Bill Goldberg, one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all time, will once again pump fans up as pre-race host for April 17's Food City 500.

Bristol Motor Speedway's driver introductions are unique on the NASCAR circuit as drivers select a song to play as they arrive in style at the Last Great Colosseum. Mixed together with Goldberg's famous voice and booming personality, the intros have become a fan favorite on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule.

"It's always an honor lending a hand to NASCAR in doing what they do," said Goldberg, a world champion in both World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). "To be asked back to Bristol, where my NASCAR experience began over 20 years ago, is a special invitation that I could never pass up!"

In addition to emceeing the Food City 500 intros, Goldberg will be on hand Saturday during the pre-race experience prior to the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race. He will also make appearances throughout the weekend, including at Yee-Haw Banks and Brews.

This is Goldberg's second appearance at Bristol, having served as pre-race host during last year's Food City 500.

Tickets are still available for the Food City 500 race weekend by visiting or calling (855) 580-5525.
