BRISTOL, Tenn. — Saturday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway could be interesting from before the start.
After a press conference with reporters Friday, Brian Vickers once again criticized Kyle Busch for being “so mad about something so small.” Vickers was once again reacting to the end of last weekend’s Nationwide Series Race at Michigan, when Brad Keselowski flew by the two drivers on the outside as they fought amongst themselves for the lead.
Both drivers are trying to make the Chase, and they qualified in close proximity — 14th and 15th.
The pre-race procedures have been changed for Saturday’s Sharpie 500, as drivers will walk out of the Turn 3 tunnel to the tune of a song of their choice before entering a truck that will escort them around the track. Both Vickers and Busch will ride in the same truck by virtue of their close qualifying positions.
Here’s to both of them making it to the race in one piece.
