The 2016 Toyota Owners 400 live stream online and televised NASCAR Sprint Cup race hits Richmond, Virginia on Sunday afternoon with all eyes on the return of driver Tony Stewart. It will mark the first start for Stewart since November of 2015 when he competed in the Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Stewart was sidelined for the first eight races of this season due to a broken back injury. Can he claim the win on Sunday? The NASCAR live streaming online and televised race action comes via FOX networks from Richmond.
According to NASCAR.com in their April 23 report, Stewart will start at the No. 18 spot in Sunday’s race, making his return after the difficult injury he suffered on Jan. 31 while riding an all-terrain vehicle. Stewart made the surprise announcement this past Thursday via Twitter, letting fans know he’d be back in his No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet for the 40-car race at Richmond. He’s won at this event in back-to-back years, claiming the checkered flag in 2001 and 2002 while racing for Joe Gibbs Racing in his Pontiac. In more recent years, Kyle Busch has dominated this event.
While his brother Kurt took the win in 2015, Kyle has won at Richmond four of the last seven times. All four of those victories were consecutive from 2009 through 2012. Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano took wins in 2013 and 2014 before Kurt claimed last year’s race. In terms of the starting lineup, Kevin Harvick will have pole position after rain shortened practice at Richmond. Joey Logano has the No. 2 spot, while Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch round out the top five. Last year’s winner, Kurt Busch, starts No. 7 while Kyle is at the No. 9 spot.
The odds for Sunday’s race at Richmond International Speedway have Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch each at 5 to 1 odds. Carl Edwards and Matt Kenneth are 8 to 1 favorites, while Denny Hamlin is a 10 to 1 favorite to win. When it comes to the future odds to win the Sprint Cup Championship this season, Jimmie Johnson, Harvick and Kyle Busch are all tied with 5 to 1 odds. Joey Logano is a 6 to 1 favorite, while Brad Keselowski is 9 to 1. Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth are tied with 10 to 1 odd to win it.
