Some changes were made to the Bristol surface. The bottom lane has been "polished" with some kind of substance in hopes of bringing back the inside line. The idea was suggested by Dale Earnhardt Jr and Tony Stewart previously iirc.

I can't speak for myself, but based on what I'm told, Gaulding's mere presence is a caution or three waiting to happen.

(Jeb is a mess.)

Bristol, good or bad race, usually tends to have an interesting, so I'll definitely be waiting forward toward it.

Has a reputation from his K&N days. Racehub did a story on him, and in it they were showing him and his sister(?, might of just been an random girl) backyard go-kart racing, and Gray spun the girl to win. Apparently that's all you need to know about him.

Lets say it "works", and Bristol becomes the single groove, you're only fast on the bottom line track that it was prior to the renovation. What's the over/under on how long until people whine that they screwed it all up again?

Yes.

One thing I've learned from watching racing is that people will always find a reason to complain. Willing to bet the griping about this has started already.
