What Is At Stake?
With four winners throughout the first six races, securing success signifies an almost guaranteed spot in the postseason. Stage points can also be significant, and the mythical bullring could provide some unexpected outcomes.
Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the year after having a dominant showing at Martinsville. The 2012 champion scored back-to-back victories in 2011 and 2012, but hasn’t won at Bristol since then. Can he take on the momentum to change this?
Kevin Harvick is now third in the standings but has yet to win a race this season. The 2015 champion has two wins in 30 races at the track, but his form has improved with seven consecutive top 10 finishes. Bristol may not be the most likely spot for Harvick’s first win of the year, but the bullring always has a surprise or two in store.
Don’t count 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 in the track, with ensured an unexpected victory past summer.
