Race Facts: Bristol’s two pit roads are considered one under caution, but are separate during green. That tends to bite drivers in the butt, so odds are someone will get the rules confused on Sunday… The1971 race didn’t have any cautions. The first 50 laps Sunday […]

What We Learned Last Week: The Richard Petty cars aren’t necessarily going to be forces on intermediate tracks just because they’ve got Roush cars and Roush-Yates horsepower… Hendrick dominance is still the name of the game, except if you’re driving the #88 car… Ryan Newman has […]
