The NASCAR Cup Series calendar for 2024 will no longer feature a dirt race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Despite this change, Bristol will continue to hold two race dates, both of which will be held on the concrete surface.

The dirt race, which took place in April of this year, marked the final running of this event at Bristol Motor Speedway. Bristol has confirmed that the dirt race will not be included in the NASCAR Cup Series schedule for 2024.

However, Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, known for its four-turn, 0.533-mile high-banked oval, will still host two races as it has done since 1961. Both of these races will be held on the track’s concrete surface.

This announcement was made prior to the round of 16 final, which is scheduled to take place at the track on Saturday night. Since last year’s playoffs, the concrete surface of the track has not hosted a Cup Series race until the 500-lap Bass Pro Shops Night Race.

Buescher is aiming to create history by advancing to the round of 12 for the first time in his career. This year marks his return to the playoff field since his debut in 2016.

Kyle Larson, the winner of the initial playoff race at Darlington Raceway, has already secured a spot in the round of 12 and is considered the frontrunner for Saturday night’s race. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, new customers can receive a guaranteed $200 by signing up and placing a single $5 bet. Buescher is currently ranked at +1200, placing him outside the top five contenders.

Despite the fact that the schedule for 2024 has not been made public yet, it is expected that the initial Bristol race of the year will take place in the spring, similar to its previous years as a dirt race before transitioning to dirt. The second race is anticipated to remain a playoff night race.

The live broadcast of the Bass Pro Shops Night Race from Bristol Motor Speedway will commence at 6:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night, airing on USA Network. It is worth noting that this broadcast will begin an hour earlier than the original plan.
