BRISTOL, Tenn. - The Bristol Dragway is gearing up for a big weekend as the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals come to town.
We stopped by the dragway Wednesday where finishing touches are being made.
We're told about 60,000 people are expected during the three day event that begins Friday.
"Friday they do two rounds of qualifying and they're later in the day, 5 and 8 p.m., so that last session is at night. You get to see these awesome cars underneath the lights, flames coming out the headers. It's just an awesome, awesome experience," says Bristol Dragway President Brandon Cross.
