NASCAR at Richmond: TV schedule, standings, qualifying drivers for Toyota Owners 400
After an extended weekend in Bristol, NASCAR heads from the "World’s Fastest Half-Mile" to a three-quarter mile track at Richmond Raceway for the first Saturday night race of the season.
Monday's finish marked the fifth time Kyle Busch won back-to-back races. He shows up at Richmond this week as the points leader and one of the favorites to win again. A victory Saturday would mark the second time in Busch’s 14-year Cup career that he’s won three straight races.
Busch’s four victories and 15 top-five finishes are most among his competition this weekend at Richmond. Busch’s 109.7 driver rating is tops in the series, as is his 7.4 average finishing position.
This weekend the second round of the Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash joins the Cup Series at Richmond. Here's the full schedule.
