Posted by Derrick Harper on September 20, 2019 in

The NASCAR Monster Energy Series playoffs are underway. After last week’s leg of the Round of 16, this week’s event will take the NASCAR series to Richmond, Virginia, as the Federated Auto Parts 400 will take place at the Richmond International Raceway. After last week’s race at Las Vegas, the driver’s will be scrambling to make sure that they are in a position to qualify for the round of 12, as next week’s race at Dover is the eliminator.

Let’s take a look at some of the NASCAR Betting favorites to take the checkered flag at the Saturday night, prime time Federated Auto Parts 400.

2019 Federated Auto Parts 400 Odds, Preview & Expert Prediction

Martin Truex Jr.

Truex won last weekend’s race at Las Vegas, thus automatically qualifying him for the round of 12. Truex won at Richmond in April, so he will be confident going into Saturday night’s race. He also won both stages of last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400. He has led a large portion of the laps the last four times he has raced at Richmond.

Even though Truex has already qualified for the round of 12, it would be wise for him not to take his foot off the pedal, and try to eliminate other drivers from contention.

Denny Hamlin

Denny has three victories to his credit in races at the Richmond International Raceway. This is Hamlin’s hometown track, so he will also have the crowd in his corner. His last victory at Richmond was in 2016, but since that race, he has finished in the top five in four of the last five races here. Hamlin needs to rebound after last week’s poor showing in Las Vegas.

Kyle Larson

Larson’s last win came at Richmond two years ago. He is currently on an 84 race losing streak. Larson has finished in the top 10 in seven of his last 10 races, so he has solid momentum going into Saturday night’s race. Joey LoganoIn Logano’s last 11 starts at the Richmond Raceway, he has only finished outside of the top 10 one time. Logano swept both stages of this race in 2018. He has raced well this season, and look for him to have a good showing on Saturday.

Kevin Harvick

Harvick races well at Richmond. Even though he doesn’t have a win at the track since 2011, he has finished in the top five in eight of his last 10 races here. Harvick will be near the top and will be a contender for the checkered flag.

Kyle Busch

Busch leads all active drivers with six career victories at the Richmond International Raceway. Two of those victories came in 2018, as he won both races that were held in Richmond. Kyle was disappointed in his performance last weekend, so look for him to make amends here on Saturday night.

Brad Keselowski

Brad enjoys racing at Richmond. In his last 12 starts, he hasn’t finished outside of the top 20. Eight of those finishes were inside the top 10. Keselowski will be looking to cap off his superb 2012 season with a berth in the round of 12.
