Eric McClure is expecting exciting qualifying at BMS.

Chilhowie, Va. native and NASCAR driver Eric McClure appeared live on News 5 WCYB at 6 Thursday evening.

The driver of the #14 Hefty/Reynolds Camry will compete in Saturday's Drive To Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. It will be his 15th Nationwide Series race at what is considered his home track.

McClure says he is looking forward to the new group qualifying format making its debut on a short track.

"Bristol in itself is a different animal," McClure told News 5 WCYB.

"The new qualifying will create more excitement. Fans will definitely get their money's worth. It is going to be fun to watch."
