Brad Keselowski Sounds off on Bristol's Dirt Race Future

NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski isn't certain that NASCAR will continue to run a dirt race in Bristol in the near future.

With this weekend marking the annual Bristol Night Race, it has Brad Keselowski looking at the bigger picture about the famed 'Last Great Coliseum'.

The spring race at Bristol has been run on dirt for the last three years, and well that was by far an interesting twist for the Bristol, Tennesee short track, but it hasn't paid off.

Drivers haven't really needed to push the agenda that the Bristol Dirt needs to go, but the racing itself has shown why it is no longer needed.

Keselowski shared his feelings about Bristol Motor Speedway, and why it needs two races on its normal concrete surface with Fox Sports' Bob Pockrass.

"Yeah I think a lot of intrigue over what's going to happen with Bristol with the spring and the fall race, things going on at the fairgrounds, North Wilkesboro, but if we end up with two races on the concrete at Bristol, I don't think you'll hear many complaints," Keselowski said. "I think Bristol is an iconic track and one serving a year doesn't feel like enough."

Keselowski was part of the high as co-owner last season when Chris Buescher won the Bristol Night Race. Clearly, he would like to get a chance at winning for a fourth time at the famed track how it's supposed to be. Bristol is meant to be it's concrete surface.

You tried the dirt, and it mainly didn't pay off, NASCAR you should probably start listening to some of the drivers on this one.
