Duplicate threads for this race.

I'll repeat my post here in case some are reading this and not the other:


Chase Elliott was 2nd in both of these last year. 5th in Richmond 1 this year.

Anyone think he has a shot over the Cup drivers?

Jay? Others?

(I know Mike thinks no. May be right - I blew off money on Chase and Sadler last week).

Answering my own question - I've looked at his performance this year in Xfinity at Richmond 1 and similar tracks.
He ran 5-9th range, and his average position during those races was 6th - 9th, so he never challenged.
So I'm passing.

Hey u know well 420

 :cheers

I would say no.  It's not all just cause CUP guys  because it's really just 22 and 54 and maybe Dillon. Not Sure what it is but that team overall hasn't challenged up front much at all this season like he did last year

I'm sure in parlaying Kyle and Logano for sure and a h2h.   If they have enough h2h offers this week lets hope.  Not sure about single those would be odd dependant on raceday

You are on target Octane. It's more of a JR Motorsports issue for me right now. Those cars have not been good. If you listened last week, Harvick said it was nice to see the cars competitive again after a few weeks of struggling. I still do not think they are quite there yet either

Yeh I already had that in my preview I was working on which is posted now.

Not going to lie guys, I absolutely hate the H2H's that are posted. It is going to be a low risk night for me. I got R. Smith -140 over Suarez for a 1 unit play. Everything else will be posted for the futures later. Hate it when H2H's look like this
