For the first time this year, NASCAR will be under the lights when the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 gets underway at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Richmond Raceway. Kyle Busch enters 2019 NASCAR in Richmond as the pioneer in the NASCAR Dragon Energy Cup standings with 361 points. He’s looking for his fourth win of the year and also the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances provide him a 9-4 chance to get it as he starts in fifth place after qualifying. Kevin Harvick had the quickest pace in qualifying at 124.29 MPH, providing him the pole position. His NASCAR in Richmond chances have moved from 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 short course. Before locking in any 2019 Toyota Owners 400 selections of your own, first make certain to have a look at the NASCAR predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Developed by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track history and recent results into consideration.
The version is off to a strong start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four contender from the beginning. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers in the Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano in its projected top five. Additionally, it nailed Busch’s enormous win at Bristol a week. Anyone who has followed its picks is far up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic venues like Richmond Raceway are in his bloodstream. His version mimicked the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For NASCAR at Richmond 2019, we could inform you the version is high on Kyle Larson, who makes a solid run at taking the checkered flag despite going off at 25-1 NASCAR at Richmond chances.
Larson’s average finish at Richmond is 9.7, that’s the third-best among active drivers. He’s finished seventh or better in four of the last five events at Richmond and won the Richmond autumn race in 2017. He will start in 14th place after a marginally slower than anticipated qualifying period of 123.54 MPH. However he posted the fastest lap (121.70 MPH) in the first practice session on Friday, so he has shown the rate required to climb the NASCAR at Richmond leaderboard on Saturday evening.
And a massive shocker: Truex Jr., among the top Vegas favorites at 6-1, doesn’t crack the top five. There are far better values in a loaded 2019 NASCAR at Richmond lineup.
The 39-year-old veteran is sitting at seventh in the standings, but he is tapered off lately. Truex finished 12th at Texas Motor Speedway and then struggled last week in Bristol, finishing 17th. In his career, 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 is also targeting two additional drivers using 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances of 20-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning everything. Anybody who backs these lengthy shots can hit it big.
