NASCAR Race Weekend Central

Entry List: Food City 500

Two consecutive weeks of short track racing begins this weekend as the Sprint Cup Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the first of two races this season.

There are 40 cars entered in the Food City 500 and all will compete on Sunday afternoon, barring entry list additions.

Ty Dillon returns to Stewart-Haas Racing this weekend and will replace Tony Stewart for third time this season. He previously competed at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway, where he finished 17th and 15th respectively in the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet.

Defending race winner Matt Kenseth will look to return to Victory Lane on Sunday after placing outside of the top 10 in six of the first seven races. His victory one year ago was the first of five in 2015

Action from Bristol begins on Friday with opening practice at 11 a.m. followed by qualifying at 4:15 p.m. (all times ET). Practice resumes on Saturday morning with the first session at 8:30 a.m. and the second taking place at 11 a.m. Coverage of the Food City 500 will be on FOX starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
