The first short track race of the year is upon us"¦it is time to rejoice for the fans and time to buckle up for the drivers! Four races worth of hostilities toward their fellow driver might just allow for some score settling here at Bristol. The candidates for paybacks are plentiful. But perhaps the easiest feud to handicap is the Tony "Smoke" Stewart versus Kyle "The Shrub" Busch. They might be able to turn this sideshow part of the race weekend into a pay-per-view event"¦supporting many worthy charities of course! Perhaps http://www.wagernascar.com/ needs to have a proposition bet on how many laps it will be until Tony gives Kyle a little love tap. One thing’s for sure…get the popcorn ready before the race this week, folks. Boring racing is gone, and it is time for “Racin’ the Way It Oughta Be” to Return!

Remember when the #20 punted the #17 at the beach? They may have smoothed over differences, but watch out at Bristol if they’re racing side-by-side!
