The NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers keep lucking out on weather. While the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers keep having weather delays for cold temperatures and snow, the XFINITY Series races have run without hesitation or interruption.
Friday night’s Toyota Care 250 (7 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) will be the second leg of the Dash 4 Cash. With that being said, the favorites are wide open again. That’s due to no Cup drivers being on the entry list.
Here are the top five favorites.
This is his weekend. Allgaier, finished runner-up last weekend in Bristol for his third top two finish in his last four series starts. He has five top sixes in his last six races on the year too. Plus, Allgaier led 157 laps and finished second in this very race in 2017. He was eighth in the fall race last year and fifth in 2017.
He was fast on Friday morning too, being sixth and second respectively in practice.
Watch out for the No. 7 Chevrolet on Friday night.
Talk about a driver that’s due. Sadler, hasn’t been to victory lane in 46 races. But, that could end in his homestate of Virginia this weekend. Sadler, hasn’t finished outside the top seven in his last four Richmond starts. Furthermore, he has eight top eight finishes in his last 10 Richmond races too. He hasn’t finished worse than ninth all year in his No. 1 Chevrolet.
It’s his time.
This may be his week to win. Hemric, is making his Cup debut and has a ton of momentum on his side. He also started on the pole in this very race last year and led 26 laps en route to a third place finish. He led 13 more laps in the fall and finished fourth. On top of all of that, he has four straight top six finishes on the season, including finishes of sixth, sixth, fifth, third and third respectively.
He was eighth in final practice on Friday morning.
His No. 21 Chevrolet is definitely a favorite.
He should have won last weekend. Instead, he was in a crash not of his doing. But, Bell has four top four finishes in his last six series starts, two of which were runner-ups. He was sixth in his lone Richmond start last year and should contend under the lights this weekend.
He was first and fourth respectively in the two practices on Friday morning.
He’s due for another win. He enters Richmond with five straight top 10 finishes in his No. 00 Ford. In practice, he was in the top five in each session, being second and fifth respectively.
