What Is At Stake?
With four unique winners through the first six races, securing victory at Bristol means an almost place in the postseason. Stage points are also significant, and the legendary bullring could deliver some unexpected outcomes.

Brad Keselowski scored his second win of the year after having a dominant showing at Martinsville. The 2012 winner scored successes in 2011 and 2012, but hasn’t won at Bristol since then. Can he take on the momentum to change that?

Kevin Harvick is currently third in the standings but has yet to win a race this season. The 2015 champion has two wins in 30 races in the track, but his form has improved with seven consecutive top 10 finishes. Bristol may 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 out Kurt Busch. The elder Busch brother is second among active drivers with five wins in the bullring. The 2004 winner is also the latest winner at the track, having ensured an unexpected victory last summer.

Favorites To Win The 2019 O’Reilly Auto Parts 500
With seven wins at Bristol, together with five of those coming at the spring race, championship leader Kyle Busch is the obvious favorite. Following a solid start to the season, the driver of the #18 Joe Gibbs Racing car has yet to finish outside the top 10 through six races. Busch includes two race wins and a series-leading four point victories to his title.

Joey Logano heads a three-way tie to the next most wins at the trail among active drivers. The reigning Monster Energy Cup Series winner has two wins in the track, his latest victory being back-to-back wins at the summertime back in 2014 and 2015. Logano has seven top 10 finishes in the last 10 races in Bristol, and even though the #22 may not be the most dominant driver at the monitor, he still figures among the favorites.
