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.
Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & Spa offers cabin-style luxury in the heart of Tennessee’s spectacular Great Smoky Mountains. You’ll enjoy spacious accommodations featuring all the comforts of home, plus a wide variety of exquisite resort amenities ranging from hiking trails, two heated outdoor swimming pools and recreational options to an award-winning on-site restaurant, a world class spa and the year-round, indoor/outdoor Wild Bear Falls water park!
The resort sits adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park – the most visited national park in the U.S. Enjoy spectacular views and cabin-styled architecture at Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort where you’ll appreciate a fully-equipped kitchen, private balcony or patio and many more luxuries and amenities.
