BRISTOL, Tenn. — The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East makes its first ever trip to the World's Fastest Half Mile on Friday.

Thirty-six drivers will try to win the inaugural Window Wax 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday. It's the first of 14 races on the schedule of the 26th year of the East Series, once known as the Busch North Series.

Among the entrants includes Travis Pastrana, who made three East Series starts a year ago, but failed to record a top 20 finish before an injury at the X Games ended his racing season.

Nelson Piquet Jr., son of the three-time Formula One champion, will attempt to make his East Series debut. He finished 10th in points in the Camping World Truck Series a year ago with six top five finishes.

Once again, there are several sons of former NASCAR winners. Ryan Blaney, son of Dave Blaney; Chase Elliott, son of Bill Elliott; Corey LaJoie, son of Randy LaJoie; and Chad Boat, son of IndyCar race winner Billy Boat.

Is this being televised? Would be cool to see some lower teir series racing live.
It does not appear that this race will be broadcast at all. Usually they do 44-minute replays on SPEED on Thursdays following races. It doesn't appear on this schedule

NASCAR Broadcast Times | NASCAR Home Tracks

If that's the case, then that will be the first East Series race not broadcast at all since 2008 at Thompson when Trevor Bayne won.

EDIT: Never mind, apparently that schedule is from last year. NASCAR Home Tracks has not updated the schedule yet.

EDIT 2: Just got off the phone with PR person for the East Series, he said a broadcast schedule should be finalized later this week.
