;If you’re going the Bank of America 500, you don’t have to wait for the green flag for the suspense to begin.

You may be familiar with Nik Wallenda as the guy who crossed Niagara Falls on a high wire a few years ago.

Tonight (Saturday), he and his sister Lijana will cross the race track at Charlotte Motor Speedway on a tightrope that’s 140-feet high and 500 feet long.
