Will it be KB or BK? JJ or Smoke? Even more important, will anyone throw a punch?
The driver introductions are a little different here at Bristol, with them being brought out to music of their choice. Matt Kenseth rode around on the truck with his daughter, Kaylin, in his arms.
Bristol is extremely close short track racing. Tempers get hot quickly and sometime escalate beyond what they might at any track. Jimmy Spencer punched Kurt Busch in the nose in 2002. Dale Earnhardt Sr. rattled Terry Labonte's cage in 1999. You can got back through history and the race track has seen its share of wrecks and rivalries. It is entirely possible that today will see another one.
Last year's winner was Brad Keselowski and the media has been vocal about how he "cheated" to get the win by speeding between the timing lines on pit road. Well, it wasn't cheating as Brad's speed was exactly where it was supposed to be at those timing lines, he just sped up in between the lines, passing several cars and getting better position on track. NASCAR has reacted to that and placed two more scoring lines on pit road between the ones that existed previously, effectively eliminating that strategy.
Kyle Busch gets the job done at Bristol, but he has had some bad luck so far this year. He did an interview with Darrell Waltrip and confessed openly that being parked last year after wrecking Ron Hornaday "scared the death" out of him. He realized things had gotten out of control and he needed to make some changes, but said still, "The haters are the motivators." Kyle has five wins at Bristol and today could very well be his sixth.
I'm not picking Kyle, my pick is Dale Jr. Who have you got?
