BRISTOL, Tenn. (Wednesday, April 6, 2011) – Bristol Motor Speedway’s season-long celebration of its 50th anniversary culminates with the running of the IRWIN Tools Night Race, NASCAR’s most popular event, Aug. 27, and single-event tickets and weekend packages now are available.
Fans can enjoy 750 laps of action at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile with the IRWIN Tools Night Race and the Food City 250 Aug. 26, for as little as $99. Guests in town Wednesday, Aug. 24 for the Wednesday night doubleheader, featuring the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 Camping World Truck Series and the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 Whelen Modified event, can take in all four races under the lights in packages starting at $129.
And when it comes to being close to the on-track action, fans know there is no place like Bristol, according to BMS General Manager and Executive Vice President Jerry Caldwell.
“We have some great seats available and certainly we believe we have the absolute best place in the world to watch a race,” said Caldwell. “Here, fans are pretty much on top of the action no matter where they are sitting.
“Halfway up our backstretch grandstands fans still are only 130 feet from the track and just 175 feet away from the pit area. They are incredibly close to the action, which just enhances their experience. Being that close to the racing gives spectators an entirely different perspective, one not found at most other venues.”
Single-event tickets for Saturday’s IRWIN Tools Night Race start at $90 while ticket prices for the Food City 250 begin at $45. Wednesday night doubleheader tickets for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 and the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 are $30.
Parents also can take advantage of reduced ticket prices for children as kids 12 and under can watch the Food City 250 for only $10 while children in that age bracket will be admitted free to the Wednesday night doubleheader.
