If you're not going to the NASCAR Race at Bristol, a Roanoke display brought some of the racing fun to our area this afternoon.
Local Nationwide Insurance agents paired up with Grand Home Furnishings to bring a show car and simulator display to the Valley View location.
"We knew grand was one of the biggest furniture companies in the area and they've got a big presence here and a great reputation," says Nationwide's Keith Ghaphery. "We asked if they'd like to sponsor with us knowing they're huge in NASCAR, they opened that with open arms."
Nationwide Insurance is now in its 6th season as the title sponsor for the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
An event that brought thousands of people to Salem this year is coming back next year. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for the Blue Ridge Music Festival.
