The High Line – XFINITY Series- Contender Boats 300 – Homestead-Miami Speedway – October 21, 2023

Top Drivers

Cole Custer ($11,000), Starting on the Pole

Cole Custer grabs 1st Xfinity Series win of the season in Portland - The  Columbian

Custer comes in still alive as one of the final four drivers contending for the XFINITY Championship and is in a great spot on the pole. In his career at Homestead in the XFINITY Series Custer has dominated with three top-three’s, a win, and has led 92 or more laps on two occasions.

John Hunter Nemechek ($11,500), Starting 2nd

JHN has a top-five in his career at Homestead in the XFINITY Series and this season he’s been on another level. In 30 starts JHN has seven wins, and 16 top-fives with dominant performances all over the place including 45 or more laps led on nine seperate occasions this season. He’s the Championship frontrunner right now and a driver I expect to challenge Custer for the win here.

Derek Kraus ($7,800), Starting 20th

With an average finish of 14th this season Kraus could provide some solid P.D. value in the Kaulig number 10 car. He has three top-10 finishes in just six XFINITY races this season and is a budding start in NASCAR. Kraus has run Homestead in a truck before showing some familiarity here and the equipment he’s running is more than adequate.

Jeb Burton ($7,300), Starting 28th

Plenty of floor with some upside here for Burton starting back at 28th. Jeb has a win this season but more importantly for our position, he has an average finish of 15th on the season with five top-10’s. In three career races at Homestead at this level Burton has an average finish of 10th.
