Favorites to Win the 2019 Food City 300

If you are in New Jersey, visit 888Sport to bet on the outside picks and favorites to win at Food City 300.

Kyle Busch

Kyle Busch is the clear-cut favorite to win.

An eight-time winner at Bristol Motor Speedway in the Cup Series, he has enjoyed even more success in Xfinity.

Busch is a nine-time winner at The Coliseum in the second-tier national series.

The Joe Gibbs driver could add another victory to his count as he inches closer to the 100 wins mark.

His first win at Bristol in the Xfinity Series came back in 2006.

Since then, the 2009 champion has gone on to add victories in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Busch scored sweeps in 2011 and 2013.

It will be his sixth – and therefore penultimate – Xfinity Series start of 2019.

He scored three wins in the other five starts.

During his last outing, at Watkins Glen, Busch started from the pole but retired due to a suspension failure.

Christopher Bell

Christopher Bell won at Bristol earlier this year.

It was his first career victory at the track after scoring a second-place finish last year.

The Joe Gibbs driver climbed to the front during the final stage after a relatively slow start.

Bell has been in great form this season, with rumors linking him to a potential Cup Series seat.

Having some additional motivation will likely help him this weekend.

Bell is second in points with five wins, 14 top 5 and 15 top 10 finishes.

He is coming off a sequence of five consecutive finishes inside the top 3.

While Christopher Bell won the April race at Bristol, Justin Allgaier was clearly the man to beat.

Justin Allgaier

The Xfinity Series veteran led an impressive 138 laps and swept both stages.

However, a brake failure during the final third of the race put him out of contention.

Allgaier’s first Xfinity Series top 5 came at Bristol in 2009.

His first win in the series also came at the half-mile track a year later.

While he has not returned to victory lane ever since the JR Motorsports driver continues to do well at Bristol.

Allgaier has eight top 5 finishes in 17 starts, including four consecutive in the night race.

He is currently fourth in points but has yet to win a race in 2019.

Outside Picks for the 2019 Food City 300

Tyler Reddick

Tyler Reddick started and finished second in the April race.

It was by far his strongest showing at Bristol, a track at which he had never finished inside the top 5 before.

The Richard Childress driver led the second-most laps with 61.

Reddick has been fairly consistent at Bristol, his worst finish in three races being the 11th place.

He also scored a pole-position in the Truck Series.

The reigning Xfinity Series champion is back to his early-season form.

Reddick had a poor run, at least by his standards, of only one top 10 in three races.

He now has five consecutive top 5 finishes.

The 2018 champion is the current points leader with two wins, 16 top 5 and 18 top 10 finishes.

Cole Custer

Cole Custer scored the pole for the April race and had a strong start, leading 25 laps early on.

However, as the race progressed, he eventually dropped down the order.

The Stewart-Haas driver finished a solid third after working on a late-race comeback.

Custer has two pole-positions in his last three starts at Bristol.

He has only missed out on the top 10 once in five starts at The Coliseum.

Custer is third in points and his five wins are tied for the series’ lead.

John Hunter Nemechek

If you are looking for a good dark-horse, then John Hunter Nemechek is an interesting pick.

The Xfinity Series rookie finished fifth in April.

It was Nemechek’s fourth top 5 finish in seven career starts at Bristol.

He had three third-place finishes in five Truck Series starts at The Bullring.

The GMS Racing driver sits tenth in points in what has been a fairly solid rookie season.

John Hunter Nemechek has three top 5 and 11 top 10 finishes in 21 starts.
