Clint Bowyer (+2,000)
Looking for a worthy sleeper this week? How about Clint Bowyer? The 38-year-old veteran has been in outstanding form of late, notching top-7 finishes in five of his last eight starts, including runner-up showings at Sonoma and Daytona. Bowyer will look to keep the momentum going at Bristol, the site of his second-place finish last April. He loves racing in this particular venue as he has three top-1os in his last four Bristol races.
Jimmie Johnson (+1,500)
Another driver who’s primed for a huge performance this week is Jimmie Johnson. He loves racing at Bristol, nabbing top-10 finishes in five of his last six starts there. During that span, Johnson has notched four Top 5s. The seven-time NASCAR Cup champion will be looking to complete the season sweep at Bristol after winning the Food City 500 race last April.
Haas has been playing some superb golf of late, finishing tied for 12th at last week’s Dean & DeLuca Invitational.
Matt Kenseth (+1,200)
It’s now or never for Matt Kenseth who needs a win this week to make this year’s playoffs. Fortunately for Kenseth, Bristol has been a good hunting ground for him throughout his career. Kenseth has won at this venue a whopping four times. No driver has led more laps here in the last 10 races than Kenseth so expect a spirited showing from the 45-year-old this coming Saturday.
