Tennessee Lottery 250 Picks
After a week off, the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads for Nashville Superspeedway for Saturday’s Tennessee Lottery 250, the 15th race on the schedule.
We hope to continue our roll in Music City—we gave you AJ Allmendinger as the winner of the debut race in Portland two weeks ago, and he came through despite starting in at the rear of the field.
The Nashville event will be contested over 188 laps (250.04 miles) on the 1.33-mile concrete oval, with stage breaks scheduled after 45 and 90 laps.
NASCAR Cup Series superstar Kyle Busch won last year’s race, but he is not competing in the Xfinity Series this season.
Tyler Reddick (+700 at DraftKings)

Tennessee Lottery 250 Predictions
Tyler Reddick Is an Undervalued Commodity on a Track That Should Suit Him
Full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver Tyler Reddick has raced two times this year in the No. 48 Big Machine Racing Chevrolet owned by Scott Borchetta and closely affiliated with Richard Childress Racing.
Reddick won in his second start in the car, at Texas Motor Speedway, and on Saturday, he’ll take the No. 48 Camaro for a spin for the third time this season.
With the concrete Nashville track promising to be hot and slick in the midst of a heat wave in the Southeast, Reddick’s car control should be a major asset. We think he has an excellent shot to win the race, and at +700 via DraftKings, he’s a good value as well.
JR Motorsports Tops the Board, But Which Driver Is Most Likely to Win
Chevrolet drivers have won the last six NASCAR Xfinity Series races and nine of the 14 events so far this season.
JR Motorsports drivers have won three of the last five races in the series, so it’s small wonder Noah Gragson (+450), Josh Berry (+500) and Justin Allgaier (+500) are the top three choices to win Saturday’s Tennessee Lottery 250.
But which of those JR Motorsports drivers is most likely to win? We’re partial to Allgaier, who finished second to Kyle Busch in last year’s race. With Busch out of the picture this year, we like the driver of the No. 7 JRM Chevy.
Allgaier’s most recent victory came at Darlington, a track similar to Nashville in size, if not in configuration.
Double-Duty Driving Should Give Ryan Preece an Edge at Nashville
Last year, in his first-ever race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Ryan Preece triumphed at Nashville Superspeedway.
On Friday night, Preece will defend his victory at the 1.33-mile track. And on Saturday, he’ll drive the No. 5 BJ McLeod Motorsports Ford, a car affiliated with Stewart-Haas Racing.
By the time Saturday’s Xfinity race goes green, Preece will have had practiced, qualified, and raced in the Truck Series, as well as having practiced in the Xfinity car.
The additional seat time should give him an advantage for Saturday’s race. That’s why we think he’s a good bet to win at +1500 via DraftKings Sportsbook and a great choice to finish in the top three at +400.
