Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 Predictions
The NASCAR Xfinity Series get the racing weekend started on Saturday afternoon with the running of the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300. Here are three drivers that we think should contend for the victory in this race.
According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Christopher Bell is the favorite in this race, as he is listed with 3/1 odds to win. Other short odds to prevail at Justin Allgaier (4/1), Cole Custer (13/2) and John Hunter Nemecheck (13/2). The Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 takes place from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee at 1PM ET and will air live on FS1.
96001 Justin Allgaier 4/1
Justin Allgaier won this race back in 2010 and he also earned a top-5 finish back in 2016. This year, Allgaier is still searching for his first victory, but he has finished runner-up two times. A two-time winner in the series last year, Allgaier is someone that has worked his way to the front many times and his experience at Bristol should help him against someone like Bell, who is making his first Xfinity Series start at the track.
96002 Cole Custer 13/2
Custer didn’t have a great first run at Bristol last year, finishing in 32nd place. However, he did bounce back to finish 10th in the fall race. This year, Custer started slow, but has been progressing. Over his last four races, he has improved his finish each time. He started with a ninth-place finish and then worked down to eighth, sixth and fourth. Should his momentum continue, he is line to earn his second win in the series.
96004 Elliott Sadler 8/1
Sadler is a former champion of this race, grabbing the victory in 2012. He also finished fourth in last year’s race. This season, Sadler has been very competitive. While he has yet to win, he has finished in the top 10 in all six races and in the top 5 in four of them. I like Sadler’s consistency to stay near the front of the pack. With a little luck, or some good pit stops, it can propel him to a win on Saturday.
