NRA Night Race Predictions
The NASCAR Monster Energy Series returns to night racing tonight for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. Here’s the drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is favored to win this race, as he has +275 odds. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (+500), Joey Logano (+750), Martin Truex Jr. (+900) and Kyle Larson (+900). The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race is set to take place today at 7:30PM ET from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee.
52101 Kyle Busch +275
We have been able to pick the last three NASCAR winners and Busch definitely seems like he could be the guy tonight. Busch has been very impressive at Bristol in his career, winning eight times in 28 races. His driver rating of 101.9 at the track is best in today’s field. He is a three-time winner of this very race and he comes into tonight having not win in his last nine races. I like Busch to end that drought today to complete the season sweep at Bristol.
52111 Erik Jones +1800
Jones is a nice option today. He has competed at Bristol five times in his career and he has a 95.3 driver rating at the track. Jones was fifth in this race last year and second in 2017. Jones has finished in the top five in four of his last five races as well, so he is building some momentum for his first win of the year. With the postseason approaching quickly, Jones really needs a win to secure his spot in the Chase.
52109 Kurt Busch +2000
Bristol has been the home to the Busch family. While Kyle has eight wins at this track, Kurt has six. His driver rating at the track is 91.5. He is also the defending champion of this very race and finished fifth in 2017. Busch has a win this year in Kentucky to already secure his spot in the postseason, but he needs another win to really improve his chances at a title. Coming off four straight races outside the top 5, I expect Kurt Busch to have a great run tonight.
