The NASCAR circuit takes a trip to the famous Bristol Motor Speedway for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race this weekend. With all the big names racing for the checkered flag, let's take a look at some drivers to watch out for when building your fantasy team.

Kyle Larson
Kyle Larson had one of his best races of the year last week, finishing in third. He was also trending up in the weeks before, grabbing a top-five finish in four out of his last seven races. Larson has had some success at Bristol, where he finished in second place in both of the races on this track in 2018.

Joey Logano
Joey Logano might not be racing his best going into Bristol this week, finishing outside the top 10 for three consecutive weeks now. Although, similar to Larson, Logano has experienced some success at Bristol in the past. He has won this specific event two times prior and finished fourth at this event in 2018. It goes back even further for Logano, finishing inside the top 10 in eight of his last 10 races at Bristol.

Kurt Busch
Kurt Busch is the reigning champion of this race and has won it twice in his career. In the race at Bristol earlier this season, Busch placed second. In his last 10 appearances at the Tennessee track, Busch has finished fifth or better 10 times.
