Johnson, Harvick, Patrick Among Drivers Taking Part in Food City Race Night at BMS March 16
Food City Race Night, one of NASCAR’s largest and most popular fan events, features a number of racing’s biggest stars in the free event Friday, March 16 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Among the heavy hitters taking part in Food City Race Night is five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, along with Kevin Harvick, Danica Patrick, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Burton and Clint Bowyer.
Johnson takes to the stage in the BMS hospitality area to play his video game Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With an Engine, along with some lucky fans selected from the audience that evening.
Harvick and wife Delana, who recently announced they are expecting their first child, will play Baby 101, a game designed to test their knowledge and skills of newborns. This portion of the event promises to be one of the night’s highlights.
Greg Biffle, Burton, Patrick and Kenseth kick off the night’s activities with question and answer sessions while crowd favorite Wii Boxing also returns with three-time and defending champion Elliott Sadler leading the charge. Sadler’s brother Hermie joins Clint Bowyer, Ricky Stenhouse, Justin Allgaier and Austin Dillon on the fight card as they attempt to dethrone the champ.
