The 2021 edition of the race goes down this Sunday, April 18, at the Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia. Three of the Toyota Owners 400 betting favorites are Toyota drivers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that your best bets should be focused on the manufacturer killing it at “The Action Track.”

Feel free to compare the best odds for the Toyota Owners 400 over at the top NASCAR sportsbooks.

Regardless of the betting site for NASCAR races you settle on, it looks a near certainty that you will find Truex at around the +400 with the bookies. With just days until the drivers converge on the asphalt at Richmond, he seems assured of his place as the favorite. 

I’ll be looking at Truex as well as the other betting favorites for the 2021 Toyota Owners 400 throughout this betting preview. There are drivers other than the Gibbs star definitely in with a shout. This is despite the man of the hour earning a win at Martinsville last weekend and also defending his crown in this event. 

Let’s see who the top contenders for the Toyota Owners 400 are ahead of the race this Sunday. 

Top Contenders for the 2021 Toyota Owners 400

  • Where: Richmond Raceway, Virginia
  • When: Sunday, April 18

There are a handful of drivers with a chance to win the Toyota Owners 400 this Sunday.

I would wager a guess that most respectable pundits will be looking at Martin Truex Jr. as the leading candidate, and the latest NASCAR odds back this up. Truex won the last event in 2019 and recently bagged his second win of the current Cup Series campaign on April 11.

Truex features in my predictions for the 2021 Toyota Owners 400 and deserves your attention. But at the odds below, I’m not jumping out of my seat. In fact, there are better drivers in this event, historically speaking, thus some pretty good odds if you are thinking outside of the box. 

Nonetheless, here are the five best candidates for the race this weekend.

Martin Truex Jr.+400
Brad Keselowski+600
Joey Logano+750
Kyle Busch+800
Kevin Harvick+1100

While making my Toyota Owners 400 predictions, I couldn’t help but look toward Kevin Harvick for the big race this Sunday.

Harvick has three top-5s and five top-10s from his last five starts on this short track. Furthermore, his average finish of 5.00 since February 2018 makes him the third-best driver behind Kyle Busch (3.60) and Martin Truex (4.20) in Richmond’s last five events.

Key Betting Trends for the Toyota Owners 400

  • Winner of the Previous Event: Martin Truex Jr. (2019)
  • Previous Event Winning Team and Manufacturer: Joe Gibbs Racing/Toyota
  • Most Successful Active Driver in This Race: Kyle Busch (5 Wins)
  • Most Wins – Active Teams: Joe Gibbs Racing (7) Hendrick Motorsports (5)
  • Most Successful Active Manufacturers: Chevrolet (21), Ford (15)

Other than Kyle Busch, Joey Logano is the only other active driver with multiple wins in this event.

Logano’s victories in 2014 and 2017 might not be as impressive as Hamlin’s triumphs — especially the four consecutive wins between 2009 and 2012 —but he is worth looking at for sure. 

If you’re betting on a Toyota car winning the Toyota Owners 400 in 2021, don’t be downhearted at the fact that the manufacturer has just seven victories in this event. Toyota’s first entry in the Spring race at Richmond came in 2007, while the race was first staged in 1953.

Let’s look to the future and get to my betting pick for the Toyota Owners 400 this Sunday. But if you need reminding of what happened last time out, check the video below.

  • Kyle Busch
    +800

Even bordering on brave, it isn’t easy to look past Martin Truex Jr. to win the 2021 Toyota Owners 400.

But if there is a driver with the history behind him at Richmond, it’s Kyle Busch. A Toyota driver, Busch, will be desperate to get his car over the finish line first to register his sixth win in this event.

Let’s see if Busch repays my faith with a win this weekend.
