For first time this year, NASCAR will probably be under the lights if the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 gets underway at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday in Richmond Raceway. Kyle Busch enters 2019 NASCAR in Richmond as the pioneer at the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup standings with 361 points. He is looking for his fourth win of the year along with also the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances give him a 9-4 opportunity to receive it starts in fifth position after qualifying. Kevin Harvick had the fastest pace in qualifying at 124.29 MPH, giving him the pole position. His NASCAR at Richmond chances have moved out of 7-1 to 9-2. Martin Truex Jr. (6-1), Joey Logano (8-1) and Brad Keselowski (10-1) are one of the other top contenders in this .75-mile brief track. Before locking in any 2019 Toyota Owners 400 picks of your own, first make certain to check out the NASCAR predictions in the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Developed by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track record and current results into consideration.
The model is off to a solid start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four competition from the beginning. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers in the Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano at its projected top . It also nailed Busch’s enormous win at Bristol last week. Anyone who has followed its picks is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic venues like Richmond Raceway have been in his blood. His model mimicked the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For NASCAR in Richmond 2019, we can tell you the model is top on Kyle Larson, who makes a strong run at taking the checkered flag despite going off at 25-1 NASCAR in Richmond chances.
Larson’s average finish at Richmond is 9.7, which is that the third-best among active drivers. He’s finished seventh or better in four of the last five events in Richmond and won the Richmond autumn race in 2017. He will begin in 14th place after a slightly slower than anticipated qualifying time of 123.54 MPH. But he posted the quickest lap (121.70 MPH) at the first practice session on Friday, so he’s revealed the speed needed to climb the NASCAR at Richmond leaderboard on Saturday evening.
Along with a huge shocker: Truex Jr., one of the best Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t even crack the top five. There are far better worth in a wealthy 2019 NASCAR in Richmond lineup.
The 39-year-old veteran is sitting in the standings, but he’s tapered off recently. Truex finished 12th at Texas Motor Speedway after which fought last week at Bristol, finishing 17th. In his profession, Truex hasn’t fared very well at Richmond Raceway either. In reality, he’s finished in the top five only 3 times in 26 career starts at the monitor.
The version can also be targeting two other drivers with 2019 Toyota Owners 400 odds of 20-1 or even longer to make a serious run at winning everything. Anybody who backs these lengthy shots could hit it big.
