The NASCAR Cup Series returns to Richmond this weekend as the race for the playoffs heats up. Five of the 16 playoff spots can still be clinched with five races remaining in the regular season, so literally everyone is still racing for the postseason after 21 races.

Championship leader Martin Truex Jr. is the favorite in the race with Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Christopher Bell not far behind. Despite the Gibbs Toyotas’ dominance at Richmond, Hendrick Motorsports’ Kyle Larson and Josh Berry (driving for a then-injured Chase Elliott) finished 1-2 in the spring race and again should provide a formidable challenge.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Cook Out 400:

Top drivers and best bets for the Cook Out 400

Martin Truex Jr. has three career wins at Richmond and enters the weekend as the favorite, according to BetMGM with a +375 moneyline. Denny Hamlin (+500) and Kyle Larson (+600) — who were at the center of last week’s kerfuffle at Pocono — have the next-best odds.

Best odds to win
• Martin Truex Jr. +375
• Denny Hamlin +500
• Kyle Larson +600
• Christopher Bell +800
• William Byron +900
• Kevin Harvick +900

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg wrote earlier in the week on some of the best bets for the weekend. He suggests good mid-tier value can be found in Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Chase Elliott (+1600), and 23XI’s Tyler Reddick (+1800). Elliott has five top-five finishes in 14 starts at Richmond, while Toyota and 23XI have been particularly strong this season on short tracks.
