Fantasy Preview: Bristol 8/23

The Sprint Cup Series returns to Bristol Motor Speedway for Saturday's Irwin Tools Night Race.  Below are my picks for the race.

Tier A
Kyle Busch
The Busch Brothers are money whenever they go to Bristol.  After seeing how Kyle did in Friday's Nationwide race (and Thursday's truck race), chances are good that he could be standing in victory lane following the race.

Kurt Busch

Tier B
Carl Edwards
Edwards won the first race at Bristol this season, and he seemed to be good when the lights came on.  He'll be looking to prove that he can still win with Roush-Fenway Racing following the announcement of his move to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2015.

Brad Keselowski
Keselowski is always good at Bristol, and he picked up his first Truck Series victory in Thursday's race.  Keselowski could easily pick up his fourth win of the season on Saturday night.

Aric Almirola
Marcos Ambrose

Tier C
Austin Dillon
Dillon finished 11th at Bristol earlier in the year, and he should be strong Saturday.  He qualified 26th, the same place he started earlier in the season.  I expect Dillon to finish towards the front on Saturday.
