Joey Logano earns a historic NASCAR victory in the Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Monday after a rain-delay on Sunday.
For the first time since 1970, the NASCAR Cup Series returns to racing on dirt. During the offseason, Bristol Motor Speedway was covered with dirt to offer fans a variety of racing venues this year. The NASCAR Truck Series has been racing on dirt the past couple of years at Eldora Speedway, but this was the grand return for the Cup Series. For drivers growing up sliding around dirt tracks, this is what reminds them of rising through the ranks of racing. For the other drivers growing up racing on asphalt, it was a learning experience.
