For the first time this season, NASCAR will probably be under the lights if 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 Monster Energy Cup standings with 361 points. He is looking for his fourth win of this year and the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 odds provide him a 9-4 opportunity to receive 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 odds have moved out of 7-1 to 9-2. Martin Truex Jr. (6-1), Joey Logano (8-1) and Brad Keselowski (10-1) are among the other leading contenders in this .75-mile short course. Before bending in any 2019 Toyota Owners 400 selections of your own, first be sure to have a look at the NASCAR predictions from the proven computer version at SportsLine.
Produced by DFS pro and SportsLine predictive data scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors such as track history and current results into consideration.
The model is off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four competition from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers at the Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano at its projected top five. Additionally, it nailed Busch’s huge win at Bristol a week. Anybody who has followed its selections is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic places like Richmond Raceway are in his blood. His model mimicked the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For NASCAR at Richmond 2019, we could inform you that the version is high 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 his last five events at Richmond and won the Richmond fall race at 2017. He will begin in 14th place after a slightly slower than anticipated qualifying period of 123.54 MPH. But he posted the fastest lap (121.70 MPH) at the first practice session on Friday, so he’s revealed the rate required to climb the NASCAR at Richmond leaderboard on Saturday evening.
And a massive shocker: Truex Jr., one of the best Vegas favorites at 6-1, does not crack the top five. There are far better worth in a loaded 2019 NASCAR at Richmond lineup.
The 39-year-old veteran is sitting at seventh in the standings, but he’s tapered off recently. Truex finished 12th in Texas Motor Speedway and then struggled last week in Bristol, ending 17th. In his career, Truex has not fared very well at Richmond Raceway either. In fact, he has finished in the top five just three times in 26 career starts at the track.
The version is also targeting two additional drivers using 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances of 20-1 or even more time to make a serious run at winning everything. Anyone who backs these long shots can hit it big.
