Kyle Busch has the best chance of winning
Kyle Busch is one of the main favorites to win the upcoming race at Bristol. Nevertheless, there is no guarantee that Busch will be able to secure a place in the top 12. A poor start to the playoffs jeopardized his placement in the second round. In the first two races, Busch did not become famous. He first had an accident in Darlington and dropped out of the race.
The previous weekend at Richmond he had a good position and led a solid part of the race. He had an advantage of almost 39 laps. He was then fined for speeding. That prevented him from achieving a better placement in the race. In the end, he finished the race in ninth place. His colleagues from Joe Gibbs Racing achieved much better placements. All three runners-up at Richmond were from this team. Busch could have easily finished that race in a much better position. This is how he endangered his placement in the next round of the playoffs.
Kyle Busch won eight times at Bristol
Busch is currently in tenth place in the playoffs. He has only 8 points more than the last driver who is outside the second round of the playoffs. Busch has reason to be optimistic that he could still find himself in the next round. So far, he has won as many as eight times on the mentioned track. He started 31 times in total and finished almost half of the race among the five best drivers.
It should be noted that in the last six races held arBristol, Busch has won three times. He once achieved a second position. All this gives him the right to hope for a high ranking. If he achieves a placement among the four best drivers, he will be in the next round of the playoffs. On the other hand, it would not surprise anyone if he recorded a new victory in Bristol. That would then be his ninth victory. A new triumph would give him an extra dose of confidence before the resumption of the playoffs.
