The NASCAR circuit rolls into “Thunder Valley”, aka Bristol Motor Speedway, this weekend.  For the past several races the management of the speedway has allowed the Sprint Cup drivers to pick their own introduction music.  WOMR has come up with a few really great musical picks for some of the drivers for their Sunday driver introductions.

Without further adieu here are my musical picks for some of the drivers for Bristol with links to the music and video for those who may not be familiar with the tune.  You might view each link to see how that tune fits with each driver.
