Overview

Bristol Dragway by David M. McGee


Bristol Dragway was carved into an East Tennessee mountainside in 1965. In the more than four decades since, the track known as “Thunder Valley” has carved its niche as a world-class facility in professional drag racing. Located adjacent to Bristol Motor Speedway, the dragway’s well-earned nickname stems from the unique acoustic experience fans get when the power of unlimited racing engines echoes off the nearby hillsides. Bristol Dragway retraces the track’s early history, its role in shaping the sport, and its return to prominence after an $18 million renovation in the late 1990s. The book features images of drag racing’s greatest stars and chronicles decades of the sport’s most memorable moments.

Looking at the pictures in this book and reading how Bristol Speedway came about is spell bounding. I am not a follower of racing but felt like it was in my blood after reading this book. I felt as though I had been involved from the beginning. While I have never visited Bristol Speedway I am certainly planning a visit soon!
