The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series heads to Bristol for some short track racing on Sunday with green flag scheduled for 2 p.m. ET.

Busch is the favorite for a reason, having dominated ‘The Last Great Colosseum’ over the course of his career. He leads all active drivers with seven wins, including two of the past three races. Additionally, he’s stacked up 10 top-five and 15 top-10 finishes in his 27 starts at the track.

Behind Busch in the standings is his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Denny Hamlin, who has already won two races and secured his spot in the Cup Series Playoffs behind new crew chief Chris Gabehart. Hamlin will look to make it back-to-back wins for the third time in his career on Sunday at a track where he’s won before. The No. 11 driver has 14-to-1 odds to claim the checkered flag. 

If you’re looking for some value similar to Hamlin, look no further than Kyle’s older brother Kurt Busch at 14-to-1. The veteran NASCAR Cup series champ has been hot to start the season, finishing in the top 10 in all but two races including two top fives. He shares a similar dominance at Bristol to his brother Kyle, with six wins. Of course, there’s a little brotherly motivation in that if Kurt wins on Sunday, he’ll tie his brother for the active wins lead at the track. 

Here’s how the Busch brothers, Hamlin and the rest of the field stack up on Sunday.

Our Pick: Ryan Blaney

We’re going with Ryan Blaney at 12-to-1 to win this one. Blaney’s two Penske teammates, Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski, have already seen Victory Lane and punched their tickets to the playoffs. You’ll bet Roger Penske wants to get his third car in there. 

Motivation isn’t the only reason we like him though. Despite not winning pole for Sunday’s race, Blaney set a track record in qualifying by running a 14.528 second lap time. Translation: he has a blazing fast Ford.
