The ARCA Menards Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway on Thursday September 16, 2021 for the Bush’s Best 200. On the stacked field of thirty entries, Zachary Tinkle is listed in the David Richmond #27 car, filling in for Tim Richmond, who continues to heal from his injuries suffered at Michigan International Speedway in August.
Tinkle commented, “It was a great experience racing for the Richmond team at DuQuoin. We survived the rough track with a Top 10 finish. I’m looking forward to getting on the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway. We’re hoping Tim heals and gets back in the seat soon. In the meantime, it’s very humbling that they invited me back to fill in for him.”
Tinkle has raced at Bristol Motor Speedway one time before in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in September 2020. He finished 6th in that race, fulfilling a lifelong dream of racing at that track. When Tinkle was just 9 years old, he visited Bristol Motor Speedway with his parents on a Thanksgiving weekend and declared to his mother when she took his picture, “I’m gonna race here someday!”
The Bush’s Best 200 will be broadcast from Bristol Motor Speedway on FS1 and MRN at 6:30 PM on Thursday September 16, 2021.
