When NASCAR returns to Bristol Motor Speedway for their race weekend at the end of March, the half-mile speedway will look quite a bit different. The track will be converted into a dirt track. The event on March 28th will mark the first NASCAR Cup Series dirt race since the 1970 season.
On Thursday, the speedway shared video of a truck dumping dirt inside the facility as the iconic short track undergoes its transformation.
