Stock Car Scoop: Will Bristol Bring Classic Chaos or Martinsville Monotony?

Bristol Motor Speedway looms large in the windshields of NASCAR’s 16 Cup Series playoff drivers this weekend, as the premier division takes to the half-mile Last Great Colosseum for 500 laps to determine which four drivers are slashed from the 2022 postseason.

Adam Cheek and Michael Massie break down every aspect of the upcoming race on Saturday (Sept. 17) and whether it’ll showcase chaos or a monotonous event similar to Martinsville Speedway this spring. Plus, the pair analyzes Kyle Busch‘s move to Richard Childress Racing for 2023, the Xfinity Series’ playoff cutoff on Friday (Sept. 16) and the Camping World Truck Series’ first race of the Round of 8 on Thursday (Sept. 15).

The duo also give their predictions for Saturday’s winner and the four drivers knocked out of the 2022 playoffs.
