NASCAR at Richmond: Odds, key stats, bets to consider for second playoff race
Brad Keselowski earned his third successive win Sunday at the opening playoff race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth straight win appears unlikely as NASCAR heads to Richmond’s brief track for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400.
Richmond is a level, 3/4-mile track that is quite similar to New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s apartment monitors. Drivers who’ve had success at those tracks have been contenders at Richmond.
NASCAR visited with Phoenix and New Hampshire after each sooner. In the desert, Kevin Harvick took the checkers, but Kyle Busch led the most laps. Harvick also won at New Hampshire, but it was Kurt Busch leading the most laps.

Keselowski completed 15th and 32nd at Phoenix and New Hampshire this season, but he has finished 11th or better in the last six races in Richmond. A top-10 appears likely for the No. 2 team, but you will find drivers more healthy for its short-track racing on Saturday.
