NASCAR Number: 5

March 18, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

Today's NASCAR Number is 5.

5: The number of drivers who have completed all 1,283 laps run in four NASCAR Sprints Cup Series races combined this season, down from nine before Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Points leader Brad Keselowski and second-place Dale Earnhardt Jr. head a list that also includes Greg Biffle, Paul Menard and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin each finished two laps down Sunday and fell off the list of drivers with perfect laps-completed records, as did Aric Almirola who crashed and completed 245 of the 500 laps. Mark Martin, who completed every lap in the first three Cup races, did not compete at Bristol.
