Heading into Monday's race, there is an expectation of frantic action. Sunday's Cup Series race featured 17 caution flags due to several accidents and on-track incidents. One pile-up even knocked four drivers out of the race and damaged four other cars.
JR Motorsports driver Justin Allgaier spoke to reporters earlier in the year and expressed his love for the 0.533-mile track. He referred to Bristol Motor Speedway as his "home away from home." Allgaier notched his first Xfinity Series win and secured the best Cup Series win of his career at Bristol, so it holds a special place in his heart.
"It's that place where every driver wants to win," Allgaier said to reporters. "Every driver feels he's close to winning at Bristol and has something go wrong. When you've conquered Bristol, you feel like you've conquered the world." Allgaier also said that the short track is very physically demanding and challenging for every driver.
Chase Elliott and Joey Logano experienced this difficulty firsthand at the very end of Sunday's Cup Series race. The two veteran drivers were facing off and competing for a spot in victory lane. The announcers fully expected one of them to win. However, Elliott's car slid on one of the turns and knocked Logano into the wall. Both drivers lost their momentum while Brad Keselowski secured a surprising victory. Logano and Elliott finished 21st and 22nd, respectively.
Allgaier has hopes of securing another victory at Bristol while avoiding significant incidents, and he will be in a favorable position to do so. He starts Monday's race in the 10th spot, just behind Noah Gragson. Harrison Burton has the pole position while Brandon Jones joins him at the front of the pack.
