Many of you may remember it known as the Richmond International Raceway. This is a 3/4-mile track, which will see 300 tough miles raced. It is also seen as the premier short track in America.
Let’s take a look at the some of the drivers with the best betting odds in our Federated Auto Parts Betting Preview for the 2020 event:
Martin Truex Jr. +300
This is a driver who has to be steaming over what happened Sunday in Darlington. This is one he would like to have back. Ranked sixth on the circuit, Truex Jr. is still looking for his second win of the season.
Despite that, he has had a nice season finishing inside the top five 11 times. Truex Jr., with his 22nd-place finish last weekend, snapped a streak of four straight races with a top-five finish, including back-to-back second-place finishes. Look for this Joe Gibbs Racing team driver to be there when push comes to shove.
Kyle Busch +450
The 35-year-old from Vegas is 10th in points with 2,040. Busch has yet to win a race this season but is coming off a seventh-place finish.
Busch seems to be okay just doing well, but not great. Will that change as he tries to get “on the scoreboard” for the first time in 2020?
This is a track that could suit his style. Look for Busch to be in contention from start to finish in Richmond.
Brad Keselowski +750
Team Penske’s Keselowski will see his Discount Tire No. 2 car aim to move up from his spot in fourth in the points. Keselowski is always a threat to win a race, especially one that comes with such high stakes.
He is coming off a finish of 11th, his second straight outside the Top 10. He has three wins and 19 times he has finished inside the Top 10. The 36-year-old from Michigan is a major threat.
Chase Elliott +900
Part of the Hendrick Motorsports team, Elliott is a primetime driver, with two wins in 2020. Elliott started from the pole at Darlington but finished with a frustrating 20th.
Elliott is listed at +900 to win.
Others in Consideration
Joey Logano +1100
The 30-year-old from Pennsylvania is third in the points standings behind Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin. Logano has two wins.
At +1100 odds, there aren’t many expecting big things but do not be surprised if Logano is picking up his eighth top-five finish.
Kurt Busch +2500
The No. 1 car is certainly an underdog. But, we have seen underdogs win big races before. Busch, a 42-year-old from Vegas, is just outside the Top 10 in points.
This is another guy that has not won a race and is overdue. He is listed at +2500 to win at Richmond.
Who will join Harvick in the second round with a win in Richmond? No matter who takes it down, we expect this to be a great race, with many lead changes and exciting moments.
Enjoy the race, and we hope we help you take down a few wagers on the Federated Auto Parts 400!
