NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth is anxious for the Sprint Cup Series to return to Bristol Motor Speedway for the IRWIN Tools Night Race on August 27th - so much so that he visited the track a few weeks early.
Kenseth, a two-time winner at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile, met on Thursday, August 11th with members of the media, and also made several fans very happy by giving them rides around the World’s Fastest Half-Mile in the golden 50th anniversary Ford Mustang pace car.
“I love coming to Bristol,” he said. “The 50th anniversary is pretty cool and the Night Race is always exciting. The Night Race, with the stands full of people, it is an event. The drivers, crew, everyone, looks forward to it. It’s always fun to be part of it; especially, if you can win."
