Coming up next month in beautiful Bristol, Tennessee is the Food City 500 at the Bristol Motor Speedway.  The March 16th race is a premier event in the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit.  The deafening roar of the engines, the excitement of the race, and the thousands upon thousands of race fans all make this one of the most exciting NASCAR events around.  Featuring the best stock car drivers in the world, NASCAR events are a spectacle unlike any other event.  Bristol Motor Speedway has long been the home to NASCAR fame since the early 1960’s.  Previous notable races held here have been the Southeastern 500 and the Valleydale 500.  The Food City 500 features 500 laps totaling 266.5 miles of pure adrenaline and speed.  Fans come for not just the excitement of the race, but also for a day of tailgating with friends and family.  Kicking off this year’s race is a concert from Colt Ford on the Food City 500 stage.

Snoop Dogg Brings the Party to Bogart's

Snoop Dogg/Lion played for a small sold out crowd this Friday night at Bogart's. Snoop has been playing small venues at select spots across the country during the winter with a plan to return to the big arenas/festivals this summer.  I think all bands should do this from time to time, as intimate atmosphere adds to the experience of a great performer. Snoop played all the classics and a few new  tracks for the crowd. On this particular night, Snoop showed up fashionable late but still played a strong set of what the crowd wanted to hear. Check out more of my crowd coverage at NBC.com under their music section. (Not a whole lot of wide angle shots as I have two lenses getting worked on at this moment.)
