Winners and Losers of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Bristol

NASCAR's Bristol night race has returned to must-see status.

Forty-three cars, a half-mile short track and plenty of need for postseason posturing all but guarantees that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers and teams will leave Bristol Motor Speedway's August night race either fuming in frustration or smiling in pleasure.

Saturday night provided no shortage of either.

With a still-new method of racing around the top of the track's concrete high-banks adding to the tension, Matt Kenseth drove to the win with an impressive display to again hold Kasey Kahne back from a win. There were also 11 cautions for 74 of the 500 laps, meaning there were plenty of teams who left scowling from opportunities lost.

All told, it was another classic NASCAR night at Bristol. Click to find out who left smiling and who didn't.
