I’m still bitter about the 2018 Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. I had a big bet on Kyle Larson to win the race, and with eight laps to go Larson appeared to be pulling away from second-place Kyle Busch.

But unfortunately for me, Larson got loose and allowed Busch to slip under him with five laps to go, costing Larson the victory and me a winning bet.

This track owes me more than one, so let’s dig into this weekend’s props. Below are my NASCAR Props Challenge picks for Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

1. The Busch brothers won both races at Bristol last year. Which one will have the higher finish on Sunday?

Kyle Busch is my top-ranked driver heading into this weekend’s race, so I already lean little bro here.

In terms of betting odds from the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, Kyle is listed at +250 compared to Kurt’s +1400, making this an easy pick for me.

Answer: Kyle Busch

2. The last four spring races at Bristol have seen an average of 17.25 lead changes. O/U 17.5 lead changes?
