Larger than life Goldberg reigns over Bristol's wildly popular Food City 500 driver introductions once again in 2016
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 BristolTix.com or calling (855) 580-5525.
