Kurt Busch Returns To Former Glory At Bristol

Guess who won five races at Bristol Motor Speedway between 2002 and 2005. Was it Tony Stewart? No. Jeff Gordon? Guess again. If you guessed Kurt Busch, then you get a gold star and and an old lug nut off of a Richard Petty race car. Just when he needed it, the 2004 champion turned back the clock to cement his playoff spot. As many of you know, there's been ample speculation concerning the 40-year old's future. There's been swirls of talk that the 41 will become the seat for Cole Custer in ...

Sure, 165,000 seats make for an enormous venue, but I'd be surprised if attendance was at a third of capacity. It's a shame, because I actually thought the racing was pretty good.
