It's not that Kyle Larson isn't a fan of the sticky substance put down on the racing surface at Bristol Motor Speedway. The track team used a compound on the lower groove in all four corners and out of the straightaways to help with grip. Track: Bristol Motor Speedway (oval, 0.53 miles). The 55-minute session was the only track time the Cup Series had Friday with rain washing out qualifying.

But now, race fans, not just from Bristol, but in Johnson City and Kingsport as well, can let someone else do the driving.

"Aside from becoming a dirt-track racer, which I'm not going to do, it's just about practice and experience and getting a vehicle underneath you that you feel comfortable with", she said. To make a pass you have to break that rhythm and then quickly get back into it.

For all your NASCAR needs this season, stay with us all season long! His average start is 16.9 and average finish 20.9. His average finish in six races there is 10.6 (his best), and he has three top-5 finishes (his best).

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

Chase Elliott will start on the front row alongside Larson, who owns one victory and four runner-up finishes through seven races in the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet this season. Brad Keselowski has been strong, as well. "Hopefully get race in today, the forecast looks bad but it's not raining". Harvick has two wins at the Colosseum, including a victory last fall where he led 128 laps.

Kyle Busch, a victor of five Monster Energy NASCAR races and 17 overall at BMS, said the early indication Friday was that "there's a lot of bottom going on and not a whole lot of middle or top".

This will be the 113th Cup race held at the World's Fastest Half-mile.

"So far, pretty good", said Truex. In four spring races at B.M.S., Patrick has finished no better than the 18th position once, and that was a Bristol career-best ninth-place finish in 2015. Next up are Clint Bowyer and Paul Menard who come $2,000 apart. Larson has been one of the two best drivers in the series this year, and I think a breakout performance could be on tap at a track that he has made it clear is among his favorites.

Joe Gibbs Racing had three victories at this point last season, including back-to-back wins by Kyle Busch.

Trevor Bayne ($6,800) - Bayne's salary also dropped a $100 this week but that is not why I will be targeting him.

Through seven races so far this season, there have been six different winners with Keselowski the only repeat victor. Those instances often produce the type of made-for-TV moments NASCAR needs to capture attention in the midst of National Basketball Association and NHL playoffs, as well as the Major League Baseball season.

"I commend Bristol for trying in that wish-land space to try to do something here at the bottom", said Johnson, who will start 11th. He lives in Saskatchewan, Canada with his wife and two daughters.
