How does someone become an American’s Night Race Neighborhood Hero?
To kick off the program, Bristol Motor Speedway and its sponsors researched key headlines across the country to select the neighborhood heroes. Moving forward, anyone can nominate a hero. Nominations are open now will be accepted until the first Friday of May. (May 3, 2019)
How many Neighborhood Heroes will you recognize each year?
It depends. We love heroic, patriotic and altruist stories. Sometimes that’s a group of people working together to make great things happen, and sometimes it’s one individual. The BMS steering committee and sponsors will make the final decision.
