Man, what a race Bristol Motor Speedway put on. The race had it all. Big crashes, tight battles all night long, and in the end a driver — Kurt Busch — got their first win of the season.

Not only that, but three more drivers — Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson — did enough to secure berths in the Playoff Grid. With two races remaining 12 of the 16 slots have been filled, which leaves four positions for 18 drivers to battle for.

Who is locked in? Who is currently hanging on? And who is on the outside looking in?

Kyle Busch’s Bristol Performance Possibly Most Impressive/Frustrating of Career

By Toby Christie, Editor – Follow on Twitter @Toby_Christie

Throughout his career, Kyle Busch has won seven times at Bristol Motor Speedway, and along the way he has led a staggering 2,233 laps there. The 32-year-old driver did not add to either of those totals in Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops/NRA Night Race at Bristol, but his showing was possibly more impressive and frustrating than any of his previous 26 starts at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile.

What to do for the Buffalo Bills with McCarron Sidelined?

american sportsIn the offseason the Buffalo Bills parted ways with their signal caller of the past three seasons, Tyrod Taylor. It was a questionable move, but the Bills did bolster the QB position after letting Taylor go.

They signed coveted Cincinnati Bengals backup AJ McCarron, and drafted Josh Allen with the seventh pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. Although the team has been high on their rookie, Allen, many expected the team to turn to the veteran McCarron through at least the first portion of the season.

In the team’s second preseason game though, that potential plan took a huge hit.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Advance Auto Parts Clash

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. comes into Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops night race at Bristol Motor Speedway in an unenviable position – the first man outside the cutline for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

The 30-year-old driver currently sits 62 points behind Hendrick Motorports driver Alex Bowman. Stenhouse could erase that point deficit over the next three races, but it is highly unlikely that it will happen. But if Stenhouse were to win one of the three remaining regular season races the Olive Branch, Mississippi native would leapfrog his way automatically into the post season. The three races left include Bristol, Darlington and Indianapolis.

Tannehill Accurately Easing Back After Injuries in 2016 and 2017

There is a huge contingent of folks who have written off Ryan Tannehill as a Miami Dolphins draft bust. I get it, aside from a playoff appearance in 2016 (which he couldn’t actually appear in because he had injured his knee in the final weeks of the regular season) he has done very little to showcase that he is a good quarterback in the NFL.
