The 2019 Food City 500 is taking place this Sunday, April 7, at one of NASCAR's most legendary tracks: Bristol Motor Speedway. With a field including almost all of the top drivers in this year's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, it should be a highly-contested battle for the checkered flag.

Let's take a look at some drivers to keep on eye on for your fantasy team this week.

Kyle Busch

Until he proves otherwise, it's hard to keep Kyle Busch off this list in any given week. The guy has been the most dominant driver on the circuit this year, bar none. Though he did have his worst finish of the season last week, he's still been a killer at Bristol throughout his career. Busch has won this race four times, so it marks a perfect spot for a bounce-back week from him in a year in which he's averaging a 3.7 finishing position.

Kevin Harvick

Harvick might not have a win this season, but he's been in contention nearly every week. He rides into Bristol on a six-race streak of Top-10 finishes. In his last seven appearances at Bristol, Harvick has finished 10th or better in all of them. Not to mention, he also grabbed a win at this event in 2005.

Kyle Busch

Similar to Harvick, this Busch has yet to win a race this season. Although, his career-long dominance at Bristol shouldn't be overlooked. He won this race four times from 2002-06. Despite not yet winning a race this season, Busch comes into Bristol having finished ninth or better in five of his last six races.
