We have been coming to the NHRA Thunder Valley drag races for 3 years. This place is very fan friendly with free parking and all tickets get you into the pit areas. This past weekend was our first disappointment. It was announced that races were...More

There is no other racetrack that even closely resembles the Bristol experience. I consider that a good thing. I know countless race fans wholeheartedly agree. Within this sardine can of a stadium, 150,000 devoted fans help turn each race into an historical event unlike any...More

Does not seem to be a link for the Dragstrip on the Round Track property. We went to the NHRA drags recently. The Drag races are the same as ever. However since I had not visited since 1965 the facilities had changed a great deal....More

Lots of events all year long from nascar to speedway in lights. Good family fun. Downside is some events can be a bit pricey.

Wowzers this place is humongous. They have a banner hanging up at the entrance that says "The Last Great Coliseum" and they are right. it's like sitting in a huge bowl.

My 13-year-old son and I are coming to the August race, and we have all of Sunday still in Bristol. Anything else to do? Activities or places to visit on Sunday? I heard they do not do track tours on race weekends, darn it.

If you like country music, the Birthplace of Country Music museum is in Bristol. There's a great movie theater in Bristol at The Pinnacle shopping center. Be sure to stop by Blackbird Bakery too!
Bought my husband surprise tickets for the August race. Can anyone let me know whether uber/lyft drivers are allowed to pick up/drop off near the speedway? Any other helpful tips for getting in/out in a timely manner? Finally, what time should we arrive? Is there fun stuff to do all day long until the race at night? Thanks! Any info is helpful - I really don't know the first thing about going to a race.
