Busch and Gibbs team hope for breakthrough at Bristol

Qualifying for the Cup race was cancelled on Friday, while Saturday's XFINITY Series Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 was delayed by rain for over an hour. He has two top-10 finishes in six starts and an average finish of 21.5.

Track officials applied an adhesive compound (VHT) to the lower lanes in the turns prior to this weekend's race at the request of drivers. He's already got one win this season and his front-row starting spot has him certain he can have a strong race. Elliott Sadler battled his way back to finish fourth, increasing his points lead over JR Motorsports teammate William Byron to 16 points. The result saw three exciting August races, including an XFINITY Series race that fans, drivers and media have claimed to be one of the most exciting in series history.

Justin Allgaier finished 14th, Cole Custer finished 32nd, and Brendan Gaughan finished 35th.

Erik Jones claimed back-to-back Xfinity Series victories, at both Bristol Motor Speedway and on the season.

The spring Bristol race is one of four designated Dash 4 Cash events on the Xfinity Series this season. That's what our ultimate goal was. "For me personally, yeah, it does change the feel of the weekend, but I think you're not changing the competitiveness of it".

Rain also interrupted Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race, creating a delay of more than 90 minutes.

Browns zero in on No. 1 pick, trade for veteran QB unlikely
Not one of those quarterbacks finished with a record above.500 as a starter with the club as the playoff drought continues. Cleveland is concerned that the Jets or the Bills (at pick 10) would take Trubisky before Cleveland is on the clock at 12.

Rookie Erik Jones paced the Cup practice, turning in a fast lap of 15.009 seconds at 127.843 miles per hour.

Once the race goes green, points leader Kyle Larson will start from the pole after qualifying was washed out on Friday afternoon. He lined up third on a restart with 34 laps remaining but faded due to a problem with his right rear tire and wound up seventh.

Say what you will about the man's actions, but at least he didn't form some breathless apology when we all know he's damn-well proud of knocking Clements upside the head. "I didn't know whether we had a winning auto or not".

"The 42 vehicle has been lights-out, with Tyler (Reddick) in it or Kyle (Larson) in it". "It just makes it too easy for us and I don't think that is good for racing". We finally got some clean air and had enough to hang on until the end.

While the flurry of caution flags helped Jones, Blaney said the succession of short runs in the final 50 laps hurt his chances of winning. "We were kind of messed up on momentum there". I just don't see how that is fun. That's hard racing. I pushed the issue.
