Can we just replace those pedal taverns with NASCAR all the time?
Last night on the streets of downtown Nashville, the sound of screaming bachelorettes was replaced by the roar of NASCAR engines doing burnouts on Broadway as part of NASCAR’s Champions Week festivities.
The 16 Monster Energy Cup drivers from this year’s Chase for the Cup showed off their best burnouts in front of a massive crowd looking to see their favorite driver driver burn it down.
And because this is Nashville, of course there were some country artists along for the ride. Jake Owen rode along with Kevin Harvick for his burnout, while Cole Swindell sat shotgun with Martin Truex Jr. and Cassadee Pope sat in with William Byron for his burnout. And of course Blake Shelton had to get in on the action too, riding with Clint Bowyer as he showed off his skills.
At the end of the night, this year’s Monster Energy Cup Champion Kyle Busch ended up winning another title – climbing out of his car in the middle of his burnout while passenger Brantley Gilbert provided some help on the throttle.
