The NASCAR Xfinity Series is in Chicago this weekend to race at the street course through Grant Park. Last year, weather impacted this race heavily as it was limited to just 25 laps, with Cole Custer leading all 25 laps to win the race.

Coming into this race, Custer holds a 15-point lead over Chandler Smith in the battle for the regular season championship. Justin Allgaier, Austin Hill, and Riley Herbst are the current top five.

Potential Top Plays

Note: This is being written before qualifying. I'll try to post some post-qualifying thoughts over on X later.

Shane Van Gisbergen ($10.5K)

Last year, Shane Van Gisbergen made his NASCAR debut in the Cup race here. He won. This season in Xfinity, he's run three road course races, winning twice and leading 20 laps at COTA before issues put him back in 27th at the end. SVG is the clear favorite on Saturday as he's quickly established himself as the Xfinity Series' best road course guy.

Take a look at Shane van Gisbergen’s footwork as he navigated the NASCAR Chicago street course last year.

Ty Gibbs ($10.0K)

Ty Gibbs has started third or better in all four of his Xfinity Series starts this season, but has run into issues and finished in the top 10 just once despite leading 26 or more laps three times. At some point, the former Xfinity champion will put a full race together and win one of these.

Kyle Larson ($10.3K)

Any time Kyle Larson's racing, he's a threat to win. Road courses aren't necessarily his best track type, but he has five Cup Series wins on them and finished fourth in last season's Cup race here. He's made one Xfinity start this season, qualifying on the pole and winning at COTA.

A.J. Allmendinger ($9.8K)

While his Kaulig teammate Shane Van Gisbergen has started to establish himself as the top road course driver in Xfinity with wins in two of the three road course races this season, A.J. Allmendinger is still really, really good at this kind of track, with top 10s at COTA and Portland already this season. Of his 17 career Xfinity Series wins, 11 have been on road courses.

Potential Mid-Tier Options

Cole Custer ($9.2K)

Cole Custer led every lap here last year on his way to the victory. He has two wins and 20 top 10s in 26 Xfinity Series starts on road courses. If you want a slightly cheaper pivot off the top guys, I think Custer is your man. He's not the favorite to win, but it wouldn't be a shock if it happens.

John Hunter Nemechek ($8.8K)

Last weekend's winner isn't thought of as a road course ace, but he was third at COTA and eighth at Sonoma in Xfinity this season and was second in last season's race here. This is a stacked field, but JHN shouldn't be counted out.

Austin Hill ($8.5K)

Austin Hill finished fifth here last season. He has 12 top 10s in 20 road course starts in the Xfinity Series, though he's yet to win one. With the strength of this field, Hill probably isn't getting that first road course win on Saturday, but he can absolutely finish the day with a strong top-10 run.

Justin Allgaier ($9.0K)

Justin Allgaier had a solid run here last year, starting sixth and finishing third. He has 34 top 10s on road courses in his Xfinity career with an average finish of 12.4. He should be a contender for a top 10 at the very least.

Potential Value Options

Austin Green ($7.8K)

Before this season, Austin Green had never run an Xfinity Series race. Now, he's run three and has finished seventh, 15th, and fourth. Each time, he's started outside the top 20. I'm not sure how likely it is that Green does the same thing again this weekend, butif he did, he'd likely wind up in the optimal lineup.

Cards weren’t in our favor @roadamerica. The Peterson Racing @3DServicesGroup gave their all. Eyes on the streets of Chicago with @NASCAR_Xfinity this weekend!

Connor Mosack ($7.5K)

Connor Mosack is set for his first start of 2024 for JRM. Last year, he qualified fourth here for Sam Hunt Racing. Mosack has two career top 10s in Xfinity, both at road courses. With a fast car under him, he can definitely contend for a top 10 on Saturday, even in a loaded field.

Sage Karam ($7.7K)

It's been a rough year for Sage Karam, who has two DNFs, a 35th, and a best finish of 17th in four Xfinity Series starts. The luck hasn't been on his side. Still, he's in a relatively quick Sam Hunt Racing car and was fourth at Road America for this team last season.

Alon Day ($6.2K)

Alright, so do y'all remember the 2016 Xfinity Series race at Mid-Ohio? Alon Day ran it in a Zombie Dodge, it rained, and he was out there running top five for a bit until he was collected in a crash that slowed the car down. Well, Day's back, and this Alpha Prime Racing car he's in is easily the best ride he's ever had in the American NASCAR top-three series. Day can make some noise on Saturday.

Alex Labbe ($6.7K)

Canadian driver Alex Labbe likely won't wow anyone this weekend, but he finished 19th at Sonoma, his other Xfinity Series start in the No. 07 car. If he has a poor qualifying effort, he could wind up as a strong play because of the place differential upside.
