The NASCAR Cup Series is back on the road for the Bank of America Roval 400. And it promises to be an intriguing affair.
Road course racing isn’t for everyone; just ask Bubba Wallace. But with a spot in the Round of 8 up for grabs, you’d best believe drivers are going to be putting their pedal to the metal to give themselves a chance at glory.
It’s an environment that can breed stars; Tyler Reddick captured his first career Cup win on the road. So too did Daniel Suarez, Christopher Bell, Chase Elliott and A.J. Allmendinger have all shined on the surface, flourishing even as the race slows to a snail’s pace.
So, who will win out? Only time will tell. But it will be memorable, one way or another.
