Saturday Night at Bristol Always a NASCAR Betting Focal Point

August 16th, 2019 Auto Racing, Offshore Bookmaker

A clear difference is seen between the Bristol Night Race and all others. Even the Daytona 500 pales in comparison to many fans.  Indeed, nearly all drivers on the MENCS circuit say that the race they covet most of all is the Night Race at Bristol.  It’s easy to understand why.  The short half-mile track with its high banks surrounded by towering grandstands under the lights is the epitome of the atmosphere.  It should come as no surprise that Kyle Busch is among the top NASCAR betting performers at Bristol.  Rowdy will get a hard look from gamblers!

Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race Overview and History

Since 1978 the summer race at Bristol has been run at night.  It is much more popular than the annual spring race held in the daytime at Bristol each spring.  Last year Kurt Busch was the NASCAR Betting night race winner.  His brother Kyle took the checkers in 2017.  Kevin Harvick was the winner in 2016.  By contrast, Joey Logano took the checkered flag in 2014 and 2015.  Specifically, Bristol Motor Speedway is a half-mile in length.  Its turn banks are 30 degrees with a concrete surface.
