The guys over at WagerTalk TV had a very juicy discussion about the upcoming 2020 Food City 500 (Supermarket Heroes 500) race and the drivers who are going to burn rubber at Bristol Motor Speedway. Steve Merril sounded thrilled over a sleeper in Matt DiBenedetto. Merril noted that DiBenedetto had done well in lesser cars before, and with a better one now, he believes the Team Wood Brothers driver could pull off a surprise this coming Sunday. DiBenedetto, who finished 15th at the Alsco Uniforms 500 in Charlotte last Thursday, has a 17.9 average finish in 10 races at Bristol Motor Speedway. Last year, DiBenedetto finished second there during the 2019 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race.

YouTuber William Blackwell thinks that Busch is going to be a force this weekend in Bristol. As Blackwell mentioned in his analysis, Busch is a strong driver whenever he’s in Bristol, a claim that’s backed up by rock-solid stats. In 38 career starts at Bristol Motor Speedway, Busch has managed to collect six wins, 12 top 5s, and 20 top 10s. Busch has finished inside the top 10 in each of his last three races in Bristol, including a win at the 2018 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race.

|Ryan Simpson||Kurt Busch|
Resident editor Ryan Simpson is also a believer of Kurt Busch in Bristol and for a very good reason. Apart from the fact that he’s the second-winningest driver at Bristol Motor Speedway – behind his younger brother, Kyle – he’s also been fantastic of late, sans a victory. Kurt has finished no worse than seventh in four of his last five starts. He went fifth at the Alsco Uniform 500 last Thursday and seventh at the Coca Cola 600 last week.
