Tonight’s Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol should be a high-intensity affair, with playoff spots on the line. However, the real competition should be up front, with many drivers in contention to win, especially with race favorite Kyle Busch qualifying in 31st.

Bristol often features lots of carnage, and one mistake can set a driver down one lap or more. That puts this race on the higher side of randomness, so we should tailor our betting approach accordingly.

I have one head-to-head matchup where I like the underdog value, especially in a race as unpredictable as Bristol. As more lines get posted, and after inspection takes place in the afternoon, I’ll update this with more prop bets.
