Toyota Owners 400: Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 6:00 pm (Richmond International Raceway) See the Latest Odds
We hand out winners most weeks in NASCAR, so it’s only right we put together a fantasy lineup in hopes of cashing out there as well. With the prices released, here is this weeks lineup for the 2018 Toyota Owners 400.

We have $50,000 and have to fill six slots.
Jamie McMurray - Jamie McMurray has finished seventh or better in four of his last seven appearances at the Richmond International Raceway and is currently putting together some of his best showings, which includes a third place finish in Texas. McMurray is a really good pickup at $7,400.
Kyle Busch - Kyle Busch is expensive at $11,400, but we’re talking about a guy who has finished third or better in his last six races and has won the last two. Busch is also a four-time winner at this event. I’ll bite the bullet to include somebody who is pretty much guaranteed to produce a lot of points.
Alex Bowman - We need to go a little cheaper to average our cost out now, and I’m going to buy Alex Bowman at $7,100. Bowman doesn’t have great history in Richmond, but he has produced top-10 finishes in two of his last three races, earning 50-plus points those two weeks. This is a nice dark horse selection.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. - Another guy you can get rather cheap is Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at $7,800. Stenhouse is coming off his best finish of the season with an eighth place finish in Bristol, and he finished fourth in this event last year. Look for Stenhouse to build on the momentum this week.
Ryan Newman - I included Ryan Newman on my betting card this week, and you can get him in fantasy for $8,100. Newman is coming off a top-10 finish last week, and he has top-10 finishes in five of his last nine appearances in Richmond, which includes an average finish of fifth place in the two races here last year. The veteran should help your team in a positive way this week.
Clint Bowyer - Clint Bowyer has top-10 finishes in each of his last three races and has quite the history in Richmond. In this particular race alone, Bowyer has seven top-10 finishes, and that includes a victory in 2008. Bowyer has been a fantasy machine the last few weeks, especially when he had 145 points at the STP 500. You can get Bowyer this week for $8,000.
