NASCAR on the Bristol dirt: Start time, lineup, TV schedule and more for Food City Dirt Race
NASCAR waited more than 50 years for its Cup Series to race on dirt, so what's one more day?
Severe rain and flooding forced NASCAR to postpone both Sunday's Cup and Truck Series races at Bristol Motor Speedway to Monday, making an already unique event even more worrisome.
Bristol trucked 23,000 cubic yards of dirt into its famed bullring to host NASCAR's first Cup Series race on literal earth since 1970. But how the dirt — and the tires — will hold up during the race is still to be determined, especially after two days of rain.
Four Friday practice sessions ultimately showed the tires can't sustain the heavy wear on the dirt track. The three layers of dirt acted as a cheese-grater and the tires in turn dug deep divots into the surface, forcing NASCAR to make several procedural changes Saturday in a desperate bid to save the show.
Here's all the information you need to get ready for Monday's Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway:

Opinion: ‘We lost:’ This time when fighting racism, the sports world failed
It was March of 1991 when the NFL helped beat back racism.
That year, after the state of Arizona refused to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day a paid holiday, the way the rest of the country did, NFL owners voted to remove the 1993 Super Bowl from the state. It was moved to the Rose Bowl in California and the Phoenix area lost an estimated $200 million in Super Bowl-related revenue.
The NFL's decision led to a cascading of sports leagues withdrawals. Phoenix lost a bid for the 1994 NBA All-Star Game. That estimated revenue loss was $100 million. Notre Dame and the University of Virginia declined to play in the Fiesta Bowl. The Harlem Globetrotters treated Arizona like the Washington Generals and canceled all events in the state.
It was a remarkable moment in time. Leagues and players, from the powerful NFL to the Globetrotters, came together to not just make a statement against racism, but take actual action.
