Jayski: Cup winner will have new place to celebrate at Bristol

The winner of Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Fodd City 500 race at Bristol Motor Speedway will have a new place to celebrate. Victory Lane will be moved to the frontstretch, putting it closer to the fans.

The winner of Saturday's Xfinity race at Bristol will go to the Victory Lane location on the roof of a building between turns 3 and 4.

This will be the third time this season that a Cup winner celebrated on the frontstretch. Atlanta and Martinsville each had Victory Lane on its frontstretch. Another change is that Bristol has been using a tire-dragging machine, called the Tire Dragon, to increase the grip in the corners.
