2017 Food City 500

Bristol Motor Speedway, Bristol, Tennessee

April 24, 2017

This week we head over to Bristol, Tennessee. With Joe Gibbs Racing’s Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth winning 3 of the last 8 Food City 500 races and with Carl Edwards capturing the win last year, Joe Gibbs Racing is hoping that momentum carries over into this Sunday’s Food City 500.  The oval track is a short 1/2 mile so study up on those driver’s who excel on short tracks.  Another thing to consider is the fact that rain is expected (click here).
