A look at the broadcast information for the 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race from Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, a rare Saturday night race on the NASCAR circuit.
As the Chase for the Sprint Cup nears, the 2015 NASCAR season shifts to Tennessee for the Irwin Tools Night Race live from Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night. This is the 24th race of the season, with only two more races after this before The Chase begins.
Denny Hamlin, a winner of this race in 2012, captured the pole position during qualifying on Friday, looking for his second victory of the season. Hamlin — who ranks eighth in points this season — has seven top-five finishes in 2015.
