American Ethanol E15 250 Picks
The NASCAR Xfinity Series drives under the lights tonight for the American Ethanol E15 250. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Elliott Sadler and Justin Allgaier are the co-favorites to win this race, as each is getting 7/2 odds to win. Other short odds are Sam Hornish Jr. (4/1) and William Byron (4/1). The American Ethanol E15 250 takes place tonight at 8:30PM ET from Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.
Sam Hornish Jr. has had great success at this track. He is a two-time winner of this event and the defending champion. He doesn’t often compete in this series, but when he does, he has had great success. He was in four races a year ago and finished no worse than sixth. I like him to grab the win again tonight.
William Byron has been building toward his first Xfinity Series win and I think it could come tonight. The first-year driver has been hovering around the field all season, finishing in the top 10 in seven times. He had his best effort last week when he finished runner-up at Michigan. He had a slow build to a strong Truck Series season in 2016 and I think we are seeing the same now in Xfinity. Look for Byron to make a strong push for the win today.
Cole Custer is a 15/1 longshot today, but I think he has some value to consider. He has placed in the top 10 in his last four races, including a fourth-place finish at Dover. This is his best stretch of the 2017 season, so he has some momentum going into tonight. While he will need a little help or luck, or both, I think he can put himself in position to capitalize if things break his way tonight.
