Note: I have plans over the weekend (Going to a hockey game Sunday, and my girlfriend will possibly be going in for surgery around that time, probably monday), so if I give no Monday Morning roundup, that is the reason why.
Starter: Kyle Busch
Reserve: Jeff Gordon
If anything can bust Kyle Busch out of this slump, its Bristol. If he has a bad race here, he is going to have a bad season by his standards. Jeff Gordon is the reserve driver, since he has an excellent qualifying record here (9.7 average starting spot)
Starters: Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Reserves: Clint Bowyer, Marcos Ambrose
Kevin Harvick has been good at Bristol, and even with his crappy seasons, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has performed well there. They are my picks. Clint Bowyer and Marcos Ambrose are my reserves not because they qualify well, but just in case I want to make a switch, as they have also been fairly good at Bristol.
Starter: Scott Speed
Reserve: Mike Bliss
C-Listers do not have a good average finish at this track, so I will go with who has been having the hot start to the season, Scott Speed. Mike Bliss is the reserve, since he has the best average finish out of the C-Listers in the last 10 races (despite him running only 3), but doesn't run in as good of a team as Speed and Red Bull. I realize both have to qualify on time, but Speed has been an excellent qualifier at Bristol, so I am confident he will not miss this race.
