Happy 2014 March Race Week!

The following information can assist you in getting the most of your iBelong experience and benefits during your 2014 Food City 500 race weekend. 

There's a lot of info to follow, so make sure you scroll down and check out all the details.


Guest Information 

Guest Services booths and kiosks across the property and inside the Speedway gates provide a destination at which guests can ask questions face-to-face to local hosts and hostesses.  The Speedway's Guest Guide, packed with speedway and community information, provides a one-stop shop of information.  The Speedway’s Guest Relations Department, based in the O. Bruton Smith Building, encourages everyone to drop in for one-on-one meetings with full-time speedway employees, specifically charged with serving our guests. 

You’ll also want to visit our Guest Welcome Village located near the Orange Bridge between the Speedway and Bristol Dragway.

Need a quick answer or have an immediate concern?  Use your cell phone or any of the Speedway’s courtesy phones on property to call the Speedway’s Guest Information Hotline, a phone staffed 24-hours a day during race weekends. 866-925-9258. If you have an emergency, please dial 9-1-1. 

Those who prefer a slightly higher tech option may choose to use the Bristol Motor Speedway app, which, once downloaded, provides all the up-to-the-minute race weekend information direct to your cell phone. Among its many features are venue maps, social media feeds, news, driver information, guest information and ways to contact Bristol. You can download the app for free on iOS and Android devices. 

Of course, the speedway’s website, bristolmotorspeedway.com - loaded with schedules, information, photos, maps and more – always offers guests information on events, logistics, tickets, and contact information. 

Or, simply ask any of the employees!  All of the hosts and hostesses serving you are trained to help you receive the assistance you need.  Let us make your trip to Bristol Motor Speedway everything you expect, and more.  We are here to "exceed your expectations."
