BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) – A historic weekend of racing is underway at Bristol Motor Speedway.

For only the second time in track history, BMS is hosting a NASCAR race weekend with a dirt surface.

And for the first time in decades, the spring race at BMS is being held on Easter Sunday.

And it’s a night race – a departure from the regular afternoon running on the first BMS race weekend of the year.

News Channel 11 chronicled the historic moment during “Trackside at Bristol – Spring 2022”, a half-hour special report that aired Friday, April 15th at 7 p.m. on News Channel 11.
