Toyota Owners 400 Predictions
The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series drives under the lights on Saturday for the running of the Toyota Owners 400. Here are three drivers we like to contend for the victory tonight.
According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Kyle Busch is the favorite in this race, as he is getting 7/2 odds to win. Other short odds to prevail are Kevin Harvick (9/2), Denny Hamlin (5/1) and Martin Truex Jr. (5/1). The Toyota Owners takes place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 6:30PM ET from Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. The race will air live on FOX.
98014 Kyle Busch 7/2
It’s hard to avoid Kyle Busch for this race tonight. Busch is a 4-time winner of this race, with the last victory coming in 2012. Overall, he is a four-time winner at Richmond and has an average finish of 7.4 at the track. His driver rating there is 109.7, which is the best in tonight’s field. Busch has won the last two races in the series and has finished in the top 3 in six straight. Busch seems to be shaping up for another top finish today.
98003 Kevin Harvick 9/2
Like Busch, Kevin Harvick is hard to pass up tonight due to his great numbers at Richmond. Harvick won this race in 2013 and he has managed three wins at Richmond over his career. His average finish at this track is 8.423 while his driver rating at Richmond is 109.6, which ranks second only to Busch in this field. Harvick has three wins this year and has finished in the top 7 in six of his last seven races. Expect him to push Busch for the victory tonight.
98018 Joey Logano 10/1
Joey Logano is someone I like who isn’t quite in the short favorites mix. He has won multiple times at Richmond in his career and has a top-10 driver rating in today’s field of 88.2. His average finish of 18 races is 11.9, so he usually drives quite well here. Logano has been quite consistent this year as well, finishing in the top 10 in all but one race. That sort of consistency will eventually lead to wins and I think that can come tonight.
