Federated Auto Parts 400 Picks
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drives under the lights tonight for the Federated Auto Parts 400. Here are some picks we have for this race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kevin Harvick is the favorite tonight, as he has 5/1 odds. Other short odds to prevail are Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch each have 6/1 odds. The Federated Auto Parts 400 takes place tonight at 7:43PM ET from Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, VA.
Kevin Harvick comes to one of his best tracks tonight. He is a three-time winner at Richmond and his average finish is 10.6. His driver rating here is 110.6. Harvick can use another win to climb up the Chase rankings with things kicking off next week. Look for him to push for the win tonight.
Kyle Busch is also tremendous at this track. He has four wins at Richmond and the top driver rating in this field at 111.1. Busch can cement his spot in first place to begin the Chase if he gets another win tonight, so expect a strong run from him.
If you are looking for a dark horse, Ryan Newman is worth considering. He has 40/1 odds to win tonight, but comes into this race in a must-win situation. He is on the outside looking in for the Chase and likely needs a win to get into the postseason. It’s possible at Richmond, as he is a former winner here and his average finish is a solid 11.7. His driver rating at this track is 90.5, which ranks 10th in the field. Newman definitely has value at 40/1.
