Drivers Select Songs For Pre-Race At IRWIN Tools Night Race
If Carl Edwards’ song selection for driver introductions before Saturday’s IRWIN Tools Night Race is any indication, he is feeling rather optimistic about his chances for a third Sprint Cup win at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Edwards will walk out to “Run This Town” by Jay Z, obviously thinking he has a good chance to leave Bristol with another victory.
Five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson seems to be issuing a warning with his choice of Jim Croce’s “Don’t Mess Around With Jim”, while teammate Jeff Gordon, a five-time winner at BMS, is going with Nelly’s “E.I.”, in which Gordon is mentioned. Mark Martin’s choice is “La Grange” by ZZ Top and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is keeping his music under wraps until he walks down the ramp.
Kevin Harvick, who won the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 at BMS Wednesday night, and feels like he will contend on Saturday, will be introduced to “Show Me What You Got”, by Jay-Z. Clint Bowyer is going country with “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way”, by Waylon Jennings and Jeff Burton is splitting his song between Dolly Parton’s “Coal Keeps The Lights On” and “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns ‘n’ Roses. “Gypsy Road” by Cinderella is Paul Menard’s selection.
Defending IRWIN Tools Night Race winner Kyle Busch’s entrance song is “Rowdy Busch” featuring Raytona500 and Denny Hamlin is going with “Bad Meets Evil” by Fast Lane. Joey Logano is showing his love for all sports by making his walk to the ESPN theme song.
For Matt Kenseth, he’s hoping he’ll be “Indestructible”, as he strolls in to the Disturbed tune with teammate Greg Biffle opting for the theme song from the classic television comedy, “Sanford and Son.” “I’m From The Country”, by Tracy Byrd will signal David Ragan’s entrance.
Tony Stewart is changing things up with Derek Miller’s “Throw the Hammer Down,” while Ryan Newman wants Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor” played as he enters the track. Kasey Kahne wants the crowd to hear “Made In America” by Toby Keith when he walks into the stadium.
Kurt Busch’s selection is sure to draw some laughs as he would like to hear “I Like Big Butts” by Sir Mix A Lot as he is introduced. David Reutimann is going with “Pretty Fly For A White Guy” by The Offspring and J.J. Yeley’s choice is LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy And I Know It.”
