Welcome to today’s NASCAR race at the Zoom Speedway!
The race is about to begin. Let’s meet today’s drivers. In the yellow car, we have Tony Stewart. He has the points lead and three wins this season, but he has crashed out of the last two races. He will be trying to rebound today. In the second position, we have Kurt Busch, who won here earlier this year and finished second in this event last season. Starting third is Jeff Gordon, who finished 13th here last year, his worst showing at this track in over 10 years.
Now let’s get underway! The green flag drops and they are off!
Jeff Gordon quickly jumps out to a lead with teammate Jimmie Johnson close behind him. Kurt Busch also makes a good start and is closing on Johnson for second place. Tony Stewart gets caught up behind some slower cars, but he’ll look for an opening soon to move back up through the field.

Kevin Harvick enters as the defending champion, also tying a record for most consecutive wins with seven in 2019 after winning his second championship in 2018. He also broke a record for most top fives with 35, previously held by Jimmie Johnson at 32, set in 2007.
Harvick and crew chief Rodney Childers announced on May 2 that they would not return to Stewart-Haas Racing after the 2020 season, instead moving to Chip Ganassi Racing with sponsorship from Mobil 1.

Cristiano da Matta covered a race distance of 115 laps (623 km) during the first day of testing in Bahrain. The Brazilian driver was back in action on Friday and Saturday, completing a total of 135 laps (738 km) as he focused on set-up work for the opening race of 2004.
The two-time Champ Car World Series champion spent most of his time working with new Bridgestone tyres and evaluating different set-ups to meet the demands of the Sakhir circuit. Da Matta’s best lap time was 1m 29.828s, set during the first day of testing.

Bristol Motor Speedway has been the site of many memorable moments throughout racing history, including one of the most famous finishes in NASCAR’s history.
The 1986 race may be known for a famous photo finish among Dale Earnhardt, Geoff Bodine and Darrell Waltrip, but it was what happened to Bobby Allison that turned that race into one of the most memorable events ever at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Allison won the pole for the Goody’s 500 with a speed of 128.709 mph, but when the green flag flew on Aug. 24, 1986, he found himself struggling to keep pace with Ernie Irvan and Terry Labonte. He faded back in the field while they battled for the lead up front.
But on lap 124, Labonte spun out in Turn 4 and hit the wall hard enough to bring out the caution flag. It was not immediately clear if Labonte suffered any injuries on the crash.
Labonte’s crash brought out a red flag for track cleanup as debris littered the track. When that was completed, teams were allowed onto pit road to check on their cars and work on them during the stoppage in action.
