The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series is headed to Bristol, Tennessee this weekend for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race, which will be held at Bristol Motor Speedway. The green flag will drop at 7:30 pm ET on Saturday, September 17, 2022, and the event will be telecast live on USA Network and PRN.

Saturday’s race will consist of 36 drivers who will compete for over 500 laps on the 0.533-mile short track, resulting in a 266.5-mile race. It features 26-30 degrees of banking on the turn and 6-10 degrees of banking on the straightaways.
Hendrick Motorsports driver Kyle Larson won last year’s Bass Pro Shops Night Race and is pegged as the favorite to win it again on Sunday.
The first two playoff races were won by two non-playoff drivers – Erik Jones and Bubba Wallace Jr., which means 16 playoff drivers have just one race in Round 16 to advance into the Round of 12.
Drivers who made the NASCAR playoffs included Austin Cindric, Kyle Larson, Alex Bowman, Chase Briscoe, William Byron, Ross Chastain, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Daniel Suarez, Tyler Reddick, Christopher Bell, Kevin Harvick, and Austin Dillon.
