Guests seeking relief from the nitro-fueled heat filling Thunder Valley this weekend should plan to stop in for a cold one at Bristol Dragway's Holston River Brewing Nitro Bar.

Located pit-side, the Nitro Alley bar features a selection of chilled craft beers from Bristol's first brewery.

"The partnership with Holston River Brewing Company introduces the flavor of our community to our guests and adds something unique to our traditional Nitro Alley Bar offerings," said Jerry Caldwell, General Manager for Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway.

"We're also excited they have chosen to host our fans Friday and Saturday night at the Thunder Valley After Party. It's our goal each year to create unparalleled experiences for our guests, and this new relationship with Holston River Brewing Company provides the perfect enhancement for their 2014 trip to Thunder Valley."

For those interested in attending the Thunder Valley After Party, Holston River Brewing Company is providing free transportation from Bristol Dragway to their Volunteer Parkway location. Offering a wide array of craft brews, performances by local bands and food from area vendors, the Thunder Valley After Party is the ideal cap to a full day of straight track racing.

"Bristol's only brewery is thrilled to introduce its collection of distinctive local flavors to race fans from all around the country," said Jimmie Daugherty, owner of Holston River Brewing Company.  "We've been welcomed with open arms by the team at Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway and we can't wait to meet their beer-loving fans at Holston River Brewing Company for the Thunder Valley After Party."
