Kyle Busch has the hot hand atop the Monster Energy Cup standings. Last week’s win at Texas was his first of the season. But he has been in the top three in six consecutive starts. Joe Logano is also off to an impressive start. He has finished out of the top seven in just one race this year. As a result, he is second in the standings. Kevin Harvick was the hottest betting on NASCAR pick going. He won three races in a row earlier in the season. Currently fourth in the standings he is generated heavy wagering activity.

Bristol Motor Speedway
Bristol Motor Speedway is one of the top favorites on the NASCAR circuit. Best known for its August night race it also hosts an annual spring day event. For those who believe “Rubbin’ is Racin’” Bristol epitomizes the adage. With a length of just 0.533 there is no margin for error. Turn banks that range from 26 to 30 degrees add to the excitement. Fights and heated emotions are par for course at Bristol. Jimmie Johnson won the Foody City 500 spring race last year. It was the second time that Johnson won this event.
The Seven time Cup champion Johnson is slumping. At Texas last week he finished a horrible 35th place. For the third time this year Johnson placed 27th or worse. He has only one top ten finish on the season. That ninth-place run took place at California. Johnson is now hearing whispers that his career may be on the downside. His last Monster Energy Cup was just two seasons ago. But the severe drop in his machine-like consistency has alarmed gamblers. At Bristol Johnson has two-wins in 32 career starts with an average finish of 13.66.
Busch and Harvick
Kyle Busch has had strong betting on NASCAR success at Bristol. Busch has 25 career starts with six wins and 14 top ten finishes. His win total there is best among active drivers. Kevin Harvick has posted a consistent record at the Tennessee Half Mile. In 34 starts he has an average finish of 13.44 and 17 top ten runs. Bristol has seen Harvick take the checkers two times. Both Busch and Harvick appear to be on a collision course this weekend. Not to mention the top two contenders for the Monster Energy Cup.
Busch and Logano
Kurt Busch doesn’t garner the same attention as his brother Kyle. Yet Kurt is currently eighth in the overall standings. He is coming off a season best finish of seventh at Texas. Bristol has been a good venue for Kurt Busch. With 34 career starts he has posted five wins and 17 top ten finishes. Career wise there he has an average finish if 14.85. Joey Logano has had his share of online sportsbook success on the short track. Logano has two wins and seven top tens there.
Matchup to Watch
Kyle Busch is fully justified as the betting on NASCAR favorite. But Kevin Harvick is likely to be breathing down his neck. No sport should have a more heated showdown this weekend.
