Watch & Win

So… What happens in the 24-hour period surrounding NASCAR fans’ most popular race? It’s impossible to describe. But as they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." So how about 5,252 pictures (math tells us that would be 5,252,000 words)? That’s how many photos are used in this incredible time-lapse video from the 2010 running of the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway staged Saturday, August 21.

Courtesy of our friends at Times Digital Group, captured in these 3 minutes, 50 seconds and five frames is our 100th NASCAR race and the culmination of Kyle Busch's weekend sweep. Over the course of 22 hours, we took 5,252 photos every 15 seconds. Each second of film is made up of 24 frames (or photos)

Enjoy and see if you can spot the key frames to help you answer these questions. Answer them correctly and you could win grandstand tickets to the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Food City 500 (entry information at the bottom).

And oh yeah, if your connection is fast enough you gotta see this baby in HD.
