The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Alabama this weekend for the Sparks 300. The Talladega Superspeedway will host the event on Saturday, October 1. The race begins at 4 p.m. eastern time and will air on USA Network with the live stream available at NBC Sports Live and USANetwork.com.
The race is 113 laps around the 2.66 -mile circuit. It’s one of the sport’s newest contests, starting just two years ago in 2020. It was originally meant as a replacement after a race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The race was such a success that it permanently joined the XFINITY lineup in 2021.
Noah Gragson is the favorite heading into the race, sitting on the moneyline at +700 to win it all and +100 to finish in the top 5 of the race. Last year’s champion, Brandon Brown, is a pretty big longshot. He’s sitting at +4000 to win it all and +500 to finish in the top 5. Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
