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

Brad Keselowski made his third successive win Sunday in the opening playoff race in Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth straight win seems unlikely as NASCAR heads to Richmond’s short track for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400.
Richmond is a flat, 3/4-mile track that’s quite like New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s flat tracks. Drivers who have had success at those tracks have been contenders at Richmond.
NASCAR visited Phoenix and New Hampshire after each earlier in the season. In the desert, Kevin Harvick took the checkers, but Kyle Busch led the most laps. Harvick also won New Hampshire, but it was Kurt Busch leading the most laps.
MORE: Upgraded NASCAR title odds Keselowski completed 15th and 32nd at Phoenix and New Hampshire this year, but he’s finished 11th or better in the last six races in Richmond. A top-10 appears likely for the No. 2 team, but there are drivers more healthy for the short-track racing on Saturday.
