The NASCAR Cup Series is back for the fifth time since the coronavirus shutdown with Sunday’s Food City Presents Supermarket Heroes 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Chase Elliott scored an emotional first win of 2020, after having shots at victory in the previous two events at Darlington and Charlotte ending in heartbreaking fashion.
While Elliott finally scored his first win of the year, his new rival and defending Cup Series champion Kyle Busch is still in search of his first win of the year. Busch has eight wins at the World’s Fastest Half Mile.
Brad Keselowski, who won the Coca-Cola 600 last Sunday, will roll from the pole position by virtue of a random draw. This will not count as an official Busch Pole Award for Keselowski.
The starting lineup should make the race somewhat in predictable as we have no idea who will have a fast car when the race starts.
Now let’s get to the important stuff you need to know about Sunday’s race.
