For the 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 at Richmond Raceway. Kyle Busch enters 2019 NASCAR in Richmond as the pioneer at the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup standings with 361 points. He’s looking for his fourth win of the year along with also the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances provide him a 9-4 opportunity to receive it as he starts in fifth place after qualifying. Kevin Harvick had the quickest speed in qualifying at 124.29 MPH, providing 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 course. Before locking in any 2019 Toyota Owners 400 selections of your own, first be sure to check out the NASCAR predictions in the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Developed by DFS pro and SportsLine predictive information engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors such as track record and recent results into account.
The model is off to a solid start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin that a top-four competition from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers in the Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano in its projected top five. It also nailed Busch’s enormous win at Bristol a week. Anyone who has followed its picks is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic places like Richmond Raceway have been in his blood. His version simulated the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For NASCAR in Richmond 2019, we could tell you that the model is top on Kyle Larson, making a strong run at taking the checkered flag despite going off at 25-1 NASCAR in Richmond odds.
Larson’s average finish at Richmond is 9.7, which is the third-best among active drivers. He has finished seventh or better in four of his last five events at Richmond and won the Richmond fall race in 2017. He’ll begin in 14th place after a marginally slower than anticipated qualifying period of 123.54 MPH. However he posted the quickest lap (121.70 MPH) in the first practice session on Friday, so he has shown the speed needed to climb the NASCAR at Richmond leaderboard on Saturday evening.
Along with a massive shocker: Truex Jr., one of the top Vegas favorites in 6-1, doesn’t crack the top five. There are far better worth in a wealthy 2019 NASCAR at Richmond lineup.
The 39-year-old veteran is sitting in the standings, but he is tapered off lately. Truex finished 12th at Texas Motor Speedway after which struggled last week in Bristol, finishing 17th. In his profession, Truex has not fared well at Richmond Raceway either. In fact, he has finished in the top five just 3 times in 26 career starts at the monitor.
The model is also targeting two other motorists with 2019 Toyota Owners 400 chances of 20-1 or more time to make a serious run at winning it all. Anybody who backs these lengthy shots can hit it big.
