Racingone Weekend Preview

33945Jpg
A historic weekend in Bristol with the debut of the "Car of Tomorrow" tops the weekend schedule of racing which also includes the season opener for the Indy Racing League at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

After nearly seven years of development, the next evolution of the NEXTEL Cup car will be unveiled Sunday in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. The race will be the first of 16 races for the new "Car of Tomorrrow," which is now expected to be implemented for the entire 2008 season.

While there have been several tests to shake down the new machine, Sunday's race is full of unknown factors, which should make for an interesting day of racing.

Kurt Busch is the defending Food City 500 winner while Matt Kenseth was victorious in last August's visit to "Thunder Valley."

RacingOne will carry Live Qualifying for the Food City 500 Friday afternoon at 3:45 p.m. (ET).

Saturday afternoon will find the NASCAR Busch Series in action at the high-banked half-mile oval for the Sharpie Mini 300, slated for a 3 p.m. ET start. ABC and PRN provide the coverage.

Sunday's Food City 500 will take the green flag at 2 p.m. (ET) and be televised live by FOX with PRN providing radio coverage.

RacingOne will have the latest from Bristol all weekend including late-breaking news, statistics, results, photos, audio feature and post-race analysis.

The 12th season for the Indy Racing League will kick off Saturday night under the lights at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The XM Satellite Radio 300 will take the green flag at 8 p.m. (ET) with live coverage on ESPN2.

Sam Hornish, Jr. looks to repeat his 2006 championship and Dan Wheldon shoots for back-to-back Homestead wins.

The IRL is part of a tripleheader weekend at Homestead that will also see the Rolex Grand American Road Racing Series in action Saturday afternoon in the Grand Prix of Miami at 2 p.m. ET (SPEED).

The USAC Silver Crown Series will begin its 2007 season at Homestead on Friday afternoon as well.

The ARCA RE/MAX Series is also in the "Sunshine State" this weekend with a visit to Lakeland, Florida's USA International Speedway set for Saturday night.

The World of Outlaws are also in action this weekend with a Saturday night stop set for Tennessee's Volunteer Speedway.
