Loudon Clear: NASCAR Weekend Motor Racing Betting Picks

September 21st, 2017 Auto Racing, Sports Betting

The town of Loudon, New Hampshire will host two of three NASCAR motor racing betting events this weekend; the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series ISM Connect 300 and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 175 (the third event being the NASCAR Xfinity Series 300 to be held for the last time at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky). Plenty of action for fans who like racing sports betting.

2017 ISM Connect 300

  • Date: September 24th
  • Venue: New Hampshire Motor Speedway
  • Location: Loudon, New Hampshire, United States
  • Corporate sponsor: ISM Connect
  • Distance: 317.4 miles (510.8 km)
  • Laps: 300 (Stage 1: 75 Stage 2: 75 Stage 3: 150)

On Sunday, in the final stage of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs Round of 16, aka Tales of the Turtles 400, Jamie McMurray and Erik Jones spun allowing Martin Truex Jr. to get out front and pull away from Chase Elliott for his fifth win of the season as well as a ticket to the Round of 12, and a bucketful of slime.

Truex has never won a race in New Hampshire but has finished inside the top 10 in three of the last four editions of the ISM Connect 300, including the last two straight.

Kyle Busch has, in previous years, come pretty close to winning this race, placing 4th in 2007, 5th in 2009, 2nd in 2013, and 3rd in 2016.

2017 UNOH 175

  • Date: September 23rd
  • Venue: New Hampshire Motor Speedway
  • Location: Loudon, New Hampshire, United States
  • Corporate sponsor: University of Northwestern Ohio
  • Distance: 185.15 miles (297.97 km)
  • Laps: 175 (Stage 1: 55 Stage 2: 55 Stage 3: 65)

Christopher Bell, the current Driver standings leader, is also the motor racing betting pick to win the first race of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs. Bell finished, just a couple of weeks ago, out of the top 10 for only the second time this season, at the Chevrolet Silverado 250, but bounced back with a 3rd place finished in 225 on Friday. Bell was the runner-up in the 2016 UNOH 175.

Johnny Sauter finished 10th in last year’s edition of the race but is hot off a win at 225, which was in turn preceded by two straight top 10 finishes.

2017 300 

  • Date: September 23rd
  • Venue: Kentucky Speedway
  • Location: Sparta, Kentucky, United States
  • Corporate sponsor: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  • Distance: 300 mi (480 km)
  • Laps: 200 (Stage 1: 45 Stage 2: 45 Stage 3: 110)

Sam Hornish, driving part-time, won his previous Xfinity race this season, which was the Mid-Ohio Challenge in June, starting from poll and leading 61 of 75 laps. Hornish finished 4th in last year’s 300.

William Byron came in 33rd place at the 300 but held on to the top of the Drivers’ Championship, two points ahead of Justin Allgaier.


Ryan Preece won the US Cellular 250 on July 29th and, a fortnight prior to that, was the runner-up in the Overton’s 200. Thus, even though he placed 30th at the 2016 300, he has been in motor racing betting contention in his rare appearances this season.
