CONCORD, N.C. — A million dollars is on the line as Nascar's all-stars battle it out on the track. It is a big race that draws a big crowd.
Also, the roots of Nascar run deep in Mooresville. This weekend, drivers will be paying tribute to the community still shaken over the death of Officer Jordan Sheldon.
A special decal will be on a number of cars in Sheldon's memory.
Kyle Busch's racing team, which is based in Mooresville, also hosted two Mooresville K-9 officers during Friday night's truck race.
In the video at the top of this webpage, race fans tell reporter Briana Harper what the NASCAR experience means to them.
