Monday's NASCAR K&N Pro Series test session open to public; See Travis Pastrana take first laps at BMS
More than two dozen K&N Pro Series East drivers, including Pastrana and Chase Elliott, son of former NASCAR Cup champion Bill Elliott, test their skills at BMS in preparation for the K&N East 125 at BMS Saturday, March 17. And fans who purchase tickets that day to any March race weekend event (March 16-18) will get to view the test from the infield area.
Also, anyone who buys tickets Monday, or anyone who has already purchased tickets to the Food City 500 (March 18), Ford EcoBoost 300/K&N Pro Series East 125 doubleheader or Ford Fan Friday (March 16), will be given special access to Victory Lane in the infield. Fans will have the opportunity to see Pastrana, who will make his Bristol debut in the K&N 125, tackle the World’s Fastest Half-Mile for the first time.
The test session begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. with a break for lunch from noon-1 p.m.
