Bristol Motor SpeedwayBristol Motor Speedway is an anomaly—both small and massive at the same time. The actual concrete oval where the cars race is just over a half-mile long, but the surrounding stadium is enormous, with capacity for more than 165,000 NASCAR fans. To allow the cars to drive at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour without flying off the track, the curves are banked at an impressively steep 30 degrees. Check them out during daily tours, which offer a more intimate view of the speedway as well as the Bristol Dragway, next door. Tours also include a lap around the track, the chance to climb one of the high banks, and a visit to one of the stadium’s luxury skyboxes.
