William Byron – At Bristol I think William Byron will be a mid to high-teens driver. If attrition gets high I think he might finish even better. This spring, when he made his Bristol debut he really didn’t do anything special. He started 11th, had a 15th place average running position and finished 18th. Last year in the Xfintiy Series at Bristol he had results of 12th and 22nd.
Bubba Wallace – Bubba Wallace looked good this spring at Bristol and on Saturday night among his tier I think he’ll be one of the better options. This spring he really got up on the wheel in the final segment and legitimately led 6 laps. Additionally, he earned the 17th best driver rating and finished 10th in Stage #2. In the Xfinity Series he’s been respectable here. In 3 of his last 5 races here in that lower division he’s finished 12th or better. Realistically on Saturday night I would set his base line fantasy value as being a high-teens driver and then hoping for the best.
Trevor Bayne – Trevor Bayne will once again be piloting the #6 at Bristol. He’s run well here and I think he has decent upside. This spring he didn’t run that well, but in the four races prior to that he finished in the top 12. This spring when the checkered flag waved he finished 5 laps down in 24th. On lap 155 while he was running around 20th he spun and got a good amount of damage. After that his race was essentially over. In the four events prior to that he had an 8.8 average finish, a 15.0 average running position and the 14th best driver rating. In summer 2017 he had a strong showing. He finished 7th, had a 14th place average running position and earned the 14th best driver rating. In spring 2017 he had a solid race. He finished 11th, had a 12th place average running position and earned the 14th best driver rating. In the three races prior to that he had results of 12th, 5th and 15th.
