If you’re into parity, then NASCAR suddenly becomes the sporting organization for you as it heads into its eighth race of the season — the Blue-Emu 400 — boasting seven different winners over its first seven races.
That’s a nod to the “Next Gen” car that has offered the promise of leveling the playing field — though bettors are likely having a difficult time trying to decipher who will take the checkered flag next.
The Blue-Emu 400 is carried out at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia, consisting of 400 trips around a 0.526-mile oval track. Here’s how you can watch all the action:
