Bristol is impressive. Signs hang outside and inside that say "The last great coliseum". That is true. This is an unbelievable structure to see. Go right now and see the Christmas lights. $12 per carload during week, $15 on weekend. Lights and scenes are fun and great. You get to actually drive on the Bristol drag strip, through the skeleton... More

On Black Friday11/2516, we were visiting family in Abingdon,Va. They suggested to go to the Speedway for the holiday lights. It was 8:40pm and it was crowded. Once you got in line, there was only one emergency exit to the left for 4 lanes of bumper to bumper cars to exit. So you had to see it through. Initially the... More

There was no race going on when we visited here, but we took the guided tour. It convenes at the large gift shop (which has every kind of NASCAR memorabilia and logowear you can think of), and takes you all around the grounds in a window van. The driver describes everything you go by, including the drag strip, which you... More

Have been going there for awhile. The people are great and that is the whole town. So many things to do never a boring moment. Great for all ages but we use it as our couple get away and we never want to leave. We camp at pole position and they treat you great. One year had water leak at... More

This is got to be the best race of the racing season. This race test the drivers talents. Lots of wrecks and close racing. Very fun to watch. Took my son this year and he enjoyed the cars ( 3 years old. ) If you want to see a nascar race this is one you need to see.

We went here as part of our vacation to watch our favorite pastime, NASCAR racing. Everyone in our family has a favorite driver, and my parent's driver, Kevin Harvick, won the race! It was a great race to watch.

October 13 visit, infield was still being cleaned up from football game so no organized tour. Hindsight, would have been a good idea to call first. Allowed to go in Gate 6 and view on our own. Advertised as the last great coliseum, not a bad claim. Not a die hard racing fan but this looks like a fun place... More
