Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race Picks
The 2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Series waves the green flag under the lights tonight for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. Here are the drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. are co-favorites this week, as each has 9/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Kyle Larson (5/1) and Brad Keselowski (17/2). The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race takes place tonight at 7:30PM ET from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee.
Kyle Busch is looking to complete a weekend sweep at Bristol after winning the Xfinity Series race on Friday night. Bristol has been one of Busch’s best tracks as well. He holds five wins in his career and has a driver rating of 99.3 there. Busch should have a strong run and will likely be the car to beat again. Look for Busch to make a strong push entering the playoffs.
Joey Logano is a two-time winner at Bristol and he comes into tonight with 12/1 odds. I think those are great odds for him. Logano has finished in the top 10 at this track seven times in 17 races. Logano needs some momentum entering the Chase and he can get it tonight at one of his better tracks. He finished fifth here earlier this year and has a top-10 rating at this track in the field.
Matt Kenseth is another driver with 12/1 odds tonight that has a lot of success at Bristol. Kenseth is a three-time winner at this track and his driver rating of 100.2 is the best in the field. Kenseth finished fourth at this track during the spring race and he is still seeking his first win of the 2017 season. If it is going to happen anywhere, it seems like Bristol is a likely option.
