Last week’s Cup Series star Tyler Reddick did the Texas Two-Step right to victory lane. The very first Xfinity win for Big Machine Racing. Owned by music mogul Scott Borchetta founder of Big Machine Records. This was the team’s 45th start in the Xfinity Series.
This week the teams head back to the area most are based. Charlotte, North Carolina for a “home track” type of race. Everyone wants to win at Charlotte. Members of the team who don’t usually travel to all the tracks get to show up for the home game. Team owners are in attendance. It’s a huge weekend of racing for memorial weekend, as we honor those who gave it all to allow us this wonderful weekend of racing.

Qualifying once again goes to JR Motorsports. This time young gun Sam Mayer puts his #1 Chevrolet on the pole. Jr Motorsports taking three of the top-5 starting spots. Ryan Preece will start the Bj McLeod ford in third. Showing us, that this is a Stewart-Haas Racing prepared driver. Preece competed in the truck series race Friday night and plans to run the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday. If he’s able to complete all three races, it will be an 1100-mile feat on the weekend for the 31-year-old driver from Berlin, Connecticut.

NASCAR Xfinity Best Bets:
Sam Mayer Over Daniel Hemric (-145)
JR Motorsports has been the hands-down best team in the Xfinity Series this season. Mayer qualified fastest in Friday’s session, while Hemric will start 10th. If you take out Talladega where Mayer was caught up in a wreck, he has six straight top-5 finishes. Mayer is still seeking that first win but he has been knocking on the door. Hemric the defending series champion has struggled a bit so far in 2022. In the last five races and seven of the last eight, Hemric has only one top-10 finish. Mayer has proven consistency and if he can clean up the mistakes, has a win coming soon. Hemric and his team just aren’t up to par so far this year.
Cody’s Favorite Bet: Austin Dillion Over Brandon Jones (-105)
I talked about this on this week’s episode of the (NASCAR GAMBLING PODCAST) about my love for Austin Dillion this weekend. It all starts Saturday in the Xfinity Series. Dillion, who is the grandson of Cup Series team owner Richard Childress, is coming down to race in the Xfinity Series this weekend racing the same car that Reddick won in at Texas last week. And for some reason isn’t getting that kind of respect. Jones is a solid driver who can usually score you a decent run, he does have a win this year but isn’t generally one of the front runners. Dillion loves this track, getting his first Cup Series win in the 2017 running of the Coca-Cola 600. This car will be prepared by Richard Childress Racing, as it was last week for Reddick.
To Win: Sam Mayer (+1500)
At the time I’m writing this, Mayer is +1500 on Fan Duel Sportsbook, but +600 on other books. Run to the window and bet this before they change it. I still like Mayer even down at the +600 range so if that’s where you can get it go ahead and take it. I made the case above for him, and I think this is his week to put it all together.
To Win: Longshot Austin Dillion (+2000)
This time it’s DraftKings Sportsbook that has the best line on Dillion. Like I said I love him this weekend and took him at +1200 on this week’s podcast. If you are feeling frisky on DraftKings he’s also +500 for a top-3 and +200 for a top-5. I like all of these.
NASCAR Xfinity DraftKings DFS Picks:
DFS Top Play: Ty Gibbs ($11,000)
Gibbs is almost a must-play this weekend. He hit the wall in practice and was unable to qualify. Therefore he will start and be scored from the 36th starting position. He is the highest-priced driver on the slate, but with as good as he is and all of this place-differential potential, he’s almost the free spot on the bingo card.
Dominator Play: Justin Allgaier ($10,600)
Starting outside of row one, Allgaier has shown his speed this season. While I like Mayer to win and he is starting first. I don’t trust Mayer as much to keep himself up front all day. Allgaier might jump out to an early lead and dominate a good portion of this race.
Great Play: Austin Dillon ($10,100)
All aboard the Dillion train this weekend for me. Starting 13th he offers some solid place differential. Dillion is in the car that won last weekend and knows this track so well. He is also a Cup Series regular and that gives him a leg up on the competition. If he can run a good race and be in the mix at the end like I expect. He can be another great player Saturday.
Value Play: Brandon Brown ($7,000)
Brown starts back in 32nd place. His season hasn’t been as good as expected, he does have two top-18 finishes in the last three races. These aren’t super impressive stats but for a cheap veteran driver starting that far back. He offers the potential for a solid run and to score enough points to make it worth it!
