NASCAR really came back with some force once the season restarted, as drivers had to compete in five Cup Series races over the course of 15 days. But that grueling stretch comes to an end on Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee for the Supermarket Heroes 500, originally named the Food City 500.
What NASCAR probably also wants to put behind them with their previous races is the spate of weather-related delays and postponements that have plagued recent Cup Series races. Thursday's race in Charlotte, which was supposed to take place on Wednesday, was delayed for over an hour as rain that was expected to miss the track ended up causing the hour-long washout.
Kevin Harvick leads all drivers in the standings, followed closely by Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Alex Bowman and Brad Keselowski to round out the top five. For Sunday's race, Logano leads the group with the oddsmakers, as he sits at +650. Leading all racers is Kyle Busch, who is sitting 12th overall in the standings, but boasts +400 odds to take the checkered flag.

Just like every race so far in the NASCAR restart, this will be a spectatorless event in the hopes of limiting the spread of COVID-19.
"Like our fans, we are extremely disappointed that they will not be able to join us at The Last Great Colosseum for the race, but we understand these are unprecedented circumstances dictated by what's best for the health and safety of the general public," Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager, Bristol Motor Speedway said in a press release. "We ask every race fan to please tune in and watch Saturday's Cheddar's 300 presented by Alsco on FS1 and the milestone 60th running of the Food City 500 Sunday on FOX from the comfort of their homes."
