The 2019 NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the seventh round of the season.
Cup Series driver Kyle Busch won’t be in the field. The driver of the #18 has three wins and one second place in four starts. Busch’s absence means that the battle for the win is wide open.
This race is part of Xfinity’s Dash4Cash. As such, Cup Series regulars with more than 50 starts over the past five years won’t be allowed to compete.
What: Alsco 300
Where: Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN
When: Saturday, April 6th at 1:00 PM EST

The Bristol round brings some significant changes, as it marks the start of the Dash4Cash.
This means that Cup Series regulars won’t be allowed to race. That is also the case for the next three rounds.
Points leader Tyler Reddick has yet to win a race. It’s hard to imagine the current champion missing out on a playoff spot.
Reddick, however, might want some additional insurance. Securing a win early on is even more important for drivers sitting close to the 12th place cutoff.
Christopher Bell has never won at Bristol in the Xfinity Series.
The driver of the #20 car saw his strong run last spring come to an end following a crash. Bell has led an impressive 349 laps this season.
That’s almost as many laps as the other Xfinity regulars combined (352 laps). With four stage wins and one race victory to his name, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver is the early favorite.
Justin Allgaier has the best average over the last four races at the track among active drivers.
The #7 driver has three consecutive top 5 finishes at Bristol and an impressive six over the last seven.
Bristol also brings some special memories to Allgaier. His first career victory in the series came at the track, back in 2010.
The JR Motorsports driver is one of the strongest contenders for this round.
Cole Custer scored the pole-position last spring. Custer has three consecutive top 10 finishes at Bristol, and five in six career starts at the track.
The driver of the #00 car has one win in 2019 and has led 80 laps this season.
Tyler Reddick has never won at Bristol, but don’t count the reigning champion out.
Reddick is second among active drivers with an average finish of 9 over the last four races at the track.
The driver of the #2 car is riding a streak of three consecutive top 5 finishes this season.
Michael Annett is a real outsider pick. The Xfinity Series veteran scored his first career victory, winning the season opener at Daytona.
Off to a solid start, the JR Motorsports driver sits fourth in the standings. Annett has four top 10 finishes in six races.
The driver of the #1 car has an average finish of 12.5 at Bristol since his return to the Xfinity Series in 2017.
The odds will be updated as they are made available.
