This weekend was the second Bristol race in a row to get moved back a day.
Considering how last season seemed to be a washout every weekend, this year has been relatively dry. It still sucks to have a Sunday race pushed back to a Monday.
It's really noticeable in the stands when there's more empty bleachers than fans. Especially when the racing was as good as it was Monday afternoon.
A big shout out to Bristol track officials for the way they've changed the racing surface. Besides for superspeedways, this may be the best two line track on the circuit now.
Even better, the track changed. Kyle Larson looked unbeatable for the first half of the race, but then the rubber came in
His car began to push and for the rest of the race there wasn't a clear cut favorite.
The track change allowed guys like Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, and Ricky Stenhouse to really make late charges and turn their days into a good finish.
But in the end the best came out on top. Jimmie Johnson showed why he had 82 career wins. He just doesn't go away.
The seven time champ proved his worth yet again.
Bristol you didn't disappoint. Don't ever change.
