The Bloody 11W is "a brain child of Laz. During the beginning of 2011, Laz, inspired by the Mother Road, was looking at another highway with history and proposed to have a race along the State Road 11W. Approximately 111 miles from where 11E and 11W splits in Knoxville, TN all the way to the Virginia state line in Bristol."
