Wednesdays from 5 June at 8.30pm Channel 075

Bowman Gray Stadium is NASCAR’s first and longest running weekly track where the competition is intense, and the engines are powerful. As the summer heats up, the 70th race season for modified racing gets underway in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and the battle for the checkered flag has begun. With each race, enemies are made, rules are broken and only those willing to risk it all will win the season championship in new series, Race Night at Bowman Gray. The stadium has been home to racing legends for decades and this season, the top competitors in modified racing – Burt Myers, Tim Brown, Jason Myers, George Brunnhoelzl III, and Jonathan Brown - are revving up their engines to compete for the Points Championship. Burt Myers is the reigning Points Champion and Tim Brown has a solid claim as the best driver in the history of the stadium. Each week, the drivers risk their lives, money and pride on the most infamous short track in America. Leading up to race night, the drivers take part in a tire lottery, where tires are distributed by track officials through a lottery system to even out the playing field, a qualifying run, race meeting and weigh-in all before the green flag is waved. The cars are lightning fast, and the drivers must rely on true skill and hard work in the garage before and after each race because one wrong turn on the track can have fatal repercussions.
