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

Following an exciting race in Tennessee, NASCAR heads to Richmond Raceway Saturday night (6 rebounds CT, FOX) for the third short-track race the Cup Series season.

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

Kyle Busch, who won Sunday’s race in Bristol since the race-favorite, once more has the shortest odds (2/1) on the plank in the Westgate SuperBook because he seeks his seventh win in Richmond. Busch has finished in the top 10 in each race this year and owns a series-best 6.9 average end in the Richmond. Busch has finished first and second at New Hampshire and won and directed a race-high 177 laps in Phoenix layout in March.

Richmond rules package

Teams will utilize the 2019 rules bundle tailored for short paths (less than 1.33 miles) and road classes. A 1.17-inch tapered spacer is going to be used as it was earlier this year at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Bristol, with motors expected to create roughly 750 horsepower. When handicapping Saturday’s 400-lap race, results in Phoenix should be bettors’ priority before exploring the results of last year from Richmond and New Hampshire, since packages were utilized.

Pole-sitter Ryan Blaney (94) and Aric Almirola (26) also led laps at 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) at the top five at the checkered flag.
