Statement from Bristol Motor Speedway President and General Manager Jerry Caldwell:

“I’m so thankful for our owners, Bruton and Marcus Smith, for allowing our Bristol Motor Speedway team to put on an amazing Easter celebration and NASCAR race weekend that exceeded our expectations with strong ticket sales and primetime viewership on FOX,” said Jerry Caldwell, president, and general manager of Bristol Motor Speedway.
