NASCAR at Bristol: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for Food City 500

NASCAR is taking a tiny break from the tracks over the next few weeks, and this weekend’s event heads to the half-mile venue at Bristol Motor Speedway.

While the racing will be shifting up a bit right now, the storylines remain virtually the same: Kyle Busch has one of the greatest cars every week, Kevin Harvick is still searching for his first win and Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin will be lurking for their third successes. The past is the past, however, and Busch has all of the history with seven career wins in the trail with 10 leading 5s and 15 top 10s to his title there. He won last year’s race in the spring and will be looking for his third triumph , but it should also be noted he has wrecked in Bristol, therefore there’s some risk here.

Hamlin and keselowski do not quite have the exact same track record since Busch but Harvick has become the very best in terms of consistency lately. He has not finished outside the top 10 in his past seven races and has two wins there.

History says the win should be factored into by him, but he simply has had the car to acquire and that cannot be dismissed. So until Harvick proves he can get a win it’s quite hard to call it being made by him into victory lane.

We’re going with Busch since he enjoys Bristol, has the best auto and has factored into the laps at each race he’s been in this season from the Cup Series on down to the Trucks.
