NASCAR at Bristol: TV schedule, lineup, qualifying drivers for Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race

Sporting News — (Thomas Lott)

Kevin Harvick is finally starting to find his groove. He won his second race of the year last week at Michigan and is starting to round into form as the playoffs creep closer and closer.

But this week the Cup Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway, where it pays to be a Busch brother.

Kyle and Kurt Busch have combined to win each of the last four races at the 0.533-mile track (Kyle 3, Kurt 1) and the two even dueled for the win earlier this season with Kyle coming out on top and Kurt finishing as the runner-up.

Both drivers already have their playoff spots locked up with wins this season, but you can bet they'll be dueling once again for supremacy in Tennessee.

Clint Bowyer, Daniel Suarez, Jimmie Johnson and Paul Menard are also some names to watch as they all sit right on the cutline of the playoffs and a win would guarantee any of them a spot in the last-16.

What time does the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race start?

The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race will take place Saturday, August 17. Live coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. ET.

What channel is the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race on?
