BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - There's an expectation from fans that a ticket to Bristol Motor Speedway will get them a seat to NASCAR's version of the Roman Colosseum.
They got one of those throwback, rock `em, sock `em races last August, when changes to the track surface forced drivers to get aggressive again and caused tempers to flare.
Now, a month into a new Sprint Cup season, NASCAR could use another race like that one.
Sunday's race will be the fourth for the new Gen-6 car, and the first this season on a short track. It could be the spark NASCAR needs at a time people seem to be holding their breath.
Only this week, nobody knows what to expect at a track once beloved for its action-packed racing and drama it produced.
