The NASCAR Xfinity Series gets the racing weekend started on Saturday with the running of the Drive for the Cure 300. Here’s a look at the odds for this race.

Blaney is coming off a win in the last race at Dover, his second of the 2017 season. His other win was the first race at Charlotte. Blaney has been very strong in most of his races this year, finishing first or second in seven of the nine races he’s been in.
Jones is seeking the first win of his career. He has competed in every race this season, but has just four top-5 finishes. In the first race at Charlotte this year, Jones placed seventh.
Suarez won three races last year, but is looking for his first win of 2017 while driving in a limited schedule. He has five top-5 finishes this year. Suarez placed third in this race a year ago and fourth in 2015.
Byron is in his first year with the Xfinity Series. He has managed to pick up three wins in the 2017 season, but has not won in his last 10 races. Byron finished 14th at the race in Charlotte earlier this season.
