2017 BMS Moments
THE SWEEP: Love him or hate him, Kyle Busch is one heck of a race car driver and he proved that once again during the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race week.
He began the week by dominating the UNOH 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and the Food City 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series before battling Erik Jones and Matt Kenseth for the win in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race. The weekend sweep, Busch's second at BMS, helped propel him towards a run for the 2017 Cup championship.
THE THREE WORD SALUTE: It's one of the most famous three-word-slogans in NASCAR, uttered by the sport's most popular driver after the 2004 Night Race. "It’s Bristol Baby!" has become the rallying cry for fans of The Last Great Colosseum and drivers alike.
During the 2017 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race week, the track dedicated an interactive monument that pays homage to Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 2004 legendary race weekend sweep. The sign, which is located year-round at the North entrance of BMS off Hwy 11E near the iconic Bristol Tower, allows guests an opportunity to take part in the BMS celebration of Junior. It is also provides the perfect guest photo opportunity for a unique keepsake. Just be sure to share the photos with the hashtag #ItsBristolBaby.
