Here’s what the night race at the World’s Fastest Half Mile is like from row 1, turn 3. Everything but the wind and the debris! From Driver Introductions to the Fireworks Finale, Bristol Motor Speedway knows how to put on a show. Its a moving experience to say the Pledge of Allegiance with 165,000 other people and then listen to children of the drivers belt out our National Anthem as the American flag comes parachuting from above right before the fighter jets fly-over. Even though the threats by Brad Keselowski to take out Kyle Busch never developed, the 500 lap Sprint Cup race included Jimmie Johnson crashing right in front of us. The night ended with Kyle making history, sweeping the Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Truck races at Bristol. Like it or not…!!
