The Xfinity Series heads to Bristol this weekend, but without any top tier cup drivers on the entry list. This makes for an interesting Saturday slate for the running of the Alsco 300. Due to that fact the salaries have taken a large increase, but there will be a lot more options this weekend lineup wise without a large chunk of salary taken up by a cup series driver.
Justin Allgaier – Since the 3rd race this season at Atlanta the #7 JRM Camaro have struggled for luck and momentum. They head into Bristol which is where they could turn their season around. In the previous 4 races at Bristol Justin has an average finish of 6th place and 122 laps led. He is a bit cheaper on price this weekend and I don’t mind being over here on Allgaier with no cup drivers in the field.
Christopher Bell – 2 straight top 5 finishes, Bell and the #20 JGR Toyota Supra have been a bit quiet the previous few weeks as his teammate Kyle Busch has been on a tear. Bell only has 2 starts at Bristol and his first ended in a DNF which has his average finish a bit skewed. He has led 53 laps at the concrete half mile which has him as one of the top plays this weekend but you will have to do so with a fairly hefty price tag.
Michael Annett – What a season Annett is having with crew chief Travis Mack. Started out by winning Daytona and have not looked back since. Last year in the fall he finished in the 7th position and with the roll he is on currently I can see him duplicating that this weekend.
Ross Chastain – Ross’ price has only risen up $200 to $8,000 this week. With 3 straight top 15 finishes at Bristol and seeing he has top 10 potential, I really like him this weekend. His lowest finish of the season so far is 18th and I don’t see that getting any worse this weekend at Bristol with no cup drivers in the field.
Alex Labbe – Bit of a underdog pick here but if you look at his $6,100 salary, he can for sure provide some solid value this weekend. He has 2 career starts at Bristol both came last year. In the spring he brought home a solid 11th place finish, and in the fall he finished 23rd. I wouldn’t be afraid to roll the dice with Alex this weekend.
Jeremy Clements – Another solid value option this week is Jeremy Clements. Statistically this is one of his better tracks and with no cup drivers in the field he has a great opportunity to score points and get a top 10 finish and for $6,900 he seems to be the best driver in that range to score points.
