I like the racing at Bristol! In case you haven’t noticed I like all of the racing. I’ve heard and read a lot about the possibility of Kyle Busch sweeping a third consecutive weekend at Thunder Valley and whether or not it is likely to happen.
Of course it is likely to happen. Kyle is a near lock to win on Saturday. He is too good a driver in too good of equipment to not win. A lot of other Cup guys will be racing too but let’s face facts. They won’t win because they aren’t in JGR stuff.
He has 5 career Cup wins at Bristol and the JGR Cup equipment is good, really goo, this year. Unlike Xfinity, where he is basically battling his teammates for a win, he will be competing against 10-12 cars who have a chance to win.
So, will be sweep? No, I don’t think so. He’s dominant and he will be up front but I predict a wreck will take him out of contention early in the race. Just too many variables at play in Bristol to allow for a 3rd consecutive Cup win.
However, the win won’t be far from home. I’m predicting Carl Edwards will drive the #19 to Victory Sunday giving JGR it’s 4th win of the season and locking their 3rd car into the chase.
Let me know what you think.
