Watch Out For Roush/Fenway Racing This Weekend In Bristol

It seems like all of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway are all very unpredictable. While there are your usual heavy hitters, carnage can happen at any given moment and take the favorites out around any corner.

So far this season, both haven’t fared very well. They sit 22nd (Ricky Stenhouse Jr.) and 28th (Trevor Bayne) in the…
