Sometimes when you sit down to write a blog, you just don’t need a lot of words. Today is one of those days.

And for all practical purposes, today I only need two. And those words are “Thank You."

On this Memorial Day, and on every day, Bristol Motor Speedway offers a heartfelt appreciation to all the men and women who served and made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom and this great nation of ours.
