Tennessee Love

Roush Fenway has called Victory Lane at Bristol home in all three of NASCAR’s major divisions, including 11 NSCS wins. In addition, Roush Fenway has five wins at Bristol in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) and two wins in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS).

Runner Up

Roush Fenway’s history at Bristol began on April 10, 1988 with the No. 6 NSCS car earning a second-place finish. Since that time, in addition to the organization’s 11 NSCS wins at the track, Roush Fenway Fords have finished second at Bristol on 14 occasions (6 NSCS, 4 NXS, 4 NCWTS), including Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the spring of 2014 (NSCS).

One-Two Finish

Roush Fenway’s most recent victory at Bristol came after sweeping the top two positions in the March 2014 event with former driver Carl Edwards taking the victory and Stenhouse coming home in second. Edwards led the final 78 laps of the event to earn the victory.

10 Years and Going at “The Last Great Colosseum”

Roush Fenway’s history at Bristol has been that of hot streaks, including trips to Victory Lane in 10 of the last 14 seasons at the famed short track. Roush Fenway swept the track in 2003 and put a NSCS car in Victory Lane at least once in every season from 2002-2008.

Tale of the Tape

Roush Fenway has started 190 NSCS races at Bristol, recording a total of 11 victories, 47 top-five finishes, 81 top-10 finishes, an average finish of 15.9 and has led 3,396 laps.

Thunder on the Track

Roush Fenway has earned five victories, 23 top-five finishes, 36 top-10 finishes and an average finish of 14.1 at Bristol in the XFINITY Series. Former Roush Fenway driver David Ragan earned the organization’s most recent XFINITY victory at the .533-mile short track in the Aug. 2009 event.


Following Elliott Sadler’s fifth-place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, he is now eligible for the third round of the Dash-4-Cash program. If Sadler beats Regan Smith, Ryan Blaney and Daniel Suarez this weekend at Bristol, Sadler will win $100,000.

In the Points

Roush Fenway currently has all four XFINITY Series drivers inside the top 10 in the championship standings. Two-time race winner Buescher remains first, with Sadler, Bubba Wallace and Reed ranking fifth, sixth and 10th, respectively.
