Martin Truex Jr. Wins Pinty’s Truck Race On Dirt At Bristol

In defiance of conventional wisdom, it wasn’t an experienced dirt racer who won Monday’s twice-rain-delayed Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway.

NASCAR Weekend Preview: Atlanta – Will Cup Series Drivers Continue To Share The Wealth?

It’s unusual for the NASCAR Cup Series to run six races to start a season without seeing a repeat winner.  Not since 2014, when Kevin Harvick became the first multiple winner in the eighth event of the season, has the series produced six different winners in the first six races.  Last year, there were two […]
