LTi Printing 250 Predictions
The NASCAR Xfinity Series drives in the sunlight of Michigan International Speedway this afternoon for the LTi Printing 250. Here’s a look at three drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is the favorite to win, as he is getting odds of +175 to prevail. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (+450), and Christopher Bell (+650). The LTi Printing 250 takes place Saturday at 1:30PM ET from Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan and will air live on FOX.
6400 Kyle Busch +175
Busch has won this race twice in his career, last doing so in 2015. He was having a quiet season in the Xfinity Series, but got his first victory in four tries last week at Pocono. Busch has been in the top 5 of this race the last five years and he should be the man to beat today as well.
6401 Kevin Harvick +450
Harvick and Busch have been dominating the Monster Energy Cup Series and now they take their battle to the Xfinity Series. Harvick has competed in two Xfinity races this year, winning one while finishing 19th in the other. The last time he competed in this race was 2015, when he finished sixth. Michigan has been a pretty good track for Harvick in the Cup Series, so I expect him to have a great run on Saturday.
6403 Paul Menard +800
Menard is a former winner of this race, taking the checkered flag in 2014. Menard has finished third in this race twice as well. He is not a regular in the Xfinity Series, but he made his 2018 debut last week at Pocono, finishing eighth. Pocono hasn’t been his best track and he still was competitive. I expect him to perform even better on Saturday.
