“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

good atmosphere but overpriced. Of course most major event facilities are pricey but the food served during events is not worth what you pay.

“It's Bristol, Baby!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you're only able to do one NASCAR race in your lifetime make it Bristol. Short track lots of fun if you renew for next year you get to go down on the track after the race and toast with the winner. WOW! Be sure to do family race night the Thursday before the race it is so fun. You get to see all the carriers bring the race cars and parade to the track. Also lots of free food that day. It's nickname Thunder Valley and that's for a very good reason. If you plan on going to the Bristol Motor Speedway remember to bring your earplugs. This is one place that should be on your bucket list. Going back next year 5th year in a row.

“Racing at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Having two Nascar races at Bristol Motor Speedway is very profitable for the Upper East Tennessee area. There are other activities and other promotions almost every weekend. At Christmastime, BMS presents Speedway in Lights to support charities.

“WOW WHAT A PALCE TO WATCH A RACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I just tookmy first trip to Bristol Motor Speedway this past August and what a experience. We pulled are RV tralier from Caif. to Bristol and would do it again on a moments noticed. This place has me wanting to move to TN. The people around the area treat you just like family made alot of new friends.
As for the race all I can say if you have not been you need to go. The action was intense the track was out of this world not a bad seat in the place.
The downtown of Bristol is a hotbed of action on Thursday Night. They close down the main street and have bands race car displays and most of the race drivers during the day. You can stay their from the time it opens untill the time it closes and not see everything that going on. They how to do it right.
And I almost forgot to mention the parade of Nascar haulers on Thursday night going into the track it was quite a show with the haulers and the firework show.
