Blue-Emu® & Richard Petty NASCAR Weekend

WHAT A WEEKEND!  It’s Bristol Baby!!

The weekend of April 17-19 was quite a whirlwind.  NASCAR was in town for the Food City Bristol 500 and so was Richard Petty, a Hall of Fame Driver and ‘the King of NASCAR’.  Another NASCAR headliner, Jeff Gordon, is racing his last races this year as he heads into retirement.

Richard Petty & Blue-Emu at Bristol Motor SpeedwayOn Friday, the Sprint Cup drivers had their go on the track for practice and qualifying. On Saturday, The NASCAR Xfinity Series Drive to Stop Diabetes 300 began at 1:30pm at the famous Bristol Motor Speedway under beautiful blue skies.  Winning this event was Joey Logano who passed Eirk Jones, the pole sitter, on the opening lap and led the entire 300 trips around the track.

Also on Friday, NASCAR legend Richard Petty, who is a spokesperson for Blue-Emu products, made an appearance at the Gregory Pharmaceuticals building that houses UPM Pharmaceuticals and NFI Consumer Products, the makers of Blue-Emu with emu oil.  Employees were able to meet Mr. Petty and get autographs and photos.  Richard Petty as always was at the track with his race team during the weekend.

The Food City Bristol 500 Sprint Cup Race was moved this year to mid April from the usual March date in hopes of improved weather conditions in the Tennessee foothills. On Sunday the race was delayed about 90 minutes because of rain. The rain stopped the race after just 22 laps for four hours but finally the drivers were able to conclude the race with the lights on.  Pole sitter Matt Kenseth was in the top 10 throughout the day and merged the victor.  It was his first win in 51 races.

Did you see the news footage recently of the Indy Car pit crew member getting hit by his team car exiting a pit stop? Man, that guy needed Blue-Emu if anybody ever did!  Thank goodness he wasn’t seriously injured, but he surely required some analgesic cream or pain spray to help ease his leg injury and bruising.   Blue-Emu Continuous Pain Relief Spray would address the pain and Original Blue-Emu Super Strength cream would help to soothe his sore muscles.

Even if you’re not a NASCAR fan, you’ve gotta love the stories behind the drivers and their challenges.

With Blue-Emu headquartered in Bristol, we were excited to interact with the fans and support our Blue-Emu spokesman, Richard Petty!
