Safe Bet

Kurt Busch

Busch has six wins at Bristol with the most recent coming in the 2018 night race. He has five top-10 finishes in his last six starts at Thunder Valley -- good for the second-best average finish in that stretch among drivers in this weekend's field.

Sleeper

In his last six Bristol starts, Blaney has one top five and four top 10s. He has led 439 laps in that stretch -- the second-most laps out front in that span. He has also wrecked out of two of those races. Given his standing, he is the ultimate boom-or-bust pick.
