  • October 13 visit, infield was still being cleaned up from football game so no organized tour. Hindsight, would have been a good idea to call first. Allowed to go in Gate 6 and view on our own. Adverti...  read more »
  • NASCAR needs to look at weather radar and as they say on the ticket, schedule is subject to change...this year, they should have changed things...With weather moving in, they should have started pre-r...  read more »
  • Carolyn and I got to go to the Kenny Chestnut then the big game. The staff did great considering the 156,990 crowd they need to be commended. 
  • 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!!
  • Bristol Motor Speedway is Garabge!!!! Not to mention the fact they had to alter the racetrack just to make the racing at Bristol better after they realized they screwed up to begin with when they changed the track and it hasn't been sold out since! Then they go and out in a multi million dollar tv screen but when it pours down the damn rain and is going to continue to rain looks like they would broadcast the weather on their beautiful new tv screen but they kept thousands of fans setting in the dark not knowing just to call the race! For that reason I'll never be back to Bristol motor speedway! BMS and its staff can kiss my ass! I really honestly hope it gets to the point no one shows up for the race. Oh wait that already happened spring of 2016! Rant over!
  • Awesome and historic track. Easy access with signs guiding your way. Staff could be more involved with helping people finding seats and showing proper exit procedures.
  • This place is absolutely amazing, whether you're here for Monster Trucks or NASCAR, you can't go wrong with BMS, Everyone wins when you come here! Twitter: @Michaelpkearney
