What month Andy?
and then ends with
OK so it is May. I won't edit my post so you can make the correction in your article, Andy.
I like the two-day format. I like lights. I like modifieds. I like all the sanctioning bodies involved. Apparently it's 100 lap races for the three Late Model classes.
11 hours to Bristol from Connecticut.
I did correct it. sh!t, long ass week.......and it ends with breaking news............
This sounds like a kick-ass event
$45 for both days is a steal. This really looks awesome. I wanted to go to Bristol in 2017...might do this instead of the night race.
You'd probably enjoy it more. That looks like a fun event.
Maybe if there was dirt it'd be a must see
There's always that one guy for whom nothing is ever good enough. Congrats on being that guy. Life must suck for you.
In MIS15's defense, I remember him defending the hell out of the new racing procedure.
Looks like a great event with room to grow.
question for the asphalt followers: with this being scheduled in the middle of point racing season, will other sanctions take the week off to give the racers an opportunity to attend?
I would think most race teams would love the chance to race at Bristol.
This maybe the event to get me to Bristol for the first time.
Really good value for my racing budget.
Car counts so high Bristol has threatened to cap off the number of entries...but no entry lists or any news about anything since over a month ago
Have you heard anything @AndyMarquisLive ? You're always in the loop with these kinda things...
I have been looking to and cant find anything. I have this event penciled
on the calendar to be my first Bristol trip. I thought it would be the Outlaw
late models but now I don't think so.
OOOps - I just found what I needed at the link above.
What outlaw late models?
Some could show up since they are off that weekend
and in the Tenn. area the weekend before.
OK, there is also a pavement short track class in the midwest called outlaw late models. Series such as OSCAAR, etc... use outlaw late models.
World of Outlaws late model series is dirt late models, none of those drivers will be at the Bristol race... Doesn't matter that they will be in the area, the issue isn't getting to the track, the issue is having a car to race in.. Dirt super late models are completely different from asphalt super late models
Glad that's cleared up. I know they have done dirt before . When I think late model my mind goes
directly to dirt.
Looking forward to it even more. I can do with out the dust theses days.
Yeah, I do realize that they did the dirt covered thing years ago. Would be cool to see them try that again.
Anyway, the stuff racing at Bristol this time is all asphalt. Cars that look like this:
I swear racing execs must watch this board...
Entries capped at 110 for compacts and street stocks, 80 for modifieds, pro late models, and super late models, 60 for late model stocks. Entry lists coming March 27.
There we go, now we are getting somewhere.
Any word out there on how big of an event this will be?
Any drivers interested in being on Bristol?
500+ cars...entry lists were posted awhile back on the CRA website. Notable NASCAR guys include Bubba Wallace, John Hunter Nemacheck, Erik Darnell, Steven Wallace (I believe it's the Steven Wallace...pretty common name though).
Thanks Speedbowl. I will go look at the CRA website.
And...I'M GOING TO BRISTOL!!! Pulled the trigger at a Comfort Inn 25 minutes north of the track. This event was just too sweet to pass up, for a number of reasons. Bristol has been on my bucket list and now it's happening! In exactly one month, I will be wearily driving into a hotel parking lot, very very far from home, but smiling knowing that I will visit Bristol the next day.
My wildest NASCAR fantasy meets a short track fan's dream...and I. Can't. Wait.
Great! It will be my first time too! Praying for good weather. If its anything like
this weekends forecast , I will pull the plug. But are you kidding, 500 cars
trying to get their class crowns. You know it will be a first for a lot of those
drivers to be on that kind of banking. Over the 2 days I want to sit in all corners of the track.
