Monday Morning Crew Chief Picks: Bristol

It's time for one of the most exciting races in NASCAR: Bristol. It's the one track on the circuit where a driver can get away with having both bumpers exposed and it wouldn't even matter. Patricia and Jacob extended their lead on Terrence as Greg Biffle finished third and Carl Edwards finished 5th at Vegas.

Monday Morning Crew Chief Picks: Bristol

Patricia (Monday Morning Driver): Dale Earnhardt Jr. is finally going to victory lane this weekend. Bristol Motor Speedway is one of Jr.'s favorite tracks. Combine that with the strong start the No. 88 team has had, and you'll hear a long sigh of relief from Jr. Nation on Sunday night.

Jacob: I’m going to go a bit off the beaten path this week and choose Jeff Burton. Burton has a history of running well at short tracks and Richard Childress Racing looked good at Phoenix led by Kevin Harvick’s second-place performance. Burton also needs a standout race to kick his season in gear. After a horrible 2011, Burton is currently 15th in the points standings and needs a strong run to remind everybody that he will be a factor for a Chase spot this season.

Terrence: I'm going to go with a car that has consistently performed well at Bristol no matter the driver. That is the Blue Deuce of Brad Keselowski. Keselowski has had a solid start to the season and will have another top 10 run at the half-mile, and maybe I'll make up some ground in this thing.

1. Patricia, 9
2. Jacob, 20
3. Terrence, 39
