The NASCAR Nationwide Series race circuit headed to Bristol Motor Speedway tonight for the Food City 300 on the schedule, which saw the Nationwide Series standings as tight as ever heading into the race. Chase Elliott continues took a lead into the standings by a mere ten points over Regan Smith, who had been leading earlier in the season. But instead, in a surprise result, the winner was someone else entirely.
Tonight’s NASCAR Nationwide race winner was Ryan Blaney, who only led a total of seven out of the three hundred laps. He stole it away at the end from Kyle Busch, who led for more than half the race before finishing with a second place result. Chase Elliott, who led fifty-seven laps and finished in third, will remain atop the Nationwide leaderboard for another week. Regan Smith ended up finishing in sixth place.
The next race on the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule is the Great Clips Benefiting Feed The Children race on Saturday night, August 30th, at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
