    my grandfather owns a tractor supply place next to the trach and has a section of tickets so i think we're in the top of Section G in the Allison's grandstand or near the bottom of the section G allison terrace.

    Anyone else planning to go? or ever been to bristol, or wanna go someday?

    Dude I am SOOOOOOOOO Jealous as well!! I've never been to a NASCAR race, but have always wanted to. I'm hoping to meet my brother for Pheonix this year. The big kicker is whether or not he will be in Iraq again or not.

    hope you get to go but there is NOTHING like going to a race in bristol. 43 cars going FULL out on a 1/2 mile bull ring of a track it tis absolutly amazing. if anyone ever wants to go to bristol get ahold of me my whole family lives no more than 8 minutes from the track and i can usually get tickets!

    as a matter of fact i have an extra to this sundays event! :xmas:

    Wish I could afford a plane ticket.

    At least the Busch series guys come local. Trucks used too. There is a track about 8 miles from my house as well. www.ppir.com

    She parks RV's has camping (tents) spots and rents out a bedroom in the house, we've got hot shows the works. and we are literally 1/4 mile from the track.

    Only been once...

    I stopped at the Bristol Raceway on my way home from nashville in 1992,I had to stay at a KOA campground there because it was thunder and heavy rain the night before,and I was tired ,so I decided to crash there for the night--next day right after I got on I-81 I saw the raceway sign,and I decided to pull off and at least drive by it,after watching so many televised races from there...

    But it was a cloudy drizzly day,and only a few guys were doing burnouts and test runs with a rail dragster--so we stayed about 20 minites,and decided to get back on the road again--I later learned it was one of only a few "free days" they had that season!!--Figures!!.. :crazy:

    Bristol

    Bristol ROCKS!!!!

    I went last year,,Had box seats thru my company,,,Bristol is the toughest place to get tickets to,,some races are sold out years in advance,,

    I have the chance to go again this year but decided to spend the $ on the 4 day NHRA event coming to Houston next month.

    The only complaint I would have is the traffic in and out of the track,,,the roads can't support the HUGE amount of traffic and we sat still in a parking area for almost 2 hrs,,,but the races were well worth it,,
