Driver Rankings for Bristol


The NASCAR Cup Series travels back to Bristol Motor Speedway this week for a race under the lights. This will be the third race at the track this season so the teams will have a lot of information for the setups in their cars. This is also the third race in the first round of the playoffs. That means the intensity will be cranked up and it could get crazy in the final laps of the race. The Bristol Night Race can be seen Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

I will be using the information from the first race at Bristol and the All-Star Race for my Driver Rankings this week. I also factored in the Driver Rankings and Green Flag Speed on all of the short tracks this season. Momentum is important so I factored in the Driver Rankings from the two playoffs races. This data should lead to an accurate prediction for the race.
