Gen-6 Car Gets The Test At Bristol’s Short Track

From the big track at Daytona to the one mile track at Phoenix and last week at the mile and half circuit at Vegas, the Gen-6 car now gets a test at a short track. Drivers weren’t too happy with the new car at Daytona, it was better at Phoenix and Vegas, but now they move to the half-mile Bristol.

The drivers say the design of the bumpers will make this race especially interesting because they’re not as square so the bump-and-run will be more effective. They say it was really tough to get somebody out of the way with the Car of the Future and Gen-5 car, so we could see some different short-track racing this year.

Brad Keselowski is the defending race champion.

Kurt Busch won his first career Cup race at Bristol.

Kyle Busch is the youngest driver to win at Bristol. He was 21 when he won in 2007.

Kurt and Kyle along with Jeff Gordon lead all active drivers with five victories there.

Darrell Waltrip holds the record for most victories at Bristol with 12 including seven in a row.

This will be the 105th Cup race at Bristol since 1961.
