For one night, Bristol Motor Speedway will truly become “The Track in Black.”

The Bristol Night Race is one of the most notable events on the NASCAR schedule each season. With help from Chevrolet, the track is looking to make the Aug. 22 race even more special.

Bristol Motor Speedway is requesting that fans wear their favorite drivers’ shirts, but only a black version. It’s all part of the track’s “Bristol Blackout” night. Under the bright lights of Thunder Valley, having a capacity crowd of 160,000 back in black would make the night race an even bigger spectacle.

“The Night Race is one of the most impressive spectacles in sporting events,” Chevrolet marketing manager Edward Bailey said. “And the sight of the track and crowd decked out in black will make it that much more amazing.”

To top off the event, drivers will be introduced on the track in the 2015 Midnight Silverado Special Edition. Whether it’s a Dale Earnhardt or Austin Dillon t-shirt, make sure to bring your best black wardrobe for the #BristolBlackout.
