The NASCAR Xfinity Series is set for an exciting new season.
With the Big Three of Tyler Reddick, Cole Custer, and Christopher Bell moving up to the Cup Series, the title fight is wide open.
This year’s field has an interesting mix of returning talent and promising rookies.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 young drivers for the new season.
The odds for the 2020 LS Tractor 200 are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.
Herbst will move to a full-time NASCAR ride for the first time.
He has been part of Joe Gibbs Racing since 2017, running mostly in the ARCA Series.
Herbst also made some appearances in the Truck and Xfinity Series.
He has a best finish of third in eight Truck starts, and a best finish of sixth in ten Xfinity Series.
This is his big chance to finally have a breakout year.
Herbst has one win in 38 ARCA starts, finishing fifth and third in points.
Part of the Toyota Racing Development program, Burton is coming off a disappointing rookie season in the Truck Series.
He failed to win a single race and could only manage a 12th place in points, scoring only seven top 5 finishes and 11 top 10 results in 23 starts.
Burton spent the 2018 season juggling between seats, making starts in the ARCA, Truck and K&N Series.
He won the East Series title in 2017, and scored three wins in 17 ARCA starts between 2017 and 2019, missing out on the top 10 only twice.
While Burton has shown flashes, he’s yet to deliver a consistently good season.
The move to the Xfinity Series full-time for 2020 could provide that needed spark.
He made nine starts in the series last year, with a best finish of fourth at Iowa in only his second race.
Gragson is entering his second full season in the Xfinity Series.
After two seasons in the K&N West Series, he made the move to race for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the 2017 Truck Series season.
Gragson spent two seasons in the trucks, scoring two wins and finishing the 2018 season as the runner-up to Brett Moffitt.
He moved up to the Xfinity Series last year, making the switch to JR Motorsports.
Despite struggling early on, Gragson found his groove and ended the year on a hot streak, scoring eight top 5 and 19 top 10 starts in the last 23 races.
Now with a full season behind him, the sophomore is expected to fight for the championship in 2020.
