More than 400 volunteers and chaplains make up Bristol Raceway Ministries. The organization ministers inside the racetrack, and to race fans staying in surrounding campgrounds. Chaplains also minister at Food City Race Night, held in downtown Bristol during the August race week.

On race days, chaplains minister on the grounds of the speedway in a variety of ways. They distribute material to encourage people in their spiritual lives. They coordinate closely with emergency personnel (EMS and on-site Care Center personnel from Bristol's Regional Medical Center) to offer spiritual counseling.

Bristol Raceway Ministries operates passenger vans to transport family members and friends of patients to and from the hospital when appropriate.

On race weekends Bristol Raceway Ministries also operates a golf-cart transportation service to assist those with accessible needs, or have minor injuries and are challenged in navigating the Bristol property.
