NASCAR Nationwide Series Ford EcoBoost 300 Preview
The NASCAR Nationwide Series takes on the World's Fastest Half Mile of Bristol Motor Speedway today in the Ford EcoBoost 300.
The last time the Nationwide Series was in Bristol, Kyle Busch beat Joey Logano to the win by about six inches. Logano wants the win today, and his day got off to a great start since he won the pole. The man that beat Logano to the line last August, Busch, will start eighth.
2011 Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne will start second with his teammate and 2011 NNS champion, Ricky Stenhouse Jr, right behind him in third.
The Richard Childress cars qualified fourth, sixth, and ninth. Elliott Sadler was the highest qualifier of the three followed by Kevin Harvick in sixth, and 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Austin Dillon in ninth.
Danica Patrick will roll off in 27th position. Patrick was outqualified by her female counterpart, Johanna Long, who will roll off 24th.
Bristol is known for its beating and banging, and now its also known for two and sometimes three-wide racing action since the track was repaved in 2007.
Who will get angry? Who will crash? Who will win? We'll find out when the Ford EcoBoost 300 goes green at 2:15 Eastern time.
