Bristol Songs, Always Fun!

When you think of Bristol, the first thing that comes to mind, besides the intense racing, is the driver intro songs.  Ever notice the drivers have a tendency to pick songs that surprise us all?  Last year, you would never have imagined that Robby Gordon would've picked Eminem's "Not Afraid," right?  The drivers usually pick songs to make people laugh, tell how they plan on racing, it’s a song they like, or it may have a personal meaning behind it.  This year is no different.
