Martin Truex Jr. would love to extend his points lead by picking up a Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race win, and he’s not the only one who’d like to see the No. 78 back in Victory Lane for the second time in three races. Since he’s sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, you can bet this is a “home race” of sorts for the current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series points leader.
Saturday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway’s half-mile track could feature another upset winner, spoiling bubble drivers Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray, and Clint Bowyer’s shot at making the playoffs on points alone. Elliott is 62 points ahead of the first driver on the outside of the playoffs looking in — Bowyer. Elliott holds a 10-point lead over McMurray and a 31-point advantage over Kenseth.
Things could get very interesting at the front of the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race, so you don’t want to miss it — especially since it’s on a different day, at a different time and on a new network as NBC takes the reins from cable sibling NBCSN. So how do you catch the Bristol action?
