TOP FIVE DRIVERS

FOOD CITY 500 from BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

The number #5 driver to watch has won two races here, #2 Brad Keselowski. Brad has those two wins in just 12 starts! He has four total Top 5’s. Brad is not off to a great start this season like his teammate Joey Logano, but this could be just the place for Brad to return to his Top 5 ways. 

The #4 driver to watch is a Top 5 ranked short track driver, #19 Carl Edwards. Carl has 23 starts, three wins, and just five Top 5’s. Carl’s last win here was this race in 2014. He a Top 5 ranked short track driver and 5th hottest over the last six weeks.

My #3 driver is the hottest driver on the circuit, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has won the last two cup races and more Top 5’s this season than any other driver. Here at Bristol Kyle has 21 starts, five wins, and eight Top 5’s. His team, Joe Gibbs Racing, has won seven of the last 14 races here, and four of those were won by Kyle.

 My #2 driver has three straight Top 5’s here, #48 Jimmie Johnson. Jimmie has 26 starts with one win and ten Top 5 finishes. His short track program has been a little off but with his three straight Top 5’s and him being #2 hottest over the last six races, look for him to right things in Thunder Valley.

 The #1 pick won the last two summer night races here, #22 Joey Logano.  Joey has 14 starts, those two wins, and three Top 5’s. He is my #1 ranked short track driver and is #6 hottest over the last six weeks.
