Great news from camp Victory Weekend. There is a old saying that goes something like this; “so, you don’t like the weather in the southeast…just hang around a few hours, it will change”. High winds, frigid temperatures and booming thunderstorms Saturday afternoon did not dampen the serving spirit of the Victory Weekend staff or NASCAR race fans last weekend.

Classic and original standards from Cross Country The Band, Johnny Cash covers from John Schmid, bluegrass melodies from Slim Pickens and sound barrier blast from Team XTreme bombarded camp Victory Weekend Friday and Saturday. A estimated 1500 NASCAR fans over the 2 day Victory Weekend outreach experienced what several fans described as “something for everyone” in one location.

Adding to the experience was the Support Military show car (http://supportmilitary.org), Warrior Golf Camps (http://warriorgolfcampsofamerica.com) and Sharon Clark with Race Against Drugs (http://radracingteam.org) program.  Visits from NASCAR team owner Dell Hamilton and series driver Blake Koch rounded out the Victory Weekend experience while at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Oh yeah, God not only showed off in camp Victory Weekend, he showed up with 17 decisions made through inspiring invitations from Michael Coleman, Leo Johnson and Team XTreme! Michael Coleman stated; “Our team is exhausted but in the end God had his way through this outreach weekend. Our motto for this and other Victory Weekend dates is to love God and people…a simple but effective truth to live out”.

Victory Weekend is planning to come back to Bristol Motor Speedway in August for the night race weekend.
