Westgate Toyota Owners 400 Odds
Saturday Night Thunder has long been absent as late night entertainment on ESPN. Tonight, however, NASCAR drivers and teams will be under the lights when the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 gets underway at 7:30 p.m. ET at Richmond Raceway. There is not driver in any racing format as focused as NASCAR’s Kyle Busch.
Busch is set to take the green flag tonight in Richmond as the leader in the 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup standings. The younger Busch brother has checks in with 361 points. Furthermore Busch aims to win his fourth race of the year.
Tonight’s short track event is Taylor-made for Busch. And the bookmakers reflect such in their current odds of 2-1, according to the World’s Largest Race and Sportsbook, Westgate of Las Vegas.
Busch qualified in fifth place. Kevin Harvick (7-1) had the fastest speed in qualifying at 124.29 MPH, giving him the pole position. Martin Truex Jr. (7-1), Joey Logano (7-1) and Brad Keselowski (7-1) are clogging the top of the odds chart.
