Favorites to Win the 2019 Camping World 300
Justin Allgaier is the only Xfinity Series regular in 2019 to have won at Chicagoland Speedway.
The JR Motorsports driver is, in fact, a two-time winner at his home track.
His first one came in 2011, which happened to be only his second career win overall.
Allgaier returned to victory lane at Chicago in 2017.
The JR Motorsports driver has always done well at the 1.5 mile oval.
He has never missed out on the top 10 in nine career Xfinity Series starts.
His record includes two wins, four top 5 and nine top 10 finishes.
After scoring a career-high five wins in 2018, Allgaier is still looking for his first win of 2019.
He currently sits fourth in points with seven top 5 and eight top 10 finishes in 14 starts.
Christopher Bell is fresh off his series-leading fourth win of the season.
The Joe Gibbs driver came out on top of a race-long fight against Cole Custer.
Bell led the most laps and won both stages at Iowa on the way to his victory.
He only has one start in the Xfinity Series at Chicagoland Speedway, a 12th place finish last season.
Bell has two top 5 finishes in two Truck Series starts at the track.
He is second in points this season with four wins, eight top 5 and nine top 10 in 14 starts.
Tyler Reddick will be looking to bounce back at Chicago.
The reigning champion is coming off his worst result of the season at Iowa.
A flat tire early on in the race sent him to the back of the field, two laps back.
Reddick still fought back to finish 15th, but clearly had enough pace for a better result.
He only has one start at the track in the Xfinity Series, scoring a DNF last season.
However, the Richard Childress driver scored top top 5 and three top 10 in three Truck Series starts at Chicago.
Reddick has been in great form this season.
He leads the points with three wins, an impressive 11 top 5 and 12 top 10 finishes in 14 starts.
Outside Picks for the 2019 Camping World 300
Cole Custer has a good record at Chicagoland in his career.
The Stewart-Haas driver is one of the most experienced at the track among series regulars.
He has one top 5 and two top 10 in two Xfinity Serie starts, with a ninth place in his only Truck Series start.
Custer is currently third in points with three wins, eight top 5 and nine top 10 in 14 starts.
Teammate Chase Briscoe is also another solid outside pick.
Briscoe has two top 5 and has never missed out on the top 10 in three starts at Chicago.
The Xfinity rookie won at the track in 2016 on his way to the ARCA title.
He then scored a runner-up finish in the Truck Series the following year.
In 2018, Briscoe finished seventh, now in the Xfinity Series.
The Stewart-Haas has been incredibly consistent this season.
He sits sixth in points with five top 5 and 11 top 10 finishes in 14 starts.
Briscoe has only missed out on the top 10 once in the last 12 races.
John Hunter Nemechek also has a good career record at Chicago.
His first NASCAR win came at Chicago in the Truck Series in 2015.
It was also his first start at the track.
Hunter Nemechek scored two seventh place finishes in the next three starts, leading the most laps last year.
He did not take race at Chicago in the Xfinity Series during his debut season in 2018.
