NASCAR One & Done Picks for Richmond


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will travel to Richmond Raceway for a Saturday night short track race. This is the way racing should be. Richmond is .75-mile D-shaped flat track that provides some exciting racing. It should be fun to watch under the lights. The Toyota Owners 400 is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on Fox.

My goal every year in the One & Done game is to have an average finishing position of 15th or better from my drivers. I was happy with our One & Done pick last week. Getting a 12th place finish from Matt DiBenedetto feels like a win to me. It could have been better since he ran inside the top 10 for most of the race. At least it keeps us ahead of our goal and closer to having our average finishing position for the season in the top 10 (My average finishing position is currently 10.75)

Here are my picks for Richmond…

Kyle Busch ? Richmond Kyle Busch


My One & Done pick this week will Kyle Busch. We have to use him at some point during the season and it may not get better then the race Saturday night. Busch has three wins on the season, a 3.4 average finishing position and he won both races at Richmond last year. And he had the fastest car in practice.  You never know what can happen in NASCAR so you better take advantage of the opportunities when they are presented. I will burn my One & Done start with Busch Saturday night.


Good luck this week!
