Race Preview: Goody’s Fast Relief 500

31 Mar

The Sprint Cup Series shifts back east to the hot-bed of NASCAR this weekend with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500.

These race names continue to get weirder and weirder… and the NASCAR stereotypes continue to prove true. (Or maybe not… I just discovered that “Goody’s Fast Relief” has nothing to do with flatulence. It’s pain relief.)

This week, the “500” in the name refers to the number of laps in the race. Last week, the number in the race name stood for the number of miles. (It’s confusing, I know).

The Goody’s Fast Relief 500 is race #6 (out of 36) on the Sprint Cup circuit. Race coverage on Sunday starts at 12:30 PM on FOX.

Below the logo, find everything you need to prepare for this weekend’s race.
