Last year, NASCAR ran just its second Cup Series Bristol dirt race, and it produced plenty of chaos.
Several drivers in the Food City Dirt Race crashed out, including Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell. In the end, Joey Logano won the race, with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finishing second and Denny Hamlin placing third.
Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race will again be on the clay at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn.
Logano certainly is hoping to rekindle some of that magic from last year’s race. He narrowly lost in overtime a week ago at Martinsville, when William Byron claimed his second checkered flag of the season. Logano is still searching for his first win of the year.
