Joey Logano won the rain delayed Food City NASCAR Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The last time the Cup Series raced on dirt was 1970, 51 years ago.

Logano grabbed the lead on lap 193 from Daniel Suarez, leading the final 250 laps including three laps in overtime.

“Man, it’s incredible,” Logano said. “How about Bristol on dirt? This is an incredible, unbelievable racetrack – great job by everyone that prepped the track. Obviously, a lot of work over here the last few days.

Bristol Motor Speedway executive and general manager Jerry Caldwell announced during the race that NASCAR will return to the Bristol dirt in 2022.
