What’s At Stake?
With four unique winners through the first six races, securing victory at Bristol means an almost place in the postseason. Stage points can also be significant, and the legendary bullring could deliver some unexpected outcomes.
Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the season following a showing at Martinsville. The 2012 champion scored successes in 2012 and 2011, but hasn’t won at Bristol since then. Can he take on the momentum to alter that?
Kevin Harvick is now third in the standings but has yet to win a race this season. The 2015 winner 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 place for Harvick’s first win of the year, but the bullring always has a surprise or two in store.
Don’t count Kurt Busch out. The elder Busch brother is second among active drivers with five wins at the bullring. The 2004 champion is also the most recent winner at the track, with ensured an unexpected victory last summer.
