BRISTOL, Tenn. (Sept. 28, 2015) - College football fans will be gathering at Bristol Motor Speedway, Friday, Oct. 2 for their shot at securing tickets to next September's Battle at Bristol. In anticipation of the public ticket on-sale date, the Speedway shared details for what they are calling "Battle Friday."
Ticket buyers coming to Bristol Motor Speedway on Oct. 2 will enter through the South Entrance to the property located off of Hwy. 11E / Volunteer Pkwy. The BMS ticket offices open at 9 a.m.
The one day walk-up sale will take place at the Bristol Motor Speedway ticket offices, located in the Bruton Smith Office Building, from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Available tickets are priced at $40, $50 and $80, plus tax. A limited amount of tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Each household has the opportunity to purchase up to four tickets. The purchaser must present a valid government issued photo ID. Payment in full is due at time of purchase (including sales tax). Actual seats will be allocated at a later date.
That same day, the Battle at Bristol ticket lottery will go live at BattleAtBristoltix.com and run through Nov. 2. Fans will complete an application online to be entered into the lottery. Lottery applicants are able to request up to four tickets to the game. A $5 refundable deposit is required for each ticket requested. Only electronic entries will be accepted.
In addition, fans can now place deposits for parking and camping. Sites will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis after all Priority Points customers have been assigned. Customers who have already placed a Priority Points ticket deposit with the BMS ticket office will have the opportunity to provide their preferences (including price, specific lots, ADA needs, and more) on the ticket order form to be mailed this fall.
The Battle at Bristol is expected to draw more than 150,000 fans when NASCAR's iconic short track transforms into college football's largest venue Sept. 10, 2016. Touted as a border battle between the University of Tennessee and rival Virginia Tech, the game is on track to crush the current NCAA single-game attendance record of 115,109, set in September 2013 at Michigan Stadium.
