The starting lineups for both the Nationwide race, later this morning, and the Sunday Sprint Cup race, have been set at the Bristol Motor Speedway. For the Sunday Sprint Cup race at Bristol, The Food City 500, it is the Roush-Fenway Racing #16 3M Ford driven by none other than “The Biff”, Greg Biffle, leading the 43 race cars to the green flag. Along side “The Biff” on the front row is “The Dinger”, A.J. Allmendinger driving the Penske Racing #22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge.
Finishing out the top five qualifiers for the Sprint Cup race Sunday is Ryan Newman, Jeff Gordon, and “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski. If you are interested in the entire starting lineup for the Food City 500 Sunday, cheek out the official starting lineup.
Just for the record, not a single one of us have picked “The Biff” to win The Food City 500! However, four of us have chosen ol Kylie Busch to, once again, win at Bristol. As of late, ol Kylie, aka The Las Vegas Weasel (TLVW), has owned this concrete mixing bowl. As another side note, Bernie has picked the outside pole driver, “The Dinger” to win this race.
Does she know something that we don’t??
Other lone picks include Edie picking “Smoke”, Jeremy picking “Cousin Carl” Edwards, Marc picking the 2004 Sprint cup champion, Kurt (!@##@!#) Busch, and Scott picking Dale Earnhardt,Jr. We will see in about 36 hours who will prevail and secure the most points from Bristol!
Can ol Kylie, TLVW, win his fifth race at Bristol since 2008? Is there a possibilty that we have a fourth winner in four races? We will see tomorrow afternoon!
Good luck to all!

The Nationwide qualifying session has just concluded this morning in Bristol for The Ford EcoBoost 300. The man leading the NNS drivers to the green flag is Joey “Sliced Bread” Logano driving the Joe Gibbs Racing #20 Toyota. Lining up along side Logano is the 2011 Daytona 500 winner, Trevor Bayne. Bayne and his #60 Roush-Fenway Ford was going to forego racing at Bristol due to a shortage of sponsorship dollars. However, a sponsorship package was put together sometime Monday evening, or early Tuesday, allowing the team to race at Bristol.
Rounding out the top ten qualifiers are Rick Stenhouse, Jr., Elliott Sadler, Brian Scott, Kevin “Happy” Harvick, “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski, ol Kylie Busch (TLVW), Austin Dillon, and lastly, Justin “Lil Allaigator” Allgaier. Who will take the checkered flag in today’s Ford EcoBoost 300?
Look out for Austin Dillon. He is currently sitting in second place in the NNS standings after three races. Can Dale, Jr. pull off a win in the NNS race this morning?
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL THOSE BELTS TIGHT, FLIP THE VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
