MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 19, 2017) – The 30th annual Food City Race Night, set for 4-9 p.m. ET on Friday, April 21, at Bristol Motor Speedway, will feature a distinct JR Motorsports presence and the distinctive colors of JR Motorsports partner Armour.

JRM drivers Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, William Byron and Elliott Sadler will participate in a Q&A session at 6:30 p.m. on the Pepsi Stage and will be joined by special guest Kelley Earnhardt Miller, general manager of JRM. Crew-chief-turned-broadcaster Larry McReynolds will emcee the event.

Armour, celebrating its 150th anniversary, will be on hand with its massive display featuring the Armour 150th Chevrolet Camaro show car, a tire-change simulator, Corn-Hole toss, an inflatable can, samples and giveaways for fans in attendance. The food giant will also be activating for race fans around the .533-mile speedway and in the midway.

On Saturday, NASCAR Xfinity Series points leader Elliott Sadler will wheel the No. 1 Armour Chevrolet around Bristol’s bullring along with the rest of team JRM in the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300, airing on FS1 at 1 p.m. ET

Food City’s entry into NASCAR as a sponsor at Bristol came about 30 years ago at the urging of Dale Earnhardt Sr., and this year’s Food City 500 is the 25th consecutive event. To celebrate that connection, the Earnhardt family will give the command to start engines on Sunday and serve as the Grand Marshals of the event.
