Some of the most memorable moments in NASCAR history have taken place during the Bass Pro Shops Night Race on the super-challenging .533-mile high-banked concrete oval. NASCAR’s best drivers will go doorhandle to doorhandle – NASCAR Playoff style – and only the strongest will survive 500 laps of mayhem and chaos on the iconic short track.

In the NASCAR Cup Series Bass Pro Shops Night Race (Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m.), you’ll get to see all of your favorite drivers racing hard to advance in the Playoffs, including Bristol dominator Kyle Busch, recent Night Race winners Denny Hamlin and Chris Buescher, fan-favorites Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson, top contenders Ryan Blaney, William Byron, Tyler Reddick and Ross Chastain, and veteran drivers Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano.

Sparks are sure to fly in the Food City 300, as NASCAR Xfinity Series favorites Justin Allgaier, Austin Hill, Parker Kligerman, Jesse Love, Sammy Smith and Chandler Smith will be trying to lock in their playoff positions (Sept. 20, 7:30 p.m.). Meanwhile, Earnhardt Jr. is entered in his No. 88 Hellmann’s Chevy and will make his second consecutive Bristol race appearance. Last year the NASCAR Hall of Famer led 47 laps and seemed like he had the car to beat before an electrical wire in his dash caught fire late in the race, ending his night and relegating him to a 30th place finish.

In the Craftsman Truck Series, Ben Rhodes, Corey Heim, Nick Sanchez, Rajah Caruth, spring Bristol winner Christian Eckes and veteran challenger Grant Enfinger will be among the talented drivers battling for the victory Thursday night in the UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics. The race is the opener for the Round of 8 Playoffs (Sept. 19, 9 p.m.). The rising stars in the ARCA Menards Series also will take on the challenging half-mile bullring in the Bush’s Beans 200 as part of a Thursday night doubleheader (Sept. 19, 5 p.m., FS1, MRN Radio).
