What Is At Stake?
With four different winners throughout the first six races, securing success at Bristol means an almost guaranteed spot in the postseason. Stage points can also be important, along with the legendary bullring could provide some unexpected results.
Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the season following a dominant showing at Martinsville. The 2012 champion scored back-to-back successes in 2011 and 2012, but hasn’t won at Bristol since then. Can he carry on the momentum to alter this?
Kevin Harvick is currently third in the standings but has yet to win a race this year. The 2015 champion has two wins in 30 races at the track, but his form has improved with seven consecutive top 10 finishes. Bristol might not be the most likely spot for Harvick’s first win of this year, however, the bullring always has a surprise or two in store.
Don’t rely out Kurt Busch. The elder Busch brother is second among active drivers with five wins in the bullring. The 2004 winner is also the latest winner at the track, having procured an unexpected victory last summer.
