric (4). Busch won Stage 1 and Blaney won Stage 2, and the duo was joined by Martin Truex Jr. (moment ), Almirola (third), and Hamlin (fifth) in the top five at the checkered flag.

Recent results: New Hampshire | Richmond | Phoenix

Entering Saturday’s race, short tracks of Martinsville and Bristol have been dominated by Team Penske drivers Blaney, Brad Keselowski, and Joey Logano. The trio has directed 795 of the laps this season, thanks to Keselowski’s 486 circuits led.
