Bristol Motor Speedway, formerly known as Bristol International Raceway and Bristol Raceway, is a NASCAR short track venue located in Bristol, Tennessee. Constructed in 1960, it held its first NASCAR race on July 30, 1961. 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 stadium-like seating. It has also been named one of the loudest NASCAR tracks. The track is billed as the "World's Fastest Half-Mile".

  • Love the dirt racing they have been having there. It would be a good idea for him to build a track there beside the others like Charlotte. Dirt track racing is growing exponentially fast.
  • Really awesome track! Able to see whole track from pretty much anywhere you sit. Great atmosphere. One of my favorite tracks to go to. Always hosts really fun events.
