Good Picks

 

With all this said, let’s get to those who should be on your radar.

 

Kyle Busch – Busch is a threat no matter what track the Nationwide Series is at as he always runs well. In his eight starts at Nashville, he has completed 97.1 percent of the laps and has won once, two top fives, three top 10s, and an average finish of 15.4

 

Brad Keselowski – Keselowski is yet another king of the picks lately as he’s run well this year with Penske Racing. In his six starts at Nashville, he has completed 70.3 percent of the laps and has won once, four top fives, four top 10s, and an average finish of 14.7

 

Carl Edwards – Edwards is like Busch, in where you pick him no matter what track you’re on in the Nationwide Series. He is also good at the concrete tracks as the majority of his wins have come on them. In his nine starts at Nashville, he has completed all of the laps and has three wins, eight top fives, eight top 10s, and an average finish of 4.0.

 

Jason Leftler – Jason Leftler looks to be the best non-Cup driver when you combine the points earned at the last two or three races at Nashville. In his 10 starts at Nashville, he has completed 85.4 percent of the laps and has a win, four top fives, six top 10s, and an average finish of 14.5

 

 

Watch for:

 

Justin Allgaier – Allgaier has turned a lot of heads lately with how well he’s been running, including the win last weekend at Bristol. In his two starts at Nashville last year, he finished 29th and 13th. His ARCA Series stats don’t look much better, however, as he only finished in the top 10 once in his four starts.

 

Scott Wimmer – Wimmer won at Nashville in 2008 for Richard Childress Racing and looks to do well again this year with JR Motorsports. This weekend, he will have a new sponsor on the car as Army Wives has jumped on board. In his 11 starts at Nashville, he has completed 87.5 percent of the laps and has a win, four top fives, eight top 10s, and an average finish of 12.5
