NASCAR Sprint Cup teams have invaded Bristol Motor Speedway.
The concrete high banks of the world's fastest half mile saw practice by both Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup cars.
The big news of course is the much heralded meeting between Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski scheduled for Saturday morning.
While Edwards spent part of the day defending his actions, Keselowski seemed only concerned about donuts being served at the pow wow hosted by Mike Helton.
A few of the veteran drivers, especially Jimmie Johnson, weighed in on the situation and Edwards' retaliation.
The sentiments were pretty much the same; Keselowski had it coming.
The slide you see here is an overhead view of Thunder Valley. Bristol is a tight squeeze when 43 plus teams from both series occupy the small infield.
