Watch a fan confront Kyle Busch after Bristol night race

They make up the top-three in Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series points.

With Harvick, Busch and Truex having combined to win 17 of the first 23 races, Bowyer, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Erik Jones and Austin Dillon are the only other drivers to have automatically qualified for the playoffs with wins.

Larson has only four top-10 finishes in the last 10 races (40%) and that means he is trending the wrong direction. Busch will be seeking his eighth Cup victory at Bristol in tonight's race.

Busch had just come off a night in which he worked his way all the way up to second, but collided with Martin Truex Jr. and ended up finishing 20th.

"I'm starting to hear rumors", Truex said.

Kurt Busch had a good restart and Kyle Larson, on fresher tires, desperately tried to catch him.

"Bristol Motor Speedway appreciates the fan accessibility provided by NASCAR drivers, and we will work to ensure that fans and drivers continue to have great experiences together at BMS", the track statement said. "I think you can take a not so good driver and put them in a great vehicle, and they'll run 15th". "That's as simple as it gets".

That is enough votes to force Bathaei to come to parliament to answer questions on his record in the next 10 days. The lawmakers, who have already impeached his labor and economy ministers this month, were unimpressed.

"I didn't think I was next to him yet, and I clipped him and sent him for a whale of a ride", Busch said, according to the Post.

But with seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson also in need of a new sponsor to replace Lowes Home Improvement at Hendrick Motorsports, the sponsorship landscape has Truex waiting, even during another championship-caliber season. There are two races remaining before the playoffs begin.

There's not much, logistically, that NASCAR or individual tracks can do; the way that these tracks are designed, there are too many choke points between hauler, garage, track and airstrip for fans to get right up next to drivers.

"The biggest thing for us as a group (is) we've kind of been in this situation before", he said. "I don't know. I can tell you that everything is based upon that".

"You've seen these playoffs and how these three weeks at a time work", said Harvick, who comes off a win in MI last Sunday.

After an open weekend, the series heads to Darlington for their "Throwback Weekend", and the Southern 500 on September 2. We sat on the pole, led the most laps, at a flat one-mile track.
