1. Noah Gragson ($10,800) — Can the kid from his hometown finally win in Las Vegas? He finished third behind his teammates last fall, but overcame two pit road penalties in this race. JR Motorsports was the fastest team at Auto Club last week, and they will probably be the team to beat on Saturday.

2. Justin Allgaier ($10,400) — The countless restarts at the end of Fontana’s race took their toll and Allgaier finished eighth despite a top-3 car. Last season in Las Vegas, Allgaier had a top-3 car and finished second to JR Motorsport teammate Josh Berry.

3. Ty Gibbs ($11,000) — Fontana was not a good start for Gibbs. He got wrecked by Daniel Hemric, then was condemned in Stage 3 because he lost a set of tyres. Regardless of the wreckage and tire situation, Gibbs was only a 5th place driver. It’s pretty good, but he set the bar high with four wins last season.

4. Josh Berry ($9,700) — When Michael Annett couldn’t race in Las Vegas last fall, Berry jumped into the #1 JR Motorsports car and won. Berry and crew chief Mike Bumgarner are back for more. Allgaier and Gragson will be the favourites, but Berry was ridiculously quick and smooth last season at Sin City.

5. Daniel Hemric ($9,900) — His #11 Kaulig Racing Chevy was not the best car on the grid last week. It was only a top 10 car, but Hemric got every ounce of speed out of his car. He was as aggressive as he’s ever been. Winning a championship changed Hemric. Is it for better or for worse? He’ll probably do more damage with it, but he might actually win a few races now that he’s got some attitude.

6. AJ Allmendinger ($10,200) — In clean air, Kaulig Racing cars are excellent on intermediate tracks. In traffic, these cars are among the top 10 cars. When do you ever see Kaulig Racing cars carving out a place in the top 10? Allmendinger won this race last season in clean air. He looked great last week in the clean air. No one can spend the whole race in clean air.

7. Brandon Jones ($9,500) — Last week was a disaster, but luckily Jones is alive. He was shipwrecked in every way imaginable in Fontana. Jones has skills and a good car, but he’s not a great car and he’s not great. In fact, it’s far from great and might be the biggest disappointment in the history of the Xfinity series.

8. John Hunter Nemechek ($9,200) — It’s not a top-tier car, but the equipment from Sam Hunt Racing is solid. Nemechek will get everything he can out of it. He finished third in Sam Hunt’s No. 26 Toyota at Richmond last season. If there are a lot of wrecks, and JHN is not one of them, he can come away with a top 5.

9. Sam Mayer ($8,600) — Throw away last season. Mayer was a part-time driver for JR Motorsports, and that paid ride was suspect in recent seasons. JR Motorsports had the best cars last week, and Mayer finished ahead with his teammates (sixth).

10. Ryan Truex ($8,500) — The check has cleared, so Truex can drive the #18 JGR car this week. Truex has rented out good and bad rides over the past few seasons with mixed results. He’s good enough to run in the top 10, but he’ll need chaos to win. The chaos part is not the range.

11. Sheldon Creed ($8,300) — It will never change and no one wants it. Creed has destroyed a lot of trucks over the past four years, but he’s won eight races and a championship. Creed is the ultimate GPP game this week and every week. He’s always looking for low downforce cars, but he doesn’t need to understand them to win.

12. Ryan Sieg ($7,200) — RSS Racing brought hotrods to the Fontana track. This week, like everyone else, they will drive the same cars. Since 2019, Sieg has three finishes of sixth or better in Las Vegas

13. Brandon Brown ($7,600) — You’ve been playing DFS NASCAR for too long when you worry about the cryptocurrency narrative (these cars always crash). Other than that, Brown looked great last week. He drove through the field and fought back with a damaged car to finish 11th.

14. Joey Gase ($5,300) — It sounds crazy, but it’s crazy as a fox. All the worthy pilots will be in the race. They have incentives. Their careers are at stake. Desperate drivers with substandard gear don’t deliver. They don’t end. Gase owns his car. He doesn’t want to destroy his car. While the clowns around him jump into the wall, the tortoise moves slowly and steadily across the field.

15. David Starr ($4,500) — Bobby Dotter (SS Green Light Racing) formed a technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing during the offseason. Last week, Cole Custer drove a Bobby Dotter car and won at Fontana. Normally one would assume that Custer was in special gear and not a typical Dotter car. However, on this West Coast swing, the teams must use the same car. Starr is at minimum price, but he is driving last week’s winning car. What a world.
