How can you tell that Sunday's Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway took place on St. Patrick's Day?

Because it ended with a huge fight and somebody throwing up.

More on those things later. Jokes about drinking holidays aside, the fourth race of the Sprint Cup season provided fans with plenty of entertainment. It proved that the old style of racing at Bristol is back to stay, with drivers wrecking as they went for the lead and tempers flaring.

It also helped demonstrate who this season's most competitive drivers are going to be. Race winner Kasey Kahne looks like he can build on last year's fourth-place points finish, while Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are re-establishing themselves as masters of consistency.
