  • An amazing Speedway. We did the shuttle tour and it is an amazing experience. Where you go to the suites, drive on the racetrack and even on the drag race track
  • Facility hosted the Pilot Flying J Battle at Bristol on Sept 10, 2016; pitting the Tennessee Volunteers against the Virginia Hokies in the largest attendance of a college football game (official attendance 156,990) to date. My first trip to BMS was amazing! There was plenty of camping/parking available even on game day. The crowd and grounds outside were festive and well-managed. The facility and local authorities have plenty of experience moving such a capacity crowd in, out and around. Inside; the seating, while not roomy, was more than acceptable for such a sporting event. The view of the field was distant, but I could still follow the action. The massive video/scoreboard was very impressive.
  • ¬† Share Your Experience ¬†Overall, awesome experience. Amazed it all came together. The good outweighed the bad 10 fold. The concert, music shows and country artists and THE game were great. The Vol walk was too long and a madhouse after as all those fans could not enter gates 7,8,9, let alone 13 where the walk ended. I had to enter the colosseum by tower B or C! Concessions in Junior Johnson section were out of everything before 1st qtr ended. Note- mirror the jumbotron pic next time...so team direction is same as field. No free stadium WiFi- that surprised me. Our crew arrived Thurs afternoon to avoid all the traffic issues. Campground was great. Easy to get around in. Lots of fun for 4 days. Thanks for hosting us! I'll go again next time around.
  • Great track to go to for a NASCAR race! Night racing experience was awesome and the racing on the track was really thrilling! Fan zone was better than other tracks and had a lot to do. Tent camping at Whitetop Creek Park was nice, though you have to walk a bit from the car in the parking lot to the campsite in the field. It would help in the track would be a little more informative to fans about inclement weather. In addition, the cell service is weak to nonexistent here, especially the day of the Cup race. It would help for the track to improve cell service or offer WiFi in order to allow fans to keep in loop with what's going on.
  • Bristol was on my bucket list and I was able to cross that off this weekend. Even though I expected a one night stay the rain changed that, but staying until Sunday and not getting home until 1 AM was so worth it. The hospitality of the track and their staff is top notch. From pre-race track walk to Colossus Juke Box during the rain on Sunday to the action packed racing and finally the post race party with Kevin Harvick. Amazing experience that you HAVE to see. Renewed tickets for next year already!!
