Reason why Monday because due to the rain occurred last Sunday, the Food City 500 race in Bristol has been delayed to Monday. Quite an inconvenience they got here, huh? But anyway, with the rain slowly disappearing with the hint of cloudy skies in Bristol, the race goes on as planned with shattering results.
There has been some wall-smackers and spin-outers as this race at Bristol is becoming as intense as the imminent summer. As Clint Bowyer might said "You'd think Jimmie would get tired of winning", and boy, he's wrong because behind all the spins and the through-the-wall collisions, the #48 nailed its second straight season win after fending off the likes of Bowyer, Truex Jr., and the others.
Anyway, the day after the race, there was a shocking announcement that the #88, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., will be stepping down from the world of NASCAR after this season. As the son of the legendary NASCAR champion, Earnhardt Jr. scored 26 overall wins in his career, two Daytona 500 wins in 2004 and 2014, and two championship wins in 1998 and 1999.
Next race is on Richmond International Raceway on the 30th.
