Justin Allgaier has been very strong over his time coming to Bristol. Last year he led 148 laps when finishing 9th and in 2021 he also led the most laps at 92. Before that in the fall of 2020? Also the laps led leader at 126. You get the picture. Just looking at finishes doesn’t tell the entire story with him and I think he has a great chance to put himself in the winners circle to start the playoffs. This has been a solid track for JR Motorsports in general and Sam Mayer has finished top-10 in both of his appearances here with 49 laps led combined. Daniel Hemric is a solid mid range option who has ran up front at Bristol recently as well. Jeb Burton hasn’t been great here, but does have a top-10 to his credit and I like the speed we have seen from him in 2023. Jeremy Clements has been consistently a 10-15th place car at Bristol and is a very cheap price this weekend along with Anthony Alfredo who has been 13th and 6th in his two Bristol appearances.
