“The best in the sport.”

Bristol, to me, is the best track for live viewing. At bigger tracks you can't see all of the action. At Bristol, you see 100% of it.

As a general rule, though, the further your seats are, the better the view. Not only of the track, but also the mountainous scenery.

The camping setup is very good, if you're interested. It's a short walk to many nearby grounds and not far at all from gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants.

While we stayed in Kingsport we were close enough to Bristol Speedway. We went to the speedway for the light show that they had. It was great and would recommend this to anyone who wants to see some fantastic displays plus, you get to drive around the track. Was a great time and the proceeds go to the local children's charities. Was one of the highlights of the trip. Highly recommend this if you are in the area in December.

It was a beautiful display of Christmas lights and all proceeds went to charity. We didn't get to roar down Thunder Alley, but we did get to drive on it and take 1/2 lap on the Oval.

Having done one race in a suite and two down on the 16th row (the last two being on turns 2 and 4, respectively) I can say that I really do like the heat and action down near the track. It's also an excellent place to visit during the Speedway in Lights event, which raises money for charity—thanks to the vision of Claudia Byrd and Speedway Children's Charities. Seems like Bristol has shifted its slogan a bit, as the banner hanging their this week proclaims "Welcome Home to Bristol".

We just came back from the Speedway in Lights. What a huge disappointment! We waited more than two hours in line to even pay. Even if we would have wanted to turnaround after waiting so long, the Bristol Speedway folks provide no way to opt out of the ridiculous wait in line - once you pull your car into line, you're out of luck and must wait it out. And I'm sorry, I know this light display has gotten some good reviews, but for a two to three hour wait this thing is incredibly sad. What a huge waste of three hours that I'm never going to get back. Never again, and no I would not recommend it.
