  • If anyone reading this knows anybody that makes a difference please tell them to use Arkansas gumbo. Just like they use at the ditch in West Memphis. It will still go through all the changes but there's no orange dust in the air. It would be great if they could see so get reisfield gumbo for the track

  • I was excited to see them finally race on dirt but the track maintenance during the race was not good. The dust was way too much. They have got to figure something out.

  • I was disaoppointed with the bristol race . After 40 laps you were racing on asphalt in the center . why not take up the asphalt and have a real dirt track ?

  • Ridiculous. This isn't a dirt race. It's dirt spread on concrete that gets blown off and creates a dust cloud. I thought this was a bad idea and I was right.

  • As a true NASCAR fan, you'd think I'd love the dirt racing at Bristol. I don't. I don't even like Bristol. You can blame Denny Hamlin for that. The Cup Series does NOT belong on dirt. Leave the dirt racing to the Truck Series. Trucks belong on dirt tracks. Cup Series cars belong on Superspeedways and Road Courses (7 of them is a EXCELLENT start, but it ain't enough for me... I'd like at least 10!) The Xfinity Series belongs EVERYWHERE, since it's The Proving Grounds Of NASCAR.

  • Sorry, this was the worst idea in a long time. Bristol as a concrete track, the world's fastest half-mile, was the absolute best track on the circuit. Changing this great race to the equivalent of Friday night heat races was awful. Competition cautions? No pit strategy? Slower speeds with reduced visibility? Ugh. You want a dirt race for some reason, go to Eldora. Or Hickory. Or even Martinsville. But not here. Ever. Absolutely ruined one of my two favorite races each year.

  • This! This dirt track needs to be there every year. Road course in Watkins Glenn, Dirt in Bristol, Brickyard, Huge course at Daytona and Talledaga, and then, and only then, arrange the schedule for smaller tracks around those. This will bring me back to NASCAR. I've been away too long.

  • Not gonna lie, I've been watching NASCAR for the last 22 years *(that I can remember, I've been born and bread into NASCAR for the last 26 years of my life)* and this is the best race I've ever seen. As soon as I saw they were trucking in dirt to Bristol, I couldnt not watch it... NASCAR viewership had to expanded tenfold... I'd love to make it back to another race if I can here soon and camp in the camping spots like my dad and I did when he was still here!
