What’s At Stake?
With four unique winners throughout the first six races, securing victory at Bristol signifies an almost spot in the postseason. Stage points are also significant, and the legendary bullring could deliver some unforeseen outcomes.

Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the year after having a dominant showing at Martinsville. Back-to-back victories were scored by the 2012 winner in 2011 and 2012, but has not won at Bristol since then. Can he take on the momentum?

Kevin Harvick is now third in the standings but has yet to win a race this year. 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 place for Harvick’s first win of this year, but the bullring always has a surprise or two in store.

Don’t rely Kurt Busch out. The elder Busch brother is second among active drivers with five wins at the bullring. The 2004 winner is also the most recent winner in the track, with ensured an unexpected victory past summer.
