Explore this Bristol Experience:
Fans from all 50 states and nearly two dozen other countries flock to Bristol Motor Speedway, built in 1961, for race weekends in both April and September when the track hosts NASCAR Sprint Cup, Xfinity, Camping World Trucks and Modified events.
Bristol Motor Speedway also offers track tours which offer visitors a more intimate view of both the Speedway and Bristol Dragway, which hosts the Thunder Valley Nationals, a wildly popular NHRA event each June on Fathers’ Day weekend. The tour includes a lap around the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway, a trip through Thunder Valley at the Dragway, and a visit to owner Bruton Smith’s luxury skybox.
Each holiday season, the Speedway and Dragway are transformed into a winter wonderland for Speedway In Lights. Decorated with more than 2 million lights over a 4-mile drive, the event, which benefits Speedway Children’s Charities, starts before Thanksgiving and continues through New Year’s Eve.
