The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series’ ToyotaCare 250 will take place at Richmond Raceway on Thursday and is set to begin at 8:00 p.m. ET. The race will be aired on FS1. We’ll go over the starting grid and betting favorites below.

NASCAR made changes to how qualifying in the three national series (Cup, Xfinity, Gander Outdoors Truck) in 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%)

Brett Moffitt will start in fourth on the grid and has the best odds on DraftKings Sportsbook at +350, but Sheldon Creed isn’t far behind at +450. Points leader Austin Hill is also expected to be in the hunt as the pole sitter and rounds out the top three favorites at +500.

Here’s what the rest of the field looks like for Thursday’s Truck Series race.
