Following his third win of the season, championship leader Kyle Busch is the early favorite for Richmond. The driver of the #18 car scored a sweep at the short track last season. A six-time winner, Busch leads all active drivers at Richmond.
Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, and Kevin Harvick all have multiple wins at the half-mile oval. Round nine of the 2019 championship should have plenty of strong contenders.
Here are some picks to consider if you want to bet on the race winner.
What: Toyota Owners 400
Where: Richmond Motor Speedway in Richmond, VA
When: Saturday, April 13th at 7:30 PM EST

It’s hard to bet against Kyle Busch right now.
The 2015 Cup Series champion is on a roll.
Busch also has the most race and stage wins this season.
The #18 scored a sweep at Richmond last year.
Joey Logano has the best average finish over the last four races at Richmond.
The reigning Cup series champion has one finish outside the top 10 in the last ten races at the track.
Logano swept the two Richmond races in 2015.
While consistency has been an issue, the #22 has four top 5 finishes and sits third in the standings.
Denny Hamlin has two race wins this season.
The #11 driver had streak of six consecutive top 10 finishes at Richmond interrupted last summer.
A three-time winner at his home track, the #11 is always a strong contender.
He has the second best average finish position over the last four races at Richmond.
Kevin Harvick is right behind Logano and Hamlin with the third best average.
His last win at the track came in 2013, but he has seven top 5 finishes over that span.
Still looking for the first win of the season, Harvick will definitely be among the contenders.
Brad Keselowski has only won once at Richmond.
His form has improved recently, as he holds the sixth best average finish over the past four races.
Keselowski is the only driver other than Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin with two wins this season.
Look for the #2 to try and add a second win at Richmond to his achievements.
Kyle Larson’s most recent victory in the Cup series came at Richmond in 2017.
With four top 10 finishes over the last five races at the track, Larson usually does well there.
The #42 is struggling this season, having scored only two top 10 finishes.
Richmond could present the perfect chance for Larson to end his drought.
Kurt Busch has impressed since moving over to Chip Ganassi Racing.
The 2004 Cup series champion has six top 10 finishes and is ahead of Larson in the standings.
The elder Busch brother scored his best result of the season last weekend, coming home second at Bristol.
Busch is a two-time winner at the track, his most recent triumph coming in 2015.
The driver of the #1 car could score his first win of the season at Richmond.
Clint Bowyer is a two-time winner at Richmond as well.
His recent form at the track hasn’t been particularly great, however.
Bowyer is on a good streak right now, having scored three consecutive top 10 finishes.
Ryan Blaney is an interesting option.
The youngster has a career-high finish of 18th at the short oval.
However, Blaney is one of the most consistent drivers at the moment.
The Team Penske driver has four top 5 finishes over the last five races.
His first win of the season has been knocking at the door.
Maybe this time around Blaney will reverse his fortune at Richmond and walk away with a victory.
