Alsco 300 Picks
A stacked field is set for the NASCAR Xfinity Series race tonight, the Alsco 300. Here are three drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kyle Busch is favored to win this race, as he has 2/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Joey Logano (7/2), Kevin Harvick (4/1) and Ryan Blaney (6/1). The Alsco 300 takes place tonight at 8PM ET from Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky.
Kyle Busch is always the driver to beat when he competes in the Xfinity Series. He is a two-time winner of this very event and the defending champion. Busch has competed in this series four times this year, producing a win and three top-5 finishes. That is actually somewhat sub-par for Busch. Just a year ago, he had 10 wins in this series. He should get back on track tonight.
Kevin Harvick was the 2014 winner of this race and he has ran well in the Xfinity Series this year. Harvick has competed in three races and placed in the top-4 in all three of them. His finishes are getting progressively better, including a runner-up finish in Charlotte. That would put him on track for a win tonight.
Ryan Blaney has arguably been the best driver in the Xfinity Series this year. He has one win this year with four runner-up finishes. He has not finished out the top-5 in any of the races he has competed in this year. I expect Blaney to have another strong run again tonight and push Busch for the victory.
