51 Days Until Night Racing Returns to the Last Great Colosseum
Scoring its third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win of the season, the No. 51 truck rocketed into Bristol Motor Speedway's Victory Lane in August 2009.
Showing the way for 82 of 200 laps, the Kyle Busch-driven machine survived five cautions en route to the win.
"I love this place. It's fun for all drivers," said Las Vegas, Nev. native. "It's a fun place to race, and for some reason I have really taken to the new surface."
Busch, who holds the distinction of hoisting the track's legendary trophy more times than any other driver, broke the then record-setting consecutive win streak of eventual 2009 NCWTS Points Champion Ron Hornaday, Jr.
"You want to be that guy that sets those records and does all that stuff," the 15-time Bristol winner remarked in his 2009 post-race interview. "I want to be the Ron Hornady. It's cool what Ron's done - that's very, very good. I was proud that we were able to him tonight."
In 51 days, Busch and his counterparts attempt to again rewrite the history books on the banks of the Last Great Colossuem. Tickets for Wednesday's night doubleheader - the Whelen Modified 150 and UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP - start at just $35 for adults with free entry for children 12 and under.
Cost to experience a full weekend of racing at the famed short track begins at only $99 and includes the Wednesday doubleheader plus Friday's Sprint CupÂ knock out qualifying runs and the newly extended Food City 300 along with Saturday's fight under the lights at the IRWIN Tools Night Race.
