To say that Kyle Busch has dominated at Bristol would be a major understatement. He is an eight-time winner at the track, and seven of those wins have come in his last 11 starts here. Busch is also the defending winner of this weekend’s race, and he has finished third or better in seven straight starts at Bristol.
While it has been a few years since Brad Keselowski has made an XFINITY Series start at Bristol, he should return with a bang this weekend. He is a former winner at the track, and he has finished fourth or better in six of his 13 XFINITY starts here. Keselowski was the runner-up in his most-recent start at Bristol, and he should be back in the mix for the win Friday night.
He is still looking for his first win at Bristol, but Kyle Larson has already come close to winning on several occasions. He has cracked the top five in five of his six starts at the track, and more importantly, Larson has finished second three times.
After winning the spring race at Bristol, Erik Jones will try for a season sweep at the short track Friday night. His 4.3 average finish here is tied for the best in the series, and in three starts, he has never finished outside the top 10. Jones leads all series regulars in wins and top-five finishes, and he could add to both totals this weekend.
The other driver with a series-best 4.3 average finish at Bristol is Daniel Suarez. He has finished sixth or better in all three of his starts at the track, and he has finished as high as second. He has been in contention in every start he has made at Bristol, and there is no reason to expect that to change this weekend.
He has been rock solid at Bristol throughout his career, and in six starts here in the XFINITY Series, Ty Dillon has never finished worse than seventh. More importantly, he has cracked the top five in three of his last four starts. It is only a matter of time before Dillon breaks through and wins at Bristol.
He is a former winner at Bristol, and Justin Allgaier showed he hasn’t lost the feel for the track with his performance here in April. In his first start at Bristol since a fourth-place finish in 2013, he logged a top-five finish. Allgaier could be even better this weekend in his second start back since returning to the XFINTIY Series.
Although he has been in a slump at Bristol, Elliott Sadler is a former winner at the track at both the XFINITY and Cup level. He also enters Friday’s race as the point leader, so consistency has been his strength. Sadler could recapture his former Bristol magic this weekend.
While Jeff Gordon has been subbing for Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the Cup level, Regan Smith will step in for Junior in the XFINITY Series event this weekend. The former JR Motorsports driver should know his equipment well, and he finished in the top 10 in three of his last four starts at Bristol. Smith’s unexpected return could end in impressive fashion.
