The NASCAR Xfinity Series will be in Wisconsin at Road America this weekend for the Henry 180. The race is set to begin at 12:00 p.m. ET and will be aired on NBCS. We’ll go over the betting favorites and starting grid for the race below, but first, let’s go over how qualifying works in the Xfinity Series.
NASCAR is not holding traditional qualifying runs to cut down on events and attempt to protect health and safety. The Cup, Xfinity, and Truck Series are using random draws connected to points standings. The Xfinity Series has been using a team points process for determining starting grid. The point totals break down top third, middle third, and bottom third, and then there is a random draw of teams within those thresholds.
Austin Cindric is favored at +135 on DraftKings Sportsbook, and he’s riding a ridiculous hot streak. He won three straight races before finishing second in his last outing and hasn’t dropped outside the top five in five races. Cindric became the points leader by bumping Chase Briscoe (+550) from the top spot in his last race. A.J. Allmendinger (+275) has the second best odds. He has one win and five top five finishes in five Xfinity Series starts. He isn’t high up in the standings at 26th, but performs well when he’s competing.
Here is the complete starting grid for the Henry 180.
