If you are in New Jersey you can bet on your favorites to win the U.S. Cellular 250 with 888Sport

Christopher Bell

Christopher Bell is the heavy favorite to go back-to-back at Iowa in 2019.

The Joe Gibbs driver is coming off a dominant victory at New Hampshire.

Bell won the last two Xfinity Series races at Iowa.

Earlier this year, #20 led the most laps and won both stages on the way to victory lane.

He has an impressive record at the track, having missed out on the top 5 only twice in seven career starts.

Bell has two wins and a second-place, with one pole in four Xfinity Series starts there.

He is tied for the series’ lead in wins this season with five.

Bell is second in the points standings with 12 top 5 and 13 top 10 finishes in 18 starts.

Cole Custer

Cole Custer was the only driver that came close to challenging Bell in June at Iowa.

The Stewart-Haas driver started that race from the pole, ultimately finishing second.

Custer is coming off a solid showing at New Hampshire, battling against championship rivals Bell and Tyler Reddick.

He is tied with the Joe Gibbs driver for the series’ lead in wins this season with five.

Custer leads all drivers with five pole-positions.

The Stewart-Haas driver is third in points with 11 top 5 and 12 top 10 finishes.

Tyler Reddick

Tyler Reddick finished down in 15th at Iowa in June, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.

The Richard Childress driver suffered an early puncture and dropped two laps behind the leaders.

Due to the lack of cautions, Reddick never managed to come back.

Despite this, he did show plenty of pace, often battling the front-runners to get back in the lead lap.

This race snapped a sequence of ten straight top 5 finishes for the reigning champion.

Reddick once again leads the points, having scored three wins and a series-best 13 top 5 finishes.

He is coming off a solid second-place finish at New Hampshire.

Outside Picks for the 2019 U.S. Cellular 250

Justin Allgaier

Justin Allgaier had one of his best showings in 2019 last time out at New Hampshire.

The JR Motorsports driver fought among the Big Three of Bell, Reddick, and Custer.

Allgaier ultimately scored a solid second-place finish.

The Xfinity Series veteran scored a win at Iowa last year and finished third in the first race this season.

He has yet to win a race in 2019, facing some ups-and-downs over the course of the season.

Even so, Allgaier sits fifth in the standings with nine top 5 and ten top 10 finishes.
