Ross Chastain and Austin Cindric are two drivers to keep an eye on at Bristol Motor Speedway on Monday.
After Chastain’s performance at Charlotte Motor Speedway, he jumped two spots in the standings and is now third, only 12 points behind Chase Briscoe.
Chastain’s jump in the points is the most of any other driver in the top 10. He led 68 laps, the second-most, and finished runner-up in both stages at Charlotte.
Austin Cindric also jumped up one spot and is now second in the points standings, right behind Briscoe by only eight points.
He finished sixth in Stage 1 and fourth in Stage 2 before battling with Kyle Busch for the win on the last lap.
Chastain and Cindric are both the highest ranked drivers without a win and seem to be getting closer and closer each week to the victory.
Cindric has only finished outside of the top 10 in one of the six races so far and it was in the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, where he was involved in a wreck.
Chastain is in the same boat as Cindric and only finished outside of the top 10 in the season-opening race at Daytona.
