The NASCAR Xfinity Series is back in action on Saturday, October 16th with the Andy’s Frozen Custard 335 at the Texas Motor Speedway. The race starts at 3:00 p.m. ET and will air on NBC. You can watch a live stream on NBC Sports Live.

The race is 200 laps, which runs 300 miles of track. Last year, Harrison Burton won the race with a time of 2:35:21. The previous two years ran 2:34:27 and 2:34:05, so we’ve had a bit of a pattern recently. It’s notable however that the previous eight races ran between 2:04:33 and 2:14:28. It’s worth noting there is a second Texas race each year and the past two years it ran 2:22:48 in June and 2:22:32 in July of 2020.

Austin Cindric is the favorite to win this race at DraftKings Sportsbook. He is installed at +300, followed by John H. Nemechek (+450), Noah Gragson (+500), A.J. Allmendinger (+600), and Justin Allgaier (+650). Allmendinger has the pole position and Cindric joins him in the front row to start Saturday’s race.
