Bristol Motor Speedway has always been a hot bed of anger, hard driving, and amazing finishes. This week should be no different.
The added element this week of Friday Night Prime Time Racing doesn't hurt either.
There are quite a few Cup drivers this week, but Bristol is a very good equalizer. It's about surviving and being able to outdrive everyone around you. The Championship standings could take a hit as well this week.

45 drivers are entered this week, so two teams will go home. Just a few notes this week:
#2- Elliott Sadler will be looking to survive, but will also be looking to get his fourth win of the year.
#3- Austin Dillon has had some issues the past few weeks. He's had two failed inspections and now needs to get back on track if he hopes to win his first Nationwide Series Championship. Dillon is also in a battle with Cole Whitt for Rookie Of The Year. Both have had great first seasons.
#6- Ricky Stenhouse Jr is looking to get back to the top of the Points Charts. Stenhouse has shaken off a few bad weeks to pull within 22 points.
Join us Friday Night for some awesome Nationwide Racing. It's Bristol Short Track Racing Live on ESPN at 7pm Eastern! Enjoy!
