Funny car driver Matt Hagan makes a stop in Bristol

BRISTOL, TN - The Thunder Valley Nationals will be at the Bristol Dragway in just over a week.

Everyone knows Bristol is Greeneville native Allen Johnson's home track, but funny car driver Matt Hagan from Christianburg, Virginia also considers Bristol his home away from home.
   The 2011 funny car champion has made 5 starts at Bristol and his highest finish is 2nd in 2011. Even though he has 10 career titles he doesn't take this sport for granted.

The Thunder Valley Nationals will take place father's day weekend and there are still good tickets remaining.
