Thirty years ago, Food City started its Bristol Spring Race sponsorship. From 1992 through upcoming races in 2022, Food City’s sponsorship is the second-longest race agreement on the NASCAR Cup circuit, behind only the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Food City races have showcased it all: impressive winning streaks, first-time winners, dominating performances, new car debuts, side-by-side battles, dazzling backflips, driver skirmishes, fender-rubbing feuds, crashes, bump-n-run maneuvers, impounded racecars, milestone victories, moving tributes, family spats and the world’s best drivers getting down and dirty on the red Tennessee clay.

“We are so blessed to have such a passionate partner like Food City who has become more like family to all of us here at Bristol Motor Speedway during the past three decades,” said Jerry Caldwell, president of Bristol Motor Speedway. “It’s rare in professional sports to have a sponsorship that becomes such a perfect fit with a longstanding commitment and this one with Food City has definitely achieved that status. We look forward to many more years of creating wow moments with our friends at Food City.”

Said Steve Smith, Food City president and CEO: “We’re proud to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of our Food City title sponsorships here at Bristol Motor Speedway. We would like to thank our loyal customers, associates and vendor partners for making this partnership possible through their continued support of our company and NASCAR motorsports.”

In celebration of this milestone, Food City has compiled results, key moments, finishes and memories from each of the spring Cup Series races at BMS sponsored by Food City. Food City 30th Anniversary race release
