The 2019 OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series Food City 500 race at Bristol Motor Speedway started with Stephen Carey capturing the pole and Josh Mayeu recording the fastest lap of the race. Sean Beyer gained 19 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Kevin Rupert led 106 laps, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in no cautions with 8 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with 3 disconnects in a 29 car field ending with Kevin Rupert capturing his 1st win of the season with Dwayne McArthur finishing 2nd, Joel Kilburn 3rd and Josh Mayeu capturing 4th.

This week the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series moves to the Toyota Owners 400 night race at Richmond Raceway with the current playoff leader Joel Kilburn looking for ways to maintain his lead in the Series.

The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?

We shall see when the green flag drops at 11:40 am Eastern time.

In the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series points championship, Josh Mayeu 2nd, Dwayne McArthur 3rd, in Mike Schrader 4th and Eddie Jones in 5th

The Richmond night race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
