The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series moves from the West Coast to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500.
The half-mile short racetrack in Thunder Valley provides race fans with some of the most exciting racing of the year. The battle for the victory almost always comes down to the last lap.
Bristol is a tricky racetrack for drivers. Most drivers are either very good or very bad at Bristol. A driver’s ability to get around the short racetrack has a lot to do with the driver’s background. Drivers who grew up racing on short tracks usually perform well.
This week the top 10 finishers in the Food City 500 will be made up of drivers who have had a lot of success at Bristol and some surprises.
Here are my predictions for the top 10 finishers at Bristol.
