  • It wasn't opened when we went to Bristol but this didn't stop us from going in and take a look at the incredible incline in the short circuit!!! Quite impressive  more »
  • First of all, the van tour only cost $5. Not only did the tour guide take us on the track and did 2 or 3 laps at high speed which was only 45 miles an hour but it seemed faster when he hit the banks (...  more »
  • This is a 45 minute tour of the race facility and drag strip suitable for race fans and non-race fans alike. The tour visited the owners suite as well. The lap (in a passenger van) is limited to 45 MP...  more »

  • Awesome experience!!! A group of 8 of us got the opportunity to ride our bicycle around the track. It was just a breathtaking experience of a lifetime! Great souvenir shop. Friendly staff. Two thumbs up!!!
  • The racing is amazing. I have gone for the last 4 years and look forward to my trip every year. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the food is barely edible. Helpful hint: Stop at a pizza place in Johnson City and bring a pizza with you. They let you bring food in, it is much cheaper, and you can actually stomach it.
  • Dave was super friendly. And our drive around the track. Really a great experience. We even parked the van in Mr. SMITHS SPOT.LOL
  • Great family fun for everyone. Super nice staff. Very accommodating. Clean facilities.
  • Huge cool looking building! Great views of Track!! I really enjoyed the truck show there!
