Betting Preview for the Toyota Owners 400 NASCAR Cup Series Race on April 3, 2022
Where: Richmond Raceway VA
When: Sunday, April 3, 2022, green flag at 3:30 PM ET
Kyle Larson (+800)
It’s too early to push the panic button on Larson even after a 29th-place at the 2022 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix – his third start in a row in which he was not able to have a result better than 29th place. Larson is bound to have great results, and that could come as soon as this week at Richmond Raceway, where he has six top 10s in 14 starts, including a win at the 2017 Federated Auto Parts 400.
Chase Elliott (+850)
Elliott has been consistently putting himself in a position to win this season. While he remains winless this year, Elliott has four top 10s in seven starts. He was 10th last Sunday at the 2022 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix and will chase a victory next at Richmond Raceway, where he has four top 5s in 12 starts.
Martin Truex Jr. (+900)
If there’s a driver that can’t be missed in discussions about ANY race at Richmond Raceway, it’s got to be Truex. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver is coming off back-to-back top 10s at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 and at the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix. But more importantly, Truex has three wins in his last five appearances at Richmond Raceway. The other two starts during that stretch were fifth place at the 2021 Toyota Owners 400 and a runner-up at the 2020 Federated Auto Parts 400.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (+5000)
Stenhouse has cracked the top 10 just once in seven starts this season and he hasn’t even made the top 20 in any of his past four starts. Then again, he has 11 top 20s and a couple of top 10s in 17 career starts at Richmond Raceway.
Justin Haley (+8000)
The Richard Childress Racing driver hasn’t placed better than 27th in either of his two career starts at Richmond Raceway, but he has a four-start streak of top 20s going heading to the 2022 Toyota Owners 400.
Greg Biffle (+5000)
Biffle finished 20th in his most recent NASCAR Cup Series start, which was at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 – his best performance in three starts so far this season. He also has a career average finish of 17.72 in 29 starts at Richmond Raceway.
