About the Food City 500:
“Racin’ the way it ought’a be” is the slogan that this 1/2 miles bull ring with 36 degree banking known as Bristol Motor Speedway uses. The shortest track with the highest banking makes for exciting racing. Join us for our Spring Bristol Bash at Bristol Motor Speedway to understand why it is the most popular racing facility.
Bristol Motor Speedway is truly massive in scope, being able to seat 160,000 people. This makes Bristol Motor Speedway one of the largest sports venues in North America. The small stature of the track also means plenty of paint swapping takes place as drivers bank on tight turns and narrowly traverse the speedway. Many notable features of the track include two pit roads being present, adding an additional challenge to racers.
Those who make it through the difficult race go home with precious points in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup standings, and a victory on one of the country’s toughest tracks.
