Next Stop Bristol Motor Speeday

Next stop Bristol Motor Speedway for Sunday’s Food City 500, eighth race of the 2016 Sprint Cup Series and the second of six short-track races on the schedule. Matt Kenseth is the defending winner. Last year, Kenseth started from the pole and also went to Victory Lane – becoming the first driver to win the track’s spring race from the Number-1 starting spot since Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace in 1999 … The burning question this weekend? Can anyone cool off a red-hot Kyle Busch? The reigning Sprint Cup champion has back-to-back weekend sweeps – winning the last two Cup Series races, a Camping World Truck Series event at Martinsville Speedway and last weekend’s X-FINITY Series race in Texas. Busch has seventeen Bristol wins across NASCAR’s three national series: five Sprint Cup victories, eight in the X-FINITY Series and four Truck Series wins.
