Kevin Harvick, the championship leader, and Joey Logano have the best wins of the series and are looking to add to that
Harvick, who has the best odds to win, has four runner-up finishes and has won two races since last year. Harvick’s No.4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team is coming in on a streak of seven top-five wins in 2020 so far.
"We’re just kind of grinding away," said Harvick. "We kind of got behind New Hampshire (last week) and were able to make up a lot of ground. Our team is doing a great job and we’re doing what we need to do each week and we’ve been fortunate to win a few races and we’re ready to get through the final few races before the Playoffs start."
Austin Cindric, who has been given the shortest odds to win the Xfinity Henry by online sportsbooks, is coming off three straight Xfinity wins.
Many NASCAR bettors agree that the odds have it right with the top drivers, Cindric, AJ Allmendinger, and Chase Briscoe, with the closest odds but anything could happen during this time of the season.
