NASCAR at Richmond: Odds, key stats, bets to consider for second playoff race

Brad Keselowski earned his third consecutive win Sunday at the opening playoff race in Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth consecutive win seems unlikely as NASCAR heads to Richmond’s short track for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400.

Richmond is a level, 3/4-mile track that’s most like New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s apartment monitors. Drivers who have had success have been contenders at Richmond.

NASCAR visited Phoenix and New Hampshire after each sooner. In the summer, 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 finished 15th and 32nd in Phoenix and New Hampshire this season, but he’s finished 11th or better in the past six races in Richmond. A top-10 seems likely for the No. 2 team, but there are drivers more fit for its short-track racing on Saturday.
