Nashville, TN — December 5, 2019
Last night NASCAR threw a street party in downtown Nashville, and what a party it was. “Honky Tonk Row” was lined with race cars of the NASCAR Playoff drivers as crowds flocked in to see the “Burnouts on Broadway.”
Fans posed next to their favorites and snapped pictures. Gear heads marveled at the array of roll cage bars and safety equipment inside the cockpits.
The Sun Goes Down, the Neon Lights Up
As daylight transitioned into night, the cars on display took on a surreal appearance under the neon lights of Lower Broadway.
Fans began to anticipate the engine firing up, the drivers sliding behind the wheel and the scream of tires laying down a strip of rubber on Nashville’s most famous boulevard.
NASCAR’s Industry Awards
Sponsors and fans gathered at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Bar, a block away from the Burnout Zone, for NASCAR’s Industry Awards.
The annual gathering honors individuals that achieve the highest levels of success and respect in the sport. Including a gold replica of the Championship Driver’s car presented this year to Kyle Busch.
The crowd’s patience was rewarded with what everyone came to see, the Burnouts on Broadway. Drivers did their best to please the cheering fans and fill Nashville’s riverside with billowing smoke from the Goodyear Eagles they spun around the pavement just outside of the Hard Rock Nashville.
Joey Logano, who is gaining a reputation as the burnout king, thrills the crowd with a loud and cloudy performance.
