Certainly, there are few things more difficult than winning a NASCAR race. Initially last Friday Justin Haley experience the exhilaration of victory. The outcome of the Firecracker 250 appeared to be his. However, his bold inside move took him inside the yellow boundary line. Accordingly, he was stripped of his win. Those holding NASCAR betting tickets on Kyle Larson were wise not to shred them. The end result showed Larson as the winner of the race. The reverse of the original result was a bitter lesson for Haley. And another victory for a NASCAR Cup Series crossover driver.

Alsco 300 TV Coverage: NBCSN
Friday the Xfinity Series heads to Kentucky Speedway. Which has emerged as one of the most popular tracks on the schedule. Kentucky Speedway opened in 2000. Presently it holds over 85,000 race fans. Track length is 1.5 miles on a tri oval asphalt configuration. Additionally, turn banks are 17 degrees in one and two. With 14 degree turn banks in three and four. The tri oval turn bank is eight to ten degrees. One Xfinity race is annually run there each year.
Recent Title History
Since 2001 the Alsco 300 has been run under various title sponsors. Kyle Busch has won the past two years. Brad Keselowski took the checkers in 2015 and 2013. With Kevin Harvick sandwiched as the 2014 champion. Joey Logano, Keselowski and Bush each have three NASCAR betting wins in this event. Of great concern to regular Xfinity Series drivers is the likelihood of MENCS crossover drivers.
Kyle Busch is the NASCAR Cup standings leader. Most important of all for this race he’s crossing over. Paul Menard is also coming over from Cup.
Regardless the Xfinity Series race is wide open. In sum its been a back and forth sportsbook affair. Elliott Sadler is back atop the standings. He finished second last week at Daytona. Which remains an elusive track for him. For example, he was also second in the February Daytona race. Nobody is more consistent than Sadler. Yet he last won a race all the way back in 2016. By reason of regular top ten runs is why he tops the standings.
Daniel Hemric is in second place. Along the same lines as Sadler he is yet to win a race. Likewise, the Hemric blueprint is utter consistency. He has cracked the top ten in 12 out of 16 Xfinity races this year. He is still in search of his first career win.
Additionally, winless is third place Cole Custer. Last week was a rare bad run for him. Despite the fact he finished 25th he remains a bona fide contender. Custer also has 12 top ten runs in his 16 Xfinity races for the season.
Fourth place Christopher Bell has posted one win on the season. Bell drove into Victory Lane at Richmond. Yet he also emulates the consistency of the top three. He is the top rookie so far in 2018.
Following Bell in the rookie class is Tyler Reddick. Since his February win at Daytona he has been up and down. Despite some bad runs Reddick is in sixth place.
Driver to Watch
Daniel Hemric has posted seven straight finishes of eight place or better. In conclusion, he is the top NASCAR betting choice at Kentucky! While Kyle Busch is the huge chalk he offers no value. Accordingly, his price is too high.
