Last week’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Bristol wins the top spot in “Was It A Good Race?” Twitter poll. The poll is run by renowned NASCAR journalist Jeff Gluck since 2016.
Every race week, He posts a Twitter poll asking his followers one single question, “Was it a good race?”. The only acceptable response is ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Additionally, the polls are exclusively conducted on the day after the race.
Motorsports journalist Jeff Gluck writes about the recent poll result on his Twitter. Gluck writes, “2020 Bristol edges the 2018 Bristol night race to claim the No. 1 spot in the “Was It A Good Race?” poll. Two of the top five races (out of 158 polled) have now taken place since NASCAR returned. Here’s a look at the updated top 10 (started in 2016)”
More than twenty thousand people participated in this week’s poll and 94.9% of them voted in favor of the race. It edged out 2018’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Bristol.
Bristol was the first short track race after NASCAR’s return from the lockdown. And the race was filled with incidents and interesting moments. First, Danny Hamlin got a puncture that ended his run. After that, Chase Elliott and Joey Logano had an incident that took both of them out laps before the race ended.
Before that, Joey Logano was leading the race and Elliott was just a few seconds behind him. The aggressive driving from Elliott cost both the drivers greatly. They finished the race out of the top twenty spots.
Brad Keselowski inherited the lead with just a few laps remaining and took the win. However, Brad had to fight off multiple attempts from Clint Bowyer to take the win in last week’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
