Erik Jones makes it 2 straight this season with Xfinity win

Erik Jones makes it 2 straight this season with Xfinity win

There were two incidents on the track during the practice session.

Even though Bristol holds about 150,000 people, at its base core it's still a short track, arguably the most popular and well-known one in the world.

Great to be able to start second, but I also know that if you dont have your auto driving correctly, you can leave second position and head south pretty quick. "Myself and Chase, who I feel like have been the fastest all year long who are young, haven't gotten to race around Bristol when it's been on the bottom".

"I mean I will probably have to go back and watch like 1980 Bristol or something like that", Larson quipped.

"I think the fact they have shown they are very strong, particularly at intermediate stuff, I think that's a plus and a help for us".

It's Bristol, baby, sad voice edition: Among regular drivers with at least 10 starts, Michael McDowell (zero top-10s, average finish 32.2) and Landon Cassill (zero top-10s, average finish 30.2) are the most likely to finish poorly.

- The remaining 10 cars will be lined up by average finish of the first three stages and given the option to pit. Neither of the top two on the list has a win here but the three behind him do with Harvick the only one of them with multiple wins.

Busch did not disappoint regarding the latest alterations to the track surface.

As you can see, there are a lot of the same names on the short track history list.




Erik Jones has back-to-back Xfinity Series victories after a win Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. Since his 27th place finish at the Daytona 500, Brad has not finished worse than sixth in six straight races and has picked up two wins.

Still looking for his first win this season, Joey Logano has to be happy to head to Bristol this weekend. Chase Elliott is right behind him with 85 and has not finished outside the top 20 all season and has five Top 10's and three Top 5's in seven races this season.

FONTANA, Calif. - Kyle Larson was second to nobody in his home state.

He's also 14th in the Cup standings, the highest-ranked rookie. Next up are Clint Bowyer and Paul Menard who come $2,000 apart.

Last season after being knocked out of the spring race, Busch said he was "sick and exhausted of coming here since it sucks to race". Last year's victor was the recently retired Carl Edwards while Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson (who won two weeks ago at Texas) and Kevin Harvick have also picked up wins in the spring.

Qualifying was canceled because of early rain at the track, and the field was set by points.

"It's a track that I've enjoyed, and getting the win there a year ago in the Xfinity vehicle gives me a lot of confidence coming in to the weekend". There has been no sign of a sophomore slump for Elliott as he now is second in the point standings with three top five and five top ten finishes in the seven races run. So far, he's experiencing a bounce-back season.

This year's race was at one time rumored to be moved to CMS' infield road course, but ultimately the decision was made to keep it on the oval, according to NBC Sports. Let's hope she cuts NASCAR a break on what could be one of the sport's most exciting weekends of the season. "I thought that was a good width because you could get your left sides in it and you really had to be cautious of hitting your marks every corner". We haven't run real well.
