Edwards, Kyle Busch favored as NASCAR hits Bristol
With just three races remaining before the Chase, points are at a premium for the nine drivers battling for the last six positions in the postseason. For these drivers, this Saturday night's race at Bristol could be a blessing or a curse considering fewer than 100 points separate seventh-place
The high banks of Bristol have a reputation for producing plenty of action and hot tempers, even though in the last few years since the surface was repaved the action has somewhat cooled off. One thing remains the same when you're looking to build a team that can tame the concrete beast -- qualifying, qualifying, and qualifying. Not only does a good run on Friday night give a team the best choice of pit stalls on a very tight pit road, but considering the track is just over half-a-mile long starting in the back makes it nearly impossible to stay on the lead lap all night.
For a driver to be successful at Bristol he needs a good dose of luck to avoid the number of wrecks we are likely to see. For fantasy owners, the best you can do is put the best team together that you can and then keep your fingers crossed one of your picks isn't the unlucky one caught up in someone else's mess. So which drivers will give you the best chance at surviving a wild night at Bristol? Read this week's favorites, sleepers and longshots to find out.
