Barney Hall, one of the most influential and well-respected radio personalities in sports, passed away yesterday at the age of 83.



National Signing Day Has New Meaning at BMS

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Do you wish that you got to go through the recruiting process like today's 5-star players? Red carpet treatments, great food, sight-seeing tours around campus, taking in a sporting event and best of all...everyone is happy that you're there! Sounds pretty sweet, eh?


It is hard to believe it is time again to roll out Chill Hill, set up the Ice Rink and re-bulb over two-hundred displays for Speedway in Lights. 


The Initial Pilgrimage

Monday, June 24, 2013

Those who have been making their annual pilgrimage to the World's Fastest Half-Mile for many years know exactly what I'm talking about! If you're getting ready to make your first, I wish I could see the look on your face when you first see, smell or hear those "Bristol Firsts".

All I can say is wow! On Father’s Day weekend, I got the chance to spend my time at Bristol Dragway’s Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals. The weather was awesome and the racing was unbelievable. The track did an amazing job preparing for the weekend events.

The author Thomas Wolfe wrote that "You can't go home again."  But I've learned that when it comes to Bristol, I can always go "home."


Yes, I love Bristol!

Yep, it’s March... Food City 500 race week is here, and me and whole bunch of die-hards will celebrate St. Patrick's Day weekend with a full slate of racing and more at Bristol Motor Speedway.



As a young fella growing up in Bristol, well… I imagine it was just like anywhere else. You played with your friends, your toys, and whatever else you could get your hands on. And truthfully that’s about all that mattered. That is until I went to Bristol Motor Speedway.


Racing and race fans special at Bristol

By PAM HICKS - Fort Recovery, Ohio

How can you beat a weekend with 150,000 plus of your closest friends and family? That’s what Bristol is all about. Yes, we certainly come to see the racing, but Bristol is just so much more than that.


Thank goodness for Bristol!

My father was racing on the night I was born.  I’m pretty sure I had spent every Saturday night until I was 13 years old on the circle dirt tracks of Southern Ohio.

I remember growing up and watching five minutes of race highlights on ABC's Wide World of Sports and being amazed.  I was thrilled when the Daytona 500 finally was aired with flag to flag coverage.
