CHARLOTTE, N.C.

News Channel 11’s first stop was at Kyle Busch Motorsports to speak with ARCA and Truck series driver Corey Heim.

“Bristol’s special for sure. As I mentioned, I’ve raced there a couple of times in my racing career, but it’s been a couple of years so that track changes all the time, and I’m excited to go to Bristol dirt one day, but this year I’ve got the Night Race on the asphalt,” said Heim.

News Channel 11’s final stop was at Trackhouse Racing, where driver Ross Chastain and team owner Justin Marks

“The sport’s just so ready for new venues, new challenges, new optics. It’s embracing the fact that it’s a time where we need to try some new things and sort of reenergizing the sport,” said Marks.
