RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Two weeks of ho-hum racing has NASCAR fans starving for some on-track excitement.
A Saturday night stop at Richmond International Speedway couldn't have come at a better time.
Short track racing traditionally produces some of NASCAR's best racing, and the.75-mile oval at Richmond is the perfect venue for the bumping and banging that spices up the show.
There's been a shortage of that of late in NASCAR.
The last two races had a combined five cautions, which makes for long green-flag runs and spread-out fields.
Drivers seem to prefer that clean style of racing, but fans want more drama and they've been vocal the last month about their disappointment in the on-track product.
The drivers are aware of the dilemma heading into Saturday night's race.
