The Nationwide series moves to .75 mile Richmond International Raceway and a 7:43pm EST green flag on Friday night. Denny Hamlin is the defending champ, but is not entered into this weekends race. Richmond is unique in its shape which is close to the letter D. Even with those turns, the qualifying speeds are nearly 130 miles per hour.

Here is a quick look at our favorites for Friday night's race.

Kevin Harvick: Richmond is probably one of Harvicks favorite tracks. He is a four-time winner here and is always a good bet to finish in the top ten. Harvick finished second in last years race after starting the race in the 6th spot.

Carl Edwards: Carl is a licenced airplane pilot and after last week can say he also has flown a car. Not a bad thing for Carl to follow up that Talladega wreck with a short track and lower speeds. Carl started last years race on the front row and led 126 laps of the race before finishing seventh.

Jason Keller: Keller is our long shot pick this week. Keller actually won this event back in 2002 and placed 5th in 2004. Keller sits in seventh place in the Nationwide standings.
