"Bristol Motor Speedway has long been the most coveted ticket in NASCAR and this short track doesn’t disappoint. Our seats are located in the Earnhardt Terrace and the Waltrip sections. The great thing about this track is that no matter where you sit, the view is incredible. Bristol Motor Speedway was built with amphitheater-style seating, so you won’t miss any of the action.
Our package includes passes for Hospitality Village where we have catered food and beverages in our private chalet located right outside the track. This is just a short walk from motor coach parking. It is an ideal place to take a break, and is also where Track Tours depart from if you choose to add that option to your race package. On the Track Tour, you will experience just how steep the banking is at Bristol!
Bristol Motor Speedway was constructed in the valley of a mountain, hence the nickname "Thunder Valley." This track is loud and fast and you'll want to have ear protection, comfortable shoes.
We stay in Knoxville at a full-service Hilton hotel conveniently located right outside of the Knoxville McGee Tyson airport (TYS). You will enjoy a comfortable luxury motor coach ride to the track for both days of NASCAR racing. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages along for the ride because the coaches include restrooms."
