He's first win of the season made it a little too tight through the center of the corner, but turned into a heck of a race in and out of traffic there with Kyle. He got me. Gabi once pinned up there in traffic and Was able TTO do the same thing back and and then hold the lead there there till the end, so just really proud of everybody, that they for everything that they've done all year and just continuing to fight, And there's not many races that you can win, or like like women here in Bristol Night race, so That was.

NASCAR submits plan to convert Auto Club Speedway into half-mile short track
"Auto club speedway they're going to demo the whole thing. Make it a Martinsville Slash Bristol. For lack of a better term, I guess yeah. Although fact checking they're not going to out the whole thing because it's crazy to me is the front stretch is still going to be the same all auto club front stretch with a little bit of banking on it and the back stretch I think their plan is to be pit road which thinking about it. Logistically would be like a super tight turn because the pit road and the front stretch are not that far away from each other but the rendering looks really interesting. It just looks like a really long Martinsville slash. Bristol? And it kind of looks like hot wheels track. You know what I mean when you have those slam ours and they have the long straightaways in the super. Bank corners out of like forty five degrees. Economy reminds me of that takes me back to my to my

Around 20K fans attend All-Star race at Bristol
"Thousands of fans turned out for a Nascar race in Tennessee last night. They AP reports. This was likely the biggest sporting event crowd in the US. Since early March at least twenty thousand people showed up for the All star race at Bristol Motor speedway there was social distancing though fans were spread out across the stands, and they did have plenty of room. The speedway can hold about one hundred sixty thousand people, but ticket sales for last night's event were capped at just one fifth of that, so while it was the largest major sporting event crowd and months it likely the smallest turn out in the race tracks nearly sixty year history.
Looking Ahead After Kentucky Speedway
"Beli go to the all-star racist of course midweek. We're excited for that, but then on the next points race Texas in points. Were there a premium now? Kyle because Cole custer winning this race taking a playoff position only nine races to go before the cut-off yet you know we talked about it a couple years ago when Chris Butcher won at Pocono when you're outside the top twenty five or back in points far enough, and then all of a sudden you leapfrog into that top. Top Sixteen, and you don't just leapfrog into that top sixteen you leapfrog into the playoffs. You leapfrog all the way that's how simple it is with that win, so I think when we look at that that puts a lot of pressure on sixteen, Seventeen, eighteen, also on fifteenth fourteenth. Thirteenth twelve these guys. It tightens up it again I'm back to the musical chairs, analogy, the music just stop for somebody and that top fifteen and they got bumped out. They went into this race thinking. They were only a few points in or a few points now and now they're out completely. They've to figure out how to find their way back into it, so that is the amazing part, and that is the exciting part for me about watching these next eight or ten races leading up to that bump leading up to that playoff situation, because there's so many things so many strategies that go into it and you've always got to be looking behind you at a team that can jump. Jump in and win a race. Yeah, so yet. Pressure is mounting now so when this season started. What feels like two and a half years ago? It's hard to imagine that we're talking about just non-racist until we get to the play offs, so I think that because of everything that's been happening. I'm not sure how many people have even been paying attention to those playoff standings that much, but with coal customers win. That is open. Everyone's ass is open. The eyes of those people that are. Back to sixteenth Jimmy Johnson sitting in that sixteenth spa is the eyes of some rookies and some other teams that haven't won yet, but see that. Coq Gun win a race. That says that this is open to anybody and everybody could possibly do that, so the the pressure's GonNa. GonNa, amount here and we've. We've got racist coming up as some very difficult tracks, a coupla double header weekends that Never GonNa come along so many things happening that we can see a lot of shakeup in display off standings as we look at, it might not look anything like what we see right now, but cold customers proved to the world that is out there for the.
