Bristol Driver Intro Songs Revealed

New, comments

Bristol Motor Speedway was again the scene of one of the best new NASCAR traditions on Sunday, as the 43-man Sprint Cup field was introduced to the crowd accompanied by a song of their choosing.

Much like in baseball when batters step to the plate, each driver selected a song to be played when his name was called during the pre-race introductions.

Some of the more notable selections included Brad Keselowski (Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down"), Denny Hamlin ("Rocky" theme) and Scott Speed ("Love Shack" by the B52s).
