The team over at WSN is going with Kyle Busch, pointing to the fact that he has won seven separate times at this legendary track.

The Sports Chat Place staff is taking Kurt Busch. Kurt won his last race at Bristol and had won four races there from 2002-2006. They also make note that he has finished in the top-10 in 10 of his last 19 appearances on the track.

Kenny Bruce might not be able to pick just one driver, but he is picking just one family. Bruce doesn't know if he likes Kyle or Kurt Busch more given both of their historical dominance on this well-known track, so he's going with both, or either one.

Overall, the three highlighted experts are split between Kyle and Kurt Busch. One expert going with each and the last being split between the two.

New customers will get 40/1 on any of the Final Four teams to win the tournament.
