Free Parking

Bristol Motor Speedway operates two free public parking areas on State Route 394; one at Speedway Parking (corner of White Top Road and Hwy. 394), and one at Whitetop Creek Park. Shuttle buses serve both areas. 

Speedway Children's Charities Parking

For a small donation to Speedway Children's Charities, fans also may park in the Speedway Children's Charities lot located just north of the Speedway, past Exide Drive on Hwy. 11E (Volunteer Parkway)

Parking on BMS Property

NASCAR race weekend parking on Bristol Motor Speedway property requires either a BMS-issued parking pass or a state-issued parking permit (placard or license plate). Drivers using state-issued permits should enter the property at the Bristol Dragway Entrance (off Hwy. 394).

All other permit holders should enter at the entrance that is designated in print on the permit.

We also strongly recommend you view our Traffic Tips section, and we remind you that due to traffic congestion immediately following an event, you may be directed to utilize an alternative route.

Special Needs/Accessible Parking

State and local law officials require the person to whom a state issued permit is issued must be in the car when the permit is used. This law is enforced at Bristol Motor Speedway. Anyone using a permit illegally will not be permitted to park in the lots and risks losing the permit.

In an effort to improve parking for guests who use state-issued handicap placards, the BMS Events Department requires advance requests to help guests park closer to their seating locations.
