Bell Prepared For ‘Physical’ Bristol Dirt Race

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Christopher Bell knows Sunday’s Food City Dirt Race, the first race for the NASCAR Cup Series on a dirt surface since 1970, isn’t going to be a traditional dirt-track event. “Dirt racing with these stock cars, you have to really hustle them around the race track. “Basically, any rain is going to, what we classify as, lose the track. “If we get a lot of downpours and heavy rainfall, it’s going to be harder for them to prepare the race track. The more rain that we get, the longer the time that’s needed to regain the race track. On top of that, the more water that they get in the surface … and this is something that I’m sure they’re really careful about, but we can’t really do rough race tracks. The more water content the dirt has, the softer the dirt is going to be and the more rough the race track is going to be.
