On Saturday, Chris Buescher steals the show with a NASCAR Cup Series win at Bristol Motor Speedway in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race.
The final race of the opening round of the NASCAR Cup Series playoff was hosted at Bristol Motor Speedway. This was the first time the next-gen car was showcased on a concrete surface. Under the lights, and with a car making its first appearance on this surface, it was the perfect setting for a stressed-induced race. The playoff race remains tight with no real certainty on who was going to advance to the next round. All this was to be sorted out on Saturday in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race.
Aric Almirola stuns the field in clutch win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Cup Series Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 on Sunday.
With five races remaining in the regular season, the NASCAR Cup Series raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past weekend. A place that has been titled ‘The Magic Mile’ can become a tricky place to race. A one-mile oval with flat, sweeping corners; New Hampshire Motor Speedway only grants its magic to those who respect it.
If consistency was the metric to determine the NASCAR champion, Aric Almirola would have been firmly in contention last season. During the middle part of the season, the Stewart-Haas Racing driver set career highs in top-five finishes, top-ten finishes, and laps led with a stretch of five consecutive top-five finishes. However, a string of poor finishes and some bad luck at Talladega doomed Almirola in the Round of 12. He was unable to push for a championship.
