Following a weekend in Texas, NASCAR heads to Bristol Motor Speedway to the 2019 Cup Series season’s eighth race.

Sunday’s 500-lap Food City 500 marks the second race on a half-mile track this season, but Bristol’s unique concrete layout with exorbitant banking is actually more like Dover’s one-mile track than Martinsville. Kevin Harvick, kyle Busch and Chase Elliott have graced victory lane the three races. Busch is currently Sunday’s race favorite at 5/2 odds at the Westgate SuperBook, together with Harvick and Elliott priced at 12/1 and 14/1, respectively. Busch, who has finished in the top 10 in each of NASCAR’s seven races this year, leads active drivers with seven wins at Bristol. In total, Busch has listed 10 top-five and 15 top-10 finishes. Even though Busch is hot this season, Harvick is not, particularly by his lofty standards. He’s led just 133 laps and he has led laps in two races. He’s led just 22 laps over the past four races there but has finished inside the top 10 in every. Considering the stiff betting matchups oddsmakers have Harvick in –from Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Kyle Larson — it is tough to trust Harvick with the rules package used this week. Rules package results In Bristol, the Cup Series will operate the 2019 rules package tailored for short tracks (less than 1.33 miles) and street courses. A 1.17-inch tapered spacer will be used, with motors expected to create about 750 horsepower. No aero ducts will be utilized. This weekend’s configuration of the 2019 rules package is going to be used at 14 occasions in total this year. The 1.17-inch tapered spacer was initially used this year at 1-mile ISM Raceway on March 10 in Phoenix in a race won by Kyle Busch.
