After a long, very strange, season, we will finally see a trio of NASCAR champions crowned this coming weekend. We will get into the Cup Series in a separate piece, but for now, we are going to turn our attention to the Truck and Xfinity Series championship battle. We will have our first winner crowned on Friday night after the Truck Series ends their season with the Lucas Oil 150. Then, we will head into Saturday for the conclusion of the Xfinity Series season with the Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200. It is going to be an incredibly exciting weekend, with the final 4 in each series looking to end the year on a high. Let’s break down each of these races by looking at the 4 drivers left standing in each so you can make your bets against their NASCAR odds.
Truck Series & Xfinity Series Events for the Weekend | NASCAR Betting
Truck Series – Lucas Oil 150 – Friday at 8 PM EST
Heading into the final race of the season, it is Sheldon Creed (+400) who is sitting at the top of the standings. He has 4 wins on the season, with his most recent coming a couple of weeks ago in Texas. This is just his second full season in the Truck Series, so his experience at Phoenix is limited. In the two races that he has run there, 10th was his best finish.
Grant Enfinger (+1000) is hot on the heels of Creed, but the bookies are not particularly high on his chances of winning in Phoenix. This is perhaps a little surprising when you consider that he has been top 5 at that track in each of his last 2 runs there.
Brett Moffitt (+400) is in as the joint favorite with Creed this weekend even though he has just 1 win on the season to this point. He did not have a great run at Phoenix last season, but it was Moffitt who took the checkered flag in 2018.
Rounding out the top 4 is Zane Smith (+450), who has 2 wins on the season. This is an amazing year for a driver in his first full season in the Truck Series, no matter what happens.
Xfinity Series – Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200 – Saturday at 5 PM EST
Chase Briscoe (+325) has had an amazing season, picking up 9 wins to this point in the year. Getting #10 here would secure him the championship. He has cooled off a little over the past 2 weeks and did not run great at Phoenix last season, which is why he is not the favorite for this race.
Justin Allagier (+300) is in as the favorite for this one, which is not a total shock when you consider that he took the checkered flag here last season. That was his lone win at Phoenix, although he does also have a pair of top 5 finishes.
Sitting at #3 in the Xfinity Series standings at the moment is Justin Haley (+1000), who is in as a bit of a longshot for this race despite the fact that he already has 3 wins under his belt this season. He ran 7th at Phoenix last season, so he cannot be counted out.
The final driver in the final four is Austin Cindric (+425) who comes into the last race of the season with 5 wins already under his belt. He is certainly worth a look, as his last 2 races at Phoenix saw him finish 4th and 6th.
