What’s Happening?

The Last Great Coliseum, Bristol Motor Speedway is a fan favorite track on the NASCAR schedule. There’s no bad seat in the house and that includes camping at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile. Here is everything to expect from NASCAR’s official camping notebook.

  • Bristol Motor Speedway has been hosting NASCAR Cup Series races since 1961. While the half-mile layout has stayed the same, the track has seen many configurations throughout its life, including being configured into a dirt track from 2021-2023.
  • Bristol hosts two Cup races per year. Typically, the first race is a day race held in March with the famous Bristol Night Race being held under the lights in September. The track was covered in dirt for the Spring race from 2021-2023.
  • The track is home to some of NASCAR’s most iconic moments. From Dale Sr. “rattling his cage,” to the infamous bump-and-run, Bristol Motor Speedway never disappoints.
