The race is expected to offer fans a unique experience and also help fans get back on track after the underperforming short-distance races Richmond and Martinsville.
Drivers take to the track on Friday for practice sessions for Truck Series qualifying and Cup Series races. Both events were significant as a handful of cup drivers also compete in the truck event.

Kyle Busch on the visibility issues on Bristol’s gravel track
Kyle Busch acknowledged that visibility was a major challenge in the second half of the race and indicated that this will be a major challenge going forward. In contrast to the cup race, the truck training actually went well and the dust in the air was minimal at the time.
“So much better I think, but you couldn’t see the second half of this exercise. You put a car in front of you, you can’t see it. Two cars, you definitely don’t see them. This will be the hardest part – the dust. It looked like truck practice was going pretty well but as the track got wider a couple of these guys were a little hesitant to get it right and then when they started it was just dust from the first truck , who was run the high side and burn it with the right rear wheel. said Kyle Bush.
Kyle Busch in the next-gen car has more grip on Bristol
Kyle Busch said that the Next Generation Cars offer more grip than the previous ones and produce more drive out of corners. He suggested that grip has a lot to do with the width and footprint of the tires. Kyle Busch went on to say that the extra grip will be beneficial to negate the effects of the reduced 100hp.
“More grip. I’m surprised how much grip this car has. More drive out of the curves. I think most of it has to do with the tire. The tires are really wide. It has a really good footprint considering its tread pattern compared to an open wheel tread pattern. It goes quite well with the truck tire, which is very round and crowned,‘ said Kyle Bush.
“I would say the tires are an advantage but the car where we’ve been with this thing so far has had extra grip. We also have 100 hp less than last year, so that also helps with timely acceleration,added Kyle Busch.
