Alsco Uniforms Xfinity

For the second straight week, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will race on a 1.5-mile intermediate speedway, but this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, drivers will have to negotiate 50 more miles than they did last week at Texas.

Saturday’s Alsco Uniforms 300 will be contested over 200 laps (300 miles), with stage breaks scheduled after 45 and 90 laps. Ty Gibbs is the defending winner of this event.

Sam Mayer Will Lead the JR Motorsports Armada to Green Flag at Charlotte

JR Motorsports is on a record-breaking roll. Collectively, drivers for the team co-owned by NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Jr. have won eight straight race stages—two each in the last four events—and that’s a record for consecutive stage wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Three of the four full-time JRM drivers have won races this season—Noah Gragson, Justin Allgaier and Josh Berry. The exception is Sam Mayer, who took a giant step toward his maiden Xfinity victory on Friday.

Mayer won the pole position during time trials, turning a lap in 30.018 seconds (179.892 mph), more than two-tenths of a second faster than teammate Allgaier.

Nevertheless, oddsmakers favor both Allgaier (+400 DraftKings) and Gragson (+450) over their 18-year-old stablemate. We disagree.

We think it’s Mayer’s week to win, and we like the price at +800 via DraftKings. In the last 15 Xfinity races at Charlotte, 11 winners have come from the top three starting spots, four from the pole.

Historically, Ryan Preece Has Made the Most of Part-Time Opportunities

To gain recognition, Ryan Preece made a big bet on himself. In 2017, Preece’s self-financed four Xfinity Series starts with Joe Gibbs Racing.

He won his second race with the organization, at Iowa Speedway, and finished in the top five in the other three. That performance put Preece on the map.

This weekend, Preece is doing triple duty, racing at Charlotte in the Camping World Truck Series, Xfinity Series and Cup Series. We think he’ll be an Xfinity contender in his No. 5 BJ McLeod Motorsports Ford (in partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing).

Sure enough, Preece qualified third on Friday afternoon, but oddsmakers have him at +1200 (DraftKings). That’s not a bad bet, but we like him to finish in the top three even more. That bet will pay +300.

Overlooked Austin Dillon May Be the Best Betting Opportunity at Charlotte

Are you kidding me? Austin Dillon is entered in his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race of the season, and he’s driving the car Tyler Reddick drove to victory last Saturday at Texas. And he’s a long shot this week?!

Dillon’s No. 48 Big Machine Racing Chevrolet operates under an alliance with Richard Childress Racing, owned by Dillon’s grandfather. So you know Dillon will get the best of the best for his run at Charlotte.

Consider also that seven of Dillon’s nine career Xfinity Series wins have come during part-time seasons after he advanced to the Cup Series. It was at Charlotte Motor Speedway that Dillon scored his first Cup victory in the 2017 Coca-Cola 600.

We’re all over Dillon to win at +1500 (DraftKings) and +400 to finish top-three. Place your bets and say “Thank you.”

One quick note: Defending race winner Ty Gibbs scraped the wall during Friday’s practice and did not make a qualifying run. Though he’s still the oddsmaker’s third choice at +500 (DraftKings), we question his ability win form the rear of the field in a repaired car.
