Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to the NASCAR Cup race at Richmond International Raceway.
Erik Jones. Toyota wins its fourth consecutive race at this track and rookie scores his first Cup victory.
Clint Bowyer wins his first race in six years at the track where his career began to unravel in the September 2013 race with the notorious “Spin Gate.”
Pole-sitter Matt Kenseth wins this and becomes the first Joe Gibbs Racing driver to win a NASCAR Cup race in 2017. Kenseth has a good record at Richmond with two wins. He makes it three visits to victory lane this afternoon.
