NASCAR at Bristol: Vegas odds, fantasy advice, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch

Darlington dedicating suite towers to the Earnhardts

Crew chief Shane Huffman has been fined $5,000 and suspended from this weekend's activities at Bristol Motor Speedway.

And when we say triple, we mean "triple dominance" in all three NASCAR events with a win at the World's Fastest Half Mile.

Yet another weather delay Wednesday at Bristol Motor Speedway merely delayed the inevitable once again in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Making the regular season points race even more important is that the points leader will receive 15 additional championship points to start the playoff round. Truex qualified third, won the first stage and finished eighth overall.

Earlier this season at Bristol, Jimmie Johnson, who entered the race at 10/1 odds, passed Kevin Harvick with 21 laps remaining and held on for the win.

"Once I got back there, nobody had run up high", Busch said.

Truex's 35 playoff points has been the result of winning a series-most four races (five playoff points for each win) and claiming series-high 15 stage victories (one playoff point for each stage win).

"It was a lot of fun to come through the field like that", Busch said. That's what it's all about.

"I can't say enough about all these guys on this Banfield Pet Hospital Tundra, it was awesome". We made some fine-tune adjustments to it. ". She was really good all day long". Truex now has a 129-point lead over second-place Kyle Larson and if he leaves Bristol with 121-point lead, he will be guaranteed the championship (unless he suffers major penalties from NASCAR). Crafton told the media after the race the late caution flag on the wreck between Self and Haley was something he didn't want to see. "One thing I've done, I've finished second to Kyle way too many times here". ". We've got nothing to hang our head about". All 16 drivers who make the playoff field will have their points reset to 2,000 after the final regular season race of the year at Richmond but not every driver will start the playoff round with the same number of points as this is where the championship points come into play.

Other stars to watch in the Camping World Truck Series event include second place driver Johnny Sauter, Matt Crafton, Chase Briscoe, Ryan Truex, Ben Rhodes, Cindric, John Hunter Nemecheck and Grant Enfinger.
