Bristol Motor Speedway is known as the roughest and toughest track in NASCAR, so it's appropriate that a driver whose nickname is "Rowdy" has won four of the last five Bristol Cup events.
Drivers make it around the World's Fastest Half Mile in about 15 seconds or less, and the banking at the .533-mile oval is 26 to 30 degrees banking in the turns. The frontstretch and the backstretch are a mere 650 feet long, leaving little to no time for drivers to react to events ahead of them on the race track.
Needless to say, tempers often flare on and off the track at Bristol, as we saw in the truck race Wednesday night. Bristol races often shake up the standings in the aftermath of carnage on the track, and I think we can expect to see some of that on Saturday night.
Will Kyle Busch continue his Bristol dominance? How will the race affect the Chase standings? Read on to find out.
