NASCAR Fantasy Picks for Bass Pro Shops Night Race

Brad Keselowski took home the checkered flag in last weekend's Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway in Virginia. Now the NASCAR world turns its attention toward the Bass Pro Shops Night Race in Bristol, Tennessee.

With Saturday's next NASCAR Cup Series race rapidly approaching with a 7:30 p.m. EST start time, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your fantasy lineup to win the Bass Pro Shops Night Race this year.

Bass Pro Shops Night Race Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this weekend's Bass Pro Shops Night Race with five or more appearances at the Bristol Motor Speedway track unless otherwise noted.

Kyle Busch
Kyle Busch has been great on this track. Over his 30 career performances at Bristol Motor Speedway, Busch boasts the most wins (8), best winning rate (26.67 percent), top-5 finishing rate (43.33 percent), top-10 finishing rate (60.00 percent) and the most laps led (2,433) by nearly a 1,000-lap edge over Matt Kenseth's second-highest mark of 1,583.

Chase Elliott
Chase Elliott has a much smaller career sample size at Bristol than Busch, but what he's achieved in his nine total appearances here can't be ignored. Even though he has yet to take the checkered flag here, Elliott boasts the best average finishing position (12.67) and the fifth-best top-5 finishing rate (33.33 percent).

Clint Bowyer
Clint Bowyer has 29 career performances under his belt in a similar sample size to Busch, and while he may not have the same sort of overall stripes at Bristol, arguably no one has been better in their last seven respective races than Bowyer. Bowyer is much more of a long shot to win it all, with +2100 odds according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but does boast the best average finishing position (7.29) over his last seven races here, with six top-10 finishes and two top-5 finishes to go along with it.
