When it comes to NASCAR, superspeedway races offer an entirely different complexity. The Xfinity Series is no exception.
The legendary Talladega Superspeedway hosts the MoneyLion 300, round eight of the 2019 season.
No previous winners are set to take the green flag, which makes the race even more unpredictable.
Here are the predictions and odds for this weekend’s event.
What: MoneyLion 300
Where: Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, AL
When: Saturday, April 27th at 1:00 PM EST
How: Fox Sports 1 (TV) | Motor Racing Network (Web radio)
A number of recent race wins at Talladega went to Cup Series drivers.
Justin Allgaier leads the active drivers with a career average finish of 10.
He has never won at the track, but his consistency earned six top 10 finishes in ten starts.
The #7 driver has three top 5 and five top 10 finishes this season.
Allgaier is a solid superspeedway contender, with four top 5, including two runner-up finishes, at Daytona.
The JR Motorsports driver finished second at Daytona at the season opener.
Tyler Reddick only has one top 10 finish in two Xfinity Series starts.
However, the reigning champion usually does well at superspeedways.
Reddick won the opener at Daytona last season and finished ninth after starting from the pole this year.
The Richard Childress driver won at Daytona and scored two top 5 finishes at Talladega in the Truck Series.
Early championship favorite Christopher Bell will likely be in the mix.
Bell has only one start at Talladega in the Xfinity Series, scoring a 12th place finish.
The Joe Gibbs driver has a third-place finish at Daytona in the series as his best result at a superspeedway.
The driver of the #20 car also has a runner-up finish in the Truck Series.
Michael Annett won the season opener at Daytona, scoring his first career victory.
The Xfinity Series veteran isn’t exactly a superspeedway specialist, however.
This result marked Annett’s second top 5 finish and fourth top 10 finish at this kind of track.
Given Talladega’s unpredictable nature, however, the JR Motorsports driver could show up as a contender.
Austin Cindric scored his first top 5 finish at a superspeedway in the Xfinity Series earlier this year.
The sophomore racer sits fifth in points with six top 10 and four top 5 finishes through eight rounds.
Cindric also scored one top 5 finish at Talladega in two Truck Series starts.
Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones is a disappointing 12th in the standings.
The driver of the #20 car kicked off the season in strong form, however.
Jones scored a third-place finish at Daytona, his fourth top 10 finish in five years at the opener.
His career-best also came at a superspeedway with a runner-up finish at Talladega last season.
