What to watch for in NASCAR Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race

Now that you know how to watch the NASCAR Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race, here’s what you need to watch for! Last week’s race was capped off with a victory lap by Brad Keselowski of Team Penske. He ranks third in total playoff points behind the two racers that pose the greatest threat to win the Race for the Cup — Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin.

Heading into Bristol, those three are the only racers confirmed to compete in the Round of 12’s three-race set. The Cup Series’ last trip to Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee was for the NASCAR All-Star Race in which Chase Elliott of Hendrick Motorsports came out on top. Elliott placed fifth in the previous race to maintain his position as a viable underdog threat to win the 2020 Chase for the Cup.

Another under-the-radar racer to keep an eye on is Austin Dillion, who finished fourth in Richmond and was the runner-up in the previous race at Darlington Raceway. It’s highly likely that Dillion moves onto the Round of 12, where he has a chance to upset some of his favored peers.
