The NASCAR Xfinity Series will follow up last week’s race with the Drydene 200 on Saturday at Dover International Speedway. The race is set to be aired at 12:30 p.m. ET and will precede a second Drydene 200 set to run on Sunday. We’ll go over the betting favorites and how the starting grid will be determined for the first leg below.
NASCAR changed how the qualifying will be determined in the three national series (Cup, Xfinity, Gander Outdoors Truck) in early August. Three performance metrics will be utilized, with each one weighted a little different. It breaks down as follows.
- Finishing position from the previous race (weighted 50%)
- Ranking in team owner points standings (35%)
- Fastest lap from the previous race (15%)
This system will be used for the remaining regular season races and the playoffs.
Austin Cindric is the the pole sitter and is looking to follow up last week’s win at Daytona. He and Chase Briscoe are favored at +225 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Those two are trailed by Justin Allgaier (+450) and Noah Gragson (+650), who both finished inside the top five at Daytona.
Here’s what the rest of the field looks like for Saturday’s Xfinity Series race.
