What'll Happen This Weekend


Lets take a look and see what to watch under the Saturay night lights of the TOYOTA OWNERS 400


Who are the drivers to watch under the lights on Saturday for the TOYOTA OWNERS 400? Well, just take a look and see:


Kevin Harvick: The defending Sprint Cup Champion hasn’t slowed down since Phoenix of last season, and while he only has two wins this season, he has been in the conversation every single week, leading laps and being a contender. Here in Richmond, he is just as stout, with three wins, eight Top-5s and 17 Top-10s in 28 races. His average finish is 11th.

Denny Hamlin: Joe Gibbs Racing has won both short track races thus far this season (Hamlin at Martinsville, and Matt Kenseth at Bristol), so looking to the JGR camp for success at RIR would be certainly warranted. Hamlin, the former Chesterfield resident, has two wins at his home track, as well as two poles, seven Top-5s and nine Top-10s in 17 starts. His average finish is 10.4. The No. 11 Toyota is a pretty good bet to ride into Victory Lane.

Team Penske: Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano swept the RIR races last season and will look to continue their dominance this year. The wins were both drivers’ first win at RIR, while Logano has three Top-5s to Keselowski’s two, and both have four Top-10s. Keselowski and Logano have been strong once again this season, and Ford has won the last three races at RIR.


Carl Edwards: While Edwards is with the team that has won the two short track races this season, his No. 19 Toyota hasn’t performed as well as his teammates. He finished 17th at Martinsville and 24th at Bristol. But, his stats at Richmond are stout: one win, four Top-5s and 11 Top-10s with an average finish of 13.9. RIR could be the breakout race for Edwards and his new team.

The Pick: Hamlin. He’s motivated to get back to his home track and get another win this season. As long as he’s healthy and past the spasms last week at Bristol, he’s the one to beat at Richmond.
