By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway was a tale of two races for the 2017 Sunoco Rookie of the Year (ROTY) contenders in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. All five of the ROTY contenders have experience at ‘The World’s Fastest Half-Mile.’ Erik Jones was the best rookie for the second week in a row, finishing second in the No. 77 5-hour Energy Extra Strength Toyota Camry after running inside the top-five all night long.

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer A flat tire, contact with the wall, and lap traffic could not keep Trevor Bayne from reaching a career milestone with a top-10 finish. For the first time in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career, he earned top-10 finishes in back-to-back races. Bayne bounced up and down through the field in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. Bayne finished in seventh after an eventful second-half of the Bristol-night race. He had a hard-fought battle with Jimmie Johnson as he moved up through theRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer For Cole Custer, a 10th-place finish in the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway is a welcome change from last weekend. Compared to last weekend, Custer ran inside the top-15 all night long. Bristol was a quiet race for the driver of the No. 00 Haas / One Cure Ford Mustang. Custer hovered around 10th for much of the night. As Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers surged forward, he fell in line behind them. This can be seen in Custer’s stage finishes, 11thRead More

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer Heading into Friday night’s Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, Dakota Armstrong is looking to reverse his past struggles at “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile.” Armstrong is coming off a top-10 finish at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. In seven career NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at Bristol, Armstrong has yet to score a finish better than 18th. Earlier this season, he finished 19th in the No. 28 WinField United Toyota Camry for JGL Racing. Armstrong also has two career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts atRead More

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer One week after completing just four laps, John Hunter Nemechek rebounds to finish third at Bristol Motor Speedway. Nemechek’s No. 8 Plan B Sales Inc. Chevrolet Silverado was a top-10 truck for much of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 200. In the final stages of the race, Nemechek surged forward, climbing though the field. A lengthy, heated battle with Justin Haley saw beating and banging before Nemechek moved forward. On the final restart, he jumped inside the top-five and crossed the finish-line inRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer For Ben Rhodes, the UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway presents an opportunity to ensure a Playoff berth. Currently, Rhodes sits sixth in the points standings, but his No. 27 Safelite AutoGlass Toyota Tundra is eighth after Playoff seeding. In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Rhodes has two starts at the high-banked, 0.533-mile oval. In those two starts, he has one top-10 finish, a ninth-place in 2014. He looked as if he would improve that finish last year, running second until an engine failureRead More

The Truck Series regulars will have their hands full once again in Saturday’s race as Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Busch will be in the field. The last time the Truck Series visited Bristol MotorRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer Pit strategy helped Chris Buescher score a top-10 finish in the Pure Michigan 400. Buescher was off-sequence throughout most of the race before finally finishing in sixth. After staying out and catching a caution with 13 laps to go, Buescher found himself one of eight yet to pit. With just 14 drivers on the lead lap, crew chief Trent Owens’s strategy worked out. Buescher’s No. 37 Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Chevrolet SS was primed for a to-10 run. The late-race pit strategy for the JTG-Daugherty RacingRead More
