NASCAR at Richmond odds, key stats, bets to consider: Handicap Toyota Owners 400 with similar race tracks

Following an exciting race at Tennessee, NASCAR heads to Richmond Raceway Saturday night (6 p.m. CT, FOX) to the next short-track race that the Cup Series season.

Richmond, the website of this Toyota Owners 400, is 0.25 miles longer than Bristol and Martinsville, but NASCAR still categorizes it as a short track. It is really most similar in banking to New Hampshire and Phoenix’s track and it’s no surprise drivers who have had success.

Kyle Busch, who won Sunday’s race at Bristol as the race-favorite, once more has the shortest odds (2/1) on the plank at the Westgate SuperBook as he seeks his seventh win at Richmond. Busch has finished in the top 10 in every race this season and owns a series-best 6.9 average finish at the Richmond.

Teams will use the 2019 rules package tailored for short tracks (less than 1.33 miles) and road courses. A 1.17-inch tapered spacer will be used as it had been earlier this year at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Bristol, with motors expected to generate about 750 horsepower. When handicapping the 400-lap race of Saturday, results from Phoenix should be bettors’ priority before exploring last year’s outcomes from New Hampshire and Richmond, because different packages were used.

Pole-sitter Ryan Blaney (94) and Aric Almirola (26) also led laps at Phoenix in March, as did Denny Hamlin (7), Jimmie Johnson (4), and Daniel Hemric (4). Busch won Stage 1 and Blaney won Stage 2, and the duo was joined by Martin Truex Jr. (moment ), Almirola (third), and Hamlin (fifth) at the top five at the checkered flag.
