Bristol Motor Speedway

Bristol Motor Speedway at 6 a.m. on race day awaiting the Sharpie 500 and 160,000 fans. Even with that many seats, it remains one of the top ten hottest tickets in sports.

The spring race, we have a 99-percent renewal rate on tickets, ... For this race, it's 99.6 percent, which proves that 0.4 percent of the people don't renew their tickets to Bristol. We figure those are the ones that died.
--Jeff Byrd (1949-2010) President and General Manager, Speedway Motorsports, Inc.


  1. Awesome photo and great memories of my lone visit to this wonderful place. I need to get back...

  2. wow. awesome shot. I am no fan of the Nascar stuff, but that is an amazing shot. You have inspired me to do the same for the next UT nite home game.

  3. I drive past the speedway twice daily - on the way to work and back, but I have never seen it look like this. Wow.
