The favorite

Kyle Busch is atop the leaderboard at a short price of +350. The 35-year-old's been on a tear of late, recording four top-five finishes in his previous six outings.

Since 2005, Busch has owned Bristol. He's won on the course eight times, including three of his last five tries.

I can't disagree that he's the driver to beat.

Trending up

Clint Bowyer (28-1) is the best flier in the field. Despite not owning an outright win on this track, Bowyer has placed in the top 10 in seven of the last nine Bristol races, including eighth or better in each of his previous four. He could be a great buy in matchup prop formats, too.

You can't count out Kevin Harvick (8-1), though. He's finished inside the top 10 in each of the last 13 races, barely keeping the streak alive this week at the Alsco Uniforms 500.

Harvick has been slumping a bit at Bristol - he's finished 10th or worse in each of his last three races - but prior to that, he had five consecutive top-eight finishes on the course.

Trending down

Brad Keselowski (13-1) placed third at Bristol last August while leading for 91 laps. But that was more so a slump-buster than momentum, as Keselowski placed 16th or worse in seven Bristol races prior.

Alex Bowman (22-1) was recently a hot commodity, winning the Auto Club 400 in March and placing second at Darlington a couple of weeks ago. However, Bowman has had issues figuring out Bristol, evident by his average finish of 20.8 over eight career races at the track.
