What’s At Stake?
With four different winners through the first six races, securing victory at Bristol signifies an almost place in the postseason. Stage points can also be significant, along with the mythical bullring could provide some unforeseen outcomes.

Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the season following a showing at Martinsville. Back-to-back victories were scored by the 2012 winner in 2011 and 2012, but hasn’t 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 might not be the most likely spot for Harvick’s first win of this 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 at the bullring. The 2004 champion is also the latest winner at the track, having ensured an unexpected victory past summer.

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 at the track among active drivers. The reigning Monster Power Cup Series champion has two wins at the track, his most recent victory being back-to-back wins in the summertime back in 2014 and 2015. Logano has seven top 10 finishes in the last 10 races in Bristol, and although the #22 may be the most dominant driver at the monitor, he still figures one of the favorites.
