XFINITY hits the road course in Portland, Oregon. The 1.90 road course will have 75 laps run on it by the drivers on Saturday with qualifying coming a few hours before the scheduled green flag. I’ll highlight some drivers to look at pre-qualifying and will try to touch base in Discord prior to the green flag.

Josh Berry ($10,300)
Berry impressed here last season starting 19th before driving himself to a fourth-place finish. At the XFINITY level Berry has performed well in road courses posting an average finish of 10th with two top-fives in seven races.
Myatt Snider ($8,100)
Speaking of making up ground, Snider finished second in this race last season, led 19 laps, and started 25th. He has experience on road courses at every level but his results as an XFINITY driver have been all over the map, often due to questionable equipment. Snider does have five top-10’s In road courses suggesting he could be a value depending on where he qualifies.
Justin Allgaier ($10,500)
J.A. as a veteran has been very strong at road courses with 14 top-five’s, three wins, and an average finish of 12th. Allgaier finished fifth last season here after starting ninth and hanging around the front for most of the day.
Austin Hill ($9,900)
Hill has been on a mission this season with his three wins and six top-five finishes. He’s in a great car and in a race last season here with road course aces such as Ty Gibbs and A.J. Allmendinger, Hill finished second just coming up short from chasing down Allmendinger.
