Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 Live Live scoring, TV, live streaming, updates for Sunday’s Food City 500 in Bristol. Watch the NASCAR XFINITY Series regulars battle it out at Bristol with info on how to watch the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 live.
For the NASCAR XFINITY Series regulars, there’s a big win to be had at the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. With no Cup Series drivers in the field, there are going to be 40 drivers gunning for a big win that could clinch a playoff spot, a rare commodity that has been hard to come by since Tyler Reddick is the lone XFINITY competitor to snag a victory in 2018.
For four drivers, Bristol will be a little more important — as in $100,000 more important. That’s because it’s the first Dash 4 Cash race of this season, with a cool six-digit sum on the line for Christopher Bell, Daniel Hemric, Cole Custer and Ryan Preece. Custer was the fastest car in final practice for Saturday’s race, meaning that he might have an edge of sorts.
There are also ongoing Dash 4 Cash implications for the race for everyone in the field. While the highest finisher out of Bell, Hemric, Custer and Preece will collect the check and be locked in for the next Dash 4 Cash race at Richmond, the top three XFINITY Series regulars other than that man will be eligible to win the 100 grand next race.
That gives this race the highest of stakes, and when you add in the inherent short track chaos that Bristol can cause on its own, this could very well be the most entertaining XFINITY Series race to date this season. Here’s all the info you need to watch it live:

The NASCAR Xfinity Series get the racing weekend started on Saturday afternoon with the running of the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300. Here are three drivers that we think should contend for the victory in this race.
According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Christopher Bell is the favorite in this race, as he is listed with 3/1 odds to win. Other short odds to prevail at Justin Allgaier (4/1), Cole Custer (13/2) and John Hunter Nemecheck (13/2). The Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 takes place from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee at 1PM ET and will air live on FS1.
96001 Justin Allgaier 4/1
Justin Allgaier won this race back in 2010 and he also earned a top-5 finish back in 2016. This year, Allgaier is still searching for his first victory, but he has finished runner-up two times. A two-time winner in the series last year, Allgaier is someone that has worked his way to the front many times and his experience at Bristol should help him against someone like Bell, who is making his first Xfinity Series start at the track.
96002 Cole Custer 13/2
Custer didn’t have a great first run at Bristol last year, finishing in 32nd place. However, he did bounce back to finish 10th in the fall race. This year, Custer started slow, but has been progressing. Over his last four races, he has improved his finish each time. He started with a ninth-place finish and then worked down to eighth, sixth and fourth. Should his momentum continue, he is line to earn his second win in the series.
96004 Elliott Sadler 8/1
Sadler is a former champion of this race, grabbing the victory in 2012. He also finished fourth in last year’s race. This season, Sadler has been very competitive. While he has yet to win, he has finished in the top 10 in all six races and in the top 5 in four of them. I like Sadler’s consistency to stay near the front of the pack. With a little luck, or some good pit stops, it can propel him to a win on Saturday.
CLEVELAND, OHIO — The old guard continues to dominate the NASCAR 2018 season as Kyle Busch won the pole in Friday’s qualifying for the Food City 500 in Bristol, Tenn.
The race is Sunday at 2 p.m. on FOX. There are two practice sessions today on FS1. Live streaming is available on FOX Sports Go. Live scoring and updates are available at NASCAR’s Race Center.
Also Saturday, Xfinity drivers will qualify at 9:30 a.m., then race in the afternoon at 1 p.m., both on FS1. So far, the best young cup driver has been Kyle Larson, 25, who sits 10th in the series standings with two top-five finishes and three top 10s, but no victories.
Larson is 114 points behind No. 1 Kyle Busch and 20 points behind No. 9 Denny Hamlin. To understand just how much separates the old guard from the new, each of the top nine drivers in the standings have led at least 38 laps over the first seven races of the season. While Larson sits 10th, he has yet to lead a lap. Austin Dillon, the next young gun sitting 13th, has only led one lap.
Fast facts: Busch’s win was the 44th of his career in the Cup series, tying him with Hall of Famer Bill Elliott for 16th all time. It took Elliott 632 starts to reach that number, while Busch got there in just 469 starts. … Daniel Suarez said on Twitter on Tuesday that he has a fracture in his left thumb. But Suarez has been cleared for this weekend’s event. … NASCAR announced Tuesday that Monster Energy will remain the series’ sponsor through 2019.
