This weekend at Richmond Raceway, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has its first Saturday Night race of the season. Richmond is a track that features limited passing and low did-not-finish (DNF) rates.
The key stats that go into my machine learning model this weekend are starting position, long-run speed in final practice, year-to-date driver rating, and past Richmond quality pass percentage. I’ll also use the RotoViz Driver Sim Scores to gauge race-winning upside.
As always, make sure you shop around for the best lines!
