The Easter vacation break is over and the NASCAR haulers will be rolling into Bristol to unload their treasures this weekend. When the cars finish their practice and qualifying runs at “The World’s Fastest Half Mile”, there are some interesting things that may unfold on Sunday.
The Busch brothers, Kurt and Kyle, will battle at Bristol Motor Speedway for sole possession of the active track wins lead in Sunday’s Food City 500. The Brothers Busch pace active drivers with five victories each at “The Last Great Colosseum.”
Despite their successes, Kyle hasn’t won at Bristol since spring of 2011 and Kurt hasn’t visited Victory Lane there since spring of 2006, that is 100 dog years! In 23 starts at the .533-mile short track, Kyle claims eight top fives, 13 top 10s and a 14.3 average finish. Kurt has nine top fives and 16 top 10s in 32 Bristol starts.
Kyle has the second-best Bristol driver rating (100.5), while Kurt’s is fifth-best (93.1).
Could either one of these brothers be hoisting the hardware Sunday evening? As the Sun gets lower on the horizon Sunday the celebration will begin in Victory Lane!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
