Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track record and current results into consideration.
The model is off to a strong start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four contender from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers in the Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano at its projected top . It also nailed Busch’s enormous win at Bristol a week. Anyone who has followed its selections is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic venues like Richmond Raceway have been in his bloodstream. Now, his model mimicked the 2019 Toyota Owners 400 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For NASCAR at Richmond 2019we can inform you that the model is high on Kyle Larson, who makes a strong run at taking the checkered flag despite heading off at 25-1 NASCAR in Richmond odds.
Larson’s average finish at Richmond is 9.7, that’s the third-best among active drivers. He’s finished seventh or better in four of his last five events in Richmond and won the Richmond autumn race in 2017. He will begin in 14th place after a marginally slower than expected qualifying period of 123.54 MPH. But he posted the fastest lap (121.70 MPH) at the first practice session on Friday, so he’s revealed the rate needed to scale the NASCAR at Richmond leaderboard on Saturday evening.

The 39-year-old veteran is sitting in the standings, but he’s tapered off recently. Truex finished 12th in Texas Motor Speedway after which struggled last week in Bristol, finishing 17th. In his career, Truex hasn’t fared well at Richmond Raceway either. In fact, he has finished in the top five just three times in 26 career starts at the track.
