What Is At Stake?
With four winners through the first six races, securing success at Bristol signifies an almost spot in the postseason. Stage points can also be significant, along with the mythical bullring could deliver some unexpected results.
Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the year after having a showing at Martinsville. Back-to-back successes were scored by the 2012 champion in 2011 and 2012, but has not won at Bristol since then. Can he carry on the momentum?
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 in 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 rely out Kurt Busch. The elder Busch brother is second among active drivers with five wins in the bullring. The 2004 champion is also the latest winner in the track, having ensured an unexpected victory last summer.

Together with seven wins at Bristol, together with all those coming at the spring race, championship leader Kyle Busch is the obvious favorite. Following a solid start to the season, the driver of the #18 Joe Gibbs Racing car has yet to finish outside the top 10 throughout six races. Busch includes two race wins and a series-leading four point victories to his title.
Joey Logano heads a three-way tie to the third most wins in the track among active drivers. The reigning Monster Energy Cup Series champion has two wins in the monitor, his latest success being back-to-back wins at the summer race back in 2014 and 2015. Logano has seven top 10 finishes in the last ten races in Bristol, and although the #22 may be the most dominant driver at the track, he figures one of the favorites.
