The NASCAR Xfinity Series’ Alsco 300 is set for Saturday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. ET and will air on NBCS. We’ll go over the betting favorites to win and the starting grid here.

The starting grid has been determined by random draws that take team owner points into account since the restart, but NASCAR has changed how qualifying works in the three national series (Cup, Xfinity, Gander Outdoors Truck) moving forward. Here’s a breakdown of the new system.

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%)

Pole sitter Chase Briscoe (+275) and Austin Cindric (+250) have the best odds to win on DraftKings Sportsbook and will start first and second on the grid. Both Drivers have 2050 points in the Xfinity Series this year, but Briscoe tops the standings thanks to his seven wins. He’s coming off a win at last week’s Food City 300 and has momentum on his side.

Here’s what the rest of the field looks like for Saturday’s Xfinity Series race.
