“Simply the Best”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Best place to see a Nascar race. Nowhere better on the circuit. Tickets are now available if you want to try it out. You won't be disappointed.

“Speedway In Lights...Beautiful”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

My daughter and I took the 2 hour drive from our house to Bristol Motor Speedway to see the Speedway In Lights. We loved it!!!. I had never been there before trip. It was real easy to find. The gates open at 6:00pm-10:00pm nightly. We got there about 5:20 which was perfect. They open the gates a little earlier than 6:00pm. The traffic backed up quickly around 6:30-6:45. It was very organized. It took about 1.5 hours to go through the lighted displays. This was not due to traffic congestion. It was just the many displays to see. There is concessions available and bathrooms are available at various locations too, with room to park and get out of the way. There are numerious things to do other than just drive - through to see lights. i.e. ice skating, tube slide, carnival style rides inside the track end field area, but all of these have admission cost that are not included in the gate admission. Gate price of admission is 10.00 to 85.00 depending on the type vehicle you drive and the day you go. It's a few dollars more for Friday and Saturday admission. I paid 12.00 for a passenger car. I am thinking of going again before the events ends in January. You also get to drive around the "fastest half mile" in motor sports...lol. loved it..highly recommend!! My daughter loved it too and she's 16.

“Christmas display is amazing!”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Went for the Christmas display. It was absolutely beautiful! $10 each car, was well worth the price. Had a bonfire, roasted marshmallows and rode the carousel.

“Speedway in lights”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

We got there about 515 and it doesn't start unti 6. We got to see Dora spongebob and Spiderman. We drove up and down the hills around the race track. When you get in the track there is small Santa village. Overall I liked it.

“Speedway In Lights”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

I had been wanting to do the Speedway in Lights for several years and this year was it! It was an absolutely wonderful display of Christmas lights and a must see for all Nascar fans! The lights of the race car that stops and pits and then seems to join you in the ride was my absolute favorite!!!
