Bristol Motor Speedway is a NASCAR short track located in Bristol, Tennessee. Constructed in 1960, it held its first NASCAR race on July 30, 1961. Despite its short length, Bristol is among the most popular tracks on the NASCAR schedule because of its distinct features, which include extraordinarily steep banking, an all-concrete surface, two pit roads, and staum-like seating. It has also been named one of the loudest NASCAR tracks.
Bristol Motor Speedway is the 4th largest sports venue in America and the 8th largest in the world, housing up to 165,000 people. The track is so short that speeds are far lower than is typical on most NASCAR oval tracks, but they are very fast compared to other short tracks due to the high banking. These features make for a considerable amount of “paint swapping” where the initial starting grid of 43 vehicles in the Cup Series extends almost halfway around the track, meaning that the slower-qualifying cars begin the race almost half a lap down.
The beautiful River Terrace Resort & Convention Center is conveniently located in downtown Gatlinburg right next door to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
