Bristol. Very few names in racing provide the instant recognition of the two racing facilities that call this eastern Tennessee city home. For more than 50 years, Bristol Motor Speedway and Bristol Dragway have entertained race fans in what is known as the "Thunder Valley," creating racing legends and tall tales along the way.
Author and Bristol historian David McGee examines more than 50 of the greatest races and legendary moments from these two historic raceways. Stories about Dale Earnhardt, Don Garlits, Rusty Wallace, Rickie Smith, and others are told with more than 180 action-packed photos. You will feel as if you were sitting in the grandstands on all three nights as Kyle Busch pulled off the three-race sweep in 2010. Perhaps you were pulling for Plymouth when Ronnie Sox downed the Dodge driven by Dick Landy on a holeshot at the 1970 AHRA Spring Nationals? Whether youre an oval or drag racing fan, reliving these stories will rattle your cage!
