It’s an interesting night of racing heading into the Alsco 300 betting preview. The event takes place at Kentucky Speedway but it’s also the 2nd race in as many days at the track. Throw in the flip-flopping of the starting grid from Thursday’s event and there could be any number of contenders coming out of the woodwork to capture the checkered flag.
It was Austin Cindric holding on for Thursday’s Shady Rays 200 win and he is +300 to make it back-to-back in Alsco 300 betting. Chase Briscoe will be the favorite on Friday at +250 as his 4th place finish on Thursday was just the 2nd time in the last 5 races that he didn’t win. Myatt Snider will get the pole for Friday’s race with value at +8000 to win. Let’s look at some of the matchups:
Noah Gragson +300
The 3rd highest favorite for Alsco 300 betting is Noah Gragson who looked on pace for a win in Thursday’s Shady Rays 200. Gragson led all laps under green in the first two stages on Thursday until deciding to take four tires instead of two on the final pit which attributed to an 11th place finish. Even so, Gragson had 23 of the fastest laps and led 87 of them total. He did start on the pole yesterday but is still a manageable 5th on Friday.
Pick: Noah Gragson +300
Brett Moffitt +10000
Brett Moffitt was a longshot play at +55000 yesterday and although he didn’t capture the checkered flag it was still another quality race with a 10th place finish (even despite a wreck). The fact that Moffitt is down to +10000 for the Alsco 300 shows how impressive he has been as of late. Throwing out the road race at the Brickyard last weekend, Moffitt has finished 5th, 7th, and 10th his last three. Friday’s #6 starting spot is also much higher than his previous best of 13th on the season.
Pick: Moffitt +10000
Michael Annett +5500
Michael Annett had the benefit of a high quality 4th place starting position for Thursday’s race and he was able to maintain for the entire night to cross the line 5th. It was a solid run for Annett who was one of six racers with a 100+ driver rating (104.9) and had one fastest lap. It was the 3rd straight top 10 finish for Annett who will go from the 11th spot on Friday.
Pick: Annett +5500
Jesse Little +35000
There’s great potential with Jesse Little heading into Alsco 300 betting. For one, he’s starting from the #2 position right beside Snyder. Little hasn’t started better than 13th in any of his five races on the season. The #4 Chevy looked good at Kentucky on Thursday even though his 14th place finish may not look like as much. Little had the 4th highest percentage of quality passes (95) and raced in the top 15 98.5% of his laps. A lot of luck would need to happen for Little to get the win on Friday, but anything can happen on the back-to-back.
