The winner of the NASCAR dirt race reflects on comments he made days before the race
Is he eating his words? Not exactly.
Last year, Bristol Motor Speedway brought in thousands of dirt truckloads. The race became the first NASCAR Cup Series race on the dirt in 50 years.
Ahead of the 2nd annual Bristol Dirt race last weekend, many drivers were vocal on wanting changes. They noted the track needing more water and removing the windshields, which would allow officials to drop said water.
Kyle Busch stated he wasn’t a fan of the event. He explained that dirt as a whole takes NASCAR backwards. The comments were previously stated by Richard Petty in 2020, he mirrored them.
