Get Pumped Up!

The VMA’s may have produced some very *interesting* content, but we still love music. Many times, music has the ability to change our moods. This week, we asked the Lowe’s Racing crew what their “Pump Me Up” song was for when they were getting ready for an intense workout or for the race. Check out their answers below, and then let us know what your favorite song is to get pumped up!

  • Pete Michel (engineer) – “Enter Sandman” by Metallica
