I saw Mike Bliss do it in a truck too. Wild ride.
One thing you learn living in east TN, never believe the forecast and wait and see what happens. I've seen days with 100% chance of rain and it be dry all day.
hopes for best expects worse
Praying. I think we all see 100% and think that means 100% of the day. But it reallly means there is a 100% chance that it will rain at some point Sunday. I hope that is all it means?
That's not just limited to eastern TN. You've described just about everywhere.
The racing vortex in action. Cool.
OMG I was about to post the same thing.
15 years ago this happened....
Also, Phil Hill would have been 90 today, The only American-born F1 champion
Sorry, but that is fake. Nice Photoshopping job.
Was it the vortex or the fake coliseum facade that clued you in? Of course it's fake. It wasn't meant to deceive.
Some people ya know.
It's just a 'still' from one of their 'Last Coliseum' ads.
I thought I recognized it from somewhere. It's really cool though.
It would be cool if they actually did change the facade to resemble a coliseum.
And put in more bathrooms and beer stands while they're at it.

NOT CONFIRMED...but starting to hear rumblings that they're thinking of canceling all track activities tomorrow.

Bristol moves victory lane for NASCAR Cup race to frontstretch. Victory lane has been above buildings inside Turn 3 but facing infield
Victory Lane the way it ought'a be!
I think that picture is Photoshoped. They've never had more than 8 planes take part in their flyover.
And they tore down the Lion entry gates a couple a hundred years ago.
One of my all-time favorite ads.
I set that as my wallpaper before their races.

I suggest lining all the drivers up today, one lap around the track and declare the winner of the Bristol 880.
I'm hoping the weather will cooperate but it's not looking good. So bummed. I always really look forward to Bristol
Tire: Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials
Cup: 4 sets for practice, 1 set for qualifying/start of race and 7 sets for the race;
Xfinity: 6 sets for the event
Tire Codes: Left-side -- D-4416; Right-side -- D-4526
Tire Circumference: Left-side -- 87.64 in. (2,226 mm); Right-side -- 88.43 in. (2,246 mm)
Minimum Recommended Inflation:
Left Front -- 20 psi; Left Rear -- 18 psi;
Right Front -- 43 psi; Right Rear -- 40 psi
Storyline - At Bristol, Good Racing is as Simple as Black (Rubber) and White (Concrete): Goodyear brings a unique tire combination that matches up well with the concrete surface at Bristol. This tire set-up lays down rubber quickly, which helps create multiple racing grooves and makes for the highly competitive racing that Bristol is known for. While Bristol is a short track, it also has speedway characteristics. Goodyear's left- and right-side tire constructions are built with both in mind -- optimizing handling, as well as withstanding the loads and speeds generated by the steep banking.
Notes: Teams in both the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series will run the same Goodyear tire set-up at Bristol this week . . . this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that NASCAR teams have run at Bristol since August 2014 . . . Bristol is the only track at which NASCAR teams are scheduled to run either of these two tire codes . . . unlike on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, on which teams generally do not run inner liners in their tires, teams are required to run liners in their right-side tires only at Bristol . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
Another person indicated they thought it was real. I was just responding to them in case they didn't know.
You beat me to it!
I think this was taken from McMurray's airplane/helicopter?
Not even close. The hint, among other things, was there is no such thing as a racing vortex. Jeeeesh. Have a good day.
