The Johnsonville 180 has been run under various names since 2010. Correlate to this year’s format of the stages. Initially the first two stages are 10 laps each followed by a final stage of 25 laps. To summarized the distance ends up as 182.16 miles. Subsequently this 4.048-mile asphalt surface is comprised of 14 turns. Road America was opened in 1955 and also hosts numerous races including the IndyCar Series. Last year Jeremy Clements was the betting on NASCAR winner of this event.
Extending his success is rookie Christopher Bell. As has been noted the rookie has been the sensation of the Xfinity Series. Above all he currently leads the standings. Bell has posted four online betting wins this season. Additionally, he finished second last week at Bristol. So far, he has finished decent at the two previous road courses in 2018. Bell placed ninth at Watkins Glen and 11th at Mid-Ohio. Further he was in the hunt for the win at Mid-Ohio before getting clipped by Elliott Sadler. In particular Bell has specifically trained for road courses to expand his ability.
Speaking of Sadler, he has announced his retirement after the end of this season. Though this may be true keep in mind he was regular season champion last year. Balanced against that is the fact he hasn’t actually won a race in two years. To differentiate Sadler focuses on consistent top ten finishes. For all that he is third in the standings.
Justin Allgaier could be a popular choice for Road America on Saturday. For example, he won at Mid-Ohio and finished third at Watkins Glen. Also, he has posted three wins on the season. Following his third-place finish last week he is second in the standings.
Cole Custer and Daniel Hemric
Cole Custer and Daniel Hemric round out the top five of the Xfinity Standings. Concurrently with Sadler they haven’t won a race but are very consistent. To be exact they too focus on top ten runs in every race. In view of no MENCS drivers running this week they figure to be in the hunt. Following last week Custer has finished in the top ten six straight races.
Matchup to Watch
Mobile betting will allow you to be close to the autoracing action no matter where you are. Certainly, Allgaier and Bell rate as the top betting on NASCAR choices. Of course, the problem with Sadler, Custer and Hemric is that they don’t win races. At the same time Allgaier is great on road courses.
