 :< alright fellas we are BACK after the Easter weekend of no races at all, and we come back to one of the. E.g. races of the entire season, at BRISTOL motor speedway!!!!  Hell yeah. Both the xfinity series and the Cup series will Be in action, (truck series of off again)and will be EARLY afternoon races,  hopefully we can keep this insane winning streak going, but nothing is easy at Bristol.

Keep in mind Bristol has underwent several pavement overhauls and reconfiguration over recent years, so a lot of old data is just null and void , at least in my opinion. My notebooks that I use now are totally updated and old data thrown out basically. Gonna be a ton of wrecks and craziness as always

Bristol is a 0.553 short track oval with banking in the turns at 26-30 degrees and banking on the straights is 6-10 degrees.

Absolutley my favorite racetrack on the entire circuit. Probably gonna go to both races for the weekend of my buddy has his RV there


GOODLUCK this weekend!!!!!

Also a TON of drivers have very MISLEADING finishes here, so just looking up stats doesn't even come close to telling the whole story over the past 4-5 races. Keep that in mind

Kyle Busch and logano should open the favs. Even though Kyle hasn't won a race here since repaving and reconfiguration happened years back. Some just bad luck though

 JJ is usually a double digit opener here lately

Already raining at the racetrack

Be shocked if lineup isn't set via owner points

Worried Xfinity may after cup race now, which would reallly hurt my weekly strategy
