NASCAR at Bristol live updates, results and highlights from the 2021 Bass Pro Shops night race

Three drivers are already locked in for the next round of the round of 12 of the NASCAR Cup Series. Nine spots remain up for grabs heading into the Bass Pro Shops night race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Those three are the winners of the first two playoff races, Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr., and the regular-season winner, Kyle Larson, who secured points at Richmond Raceway last Saturday.

Several drivers are in a pretty good position. Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Kevin Harvick need less than 30 points to move on. Chase Elliott and Christopher Bell are both in their 40s. And if any driver wins who has not yet secured a spot, they will automatically enter.

No active driver has won more at Bristol than Kyle Busch with his three victories.

NASCAR playoffs at Bristol: Kyle Larson wins as tempers flare between Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick

In the years after the track was reconfigured in 2007, many a lament of a NASCAR traditionalist came to pit "Old Bristol" against "New Bristol" after a number of races lacking the high contact, highly-strung racing that made the half-mile Tennessee oval famous. If Saturday night is any indication, the old and new Bristol Motor Speedway are one and the same, as the 2021 edition of the Bristol Night Race is one that won't soon be forgotten.

After a late-race dustup between Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick while racing for the lead, Kyle Larson was able to take the top spot from Harvick in the final laps and hold on to win the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. Larson was able to use momentum from the high side to put a slidejob on Harvick, and then held onto his car after receiving the bump and run before navigating lapped traffic in a way that kept Harvick from getting to his bumper on the final lap.

"That was an awesome race. It was so cool to be able to race there for the win," Larson told NBC Sports. "Obviously Harvick and Chase got together and Chase was upset and kind of held him up, and it got Harvick having to move around and use his tires up off the bottom.

"I started to get some diamonds working off (turns) 1 and 2, and just got a big run and decided to pull the trigger and slide him and squeeze him a little bit. And then he had me jacked up down the front stretch, and it was wild. Had my hands full."

Unofficial Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race Top 10:

1. #5 - Kyle Larson
2. #4 - Kevin Harvick
3. #24 - William Byron
4. #12 - Ryan Blaney
5. #48 - Alex Bowman
6. #2 - Brad Keselowski
7. #19 - Martin Truex Jr.
8. #43 - Erik Jones
9. #11 - Denny Hamlin
10. #21 - Matt DiBenedetto

The finish was set up by contact between Harvick and Elliott, as Harvick doored Elliott while racing for the lead in the closing laps, cutting a left front tire down on Elliott's car. After rejoining the race, Elliott sideswiped Harvick's car down the back stretch, and then stayed in Harvick's line, impeding his pace and allowing Larson to close in to make the race-winning move.

Elliott and Harvick ended up having multiple animated conversations on pit road after the race, with the two being separated before continuing their conversation in the privacy of Elliott's hauler.

"I just told him it was a kind of chicken shit move that he did there at the end," fumed Harvick. "We're racing for the freaking win at Bristol, we're three-wide in the middle, and he throws a temper tantrum. I was just trying to get the lead and race him hard. Then he pulls up in front of me and just sits there until I lose the whole lead ... I watched him let the No. 24 go by, and then anytime you run into him, it's a problem.

"... I lost so much there, and then when I got behind the car I kept getting tight off the corner and I couldn't run my line ... [Damn,] I'm ready to rip somebody's freaking head off."

"It's something he does all the time. He runs into your left side constantly at other tracks, and then sometimes it does cut down your left side, other times it doesn't," Elliott said. "He did it to me in Darlington a few weeks ago because he was tired of racing with me, and whether he did it on purpose, it doesn't matter. At some point you've got to draw the line.

"I don't care who he is or how long he's been doing it. I'm gonna stand up for myself and my team, and we'll go on down the road."

While all that occurred, the final race of the round of 16 saw four drivers eliminated from playoff contention: Aric Almirola and Tyler Reddick were both eliminated despite valiant efforts, which saw the two recover from a faulty oil line and losing a lap respectively to be in the mix to advance in the final laps. Kurt Busch was eliminated after struggling with the handling of his car throughout the night, and Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell was eliminated after an unremarkable night.

With a third place finish, William Byron was able to recover from a major points deficit entering the night to advance to the round of 12. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch and Christopher Bell were able to hang onto spots in the round of 12 despite both suffering cut tires in the closing laps.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Bristol - NASCAR ON FOX HIGHLIGHTS

Three drivers are already locked up for the next round of the 12 NASCAR Cup Series round. Nine more places are still up for grabs before the Bass Pro Shops night race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Those three are the winners of the first two playoff races – Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. – and the regular season winner – Kyle Larson – who scored points at the Richmond Raceway last Saturday.

Several pilots are in a fairly good position. Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Kevin Harvick all need less than 30 points to move on. Chase Elliott and Christopher Bell are both under 40. And if a driver wins who has not yet secured a spot, he is automatically entered.

No active driver has won in Bristol more than Kyle Busch with his three wins.

NASCAR playoff race at Bristol: Start time, lineup, TV, streaming schedule for Bass Pro Shops Night Race

Two NASCAR Cup Series playoff races are in the books, and three drivers have punched their tickets to the Round of 12. 

It has been a successful opening round for Joe Gibbs Racing, which celebrated victories at Darlington Raceway with Denny Hamlin and at Richmond Raceway one week ago with Martin Truex Jr. Hendrick Motorsports also got some good news at Richmond when regular-season champion Kyle Larson clinched a berth in the next round of the playoffs on points.

Now the action turns to Tennessee's Bristol Motor Speedway for the first elimination race of the playoffs. Following Saturday night's race, four drivers will be sent packing and see their 2021 championship aspirations dashed, while nine additional drivers will join Hamlin, Truex and Larson in the second round.
