BMS Offers Low-Cost Tent Camping To Guests
Bristol Motor Speedway officials today announced another low-cost option for fans interested in attending the IRWIN Tools Night Race week Aug. 24-27.
As race fans continue to find more economic ways to vacation, Speedway executives have created tent-camping options ranging from $50 to $75 for the week.
“One of the things we have heard consistently from our guests who are coming to the races and others who want to come is the desire for more lodging choices,” said Jerry Caldwell, BMS Executive Vice President and General Manager. “We have addressed that in different ways.
“We worked with area hotels in the spring. We not only opened a $99 area for RVs a couple of years ago, we expanded the number of spots this year to provide more choices. But one thing we have not had for a while was a tent-camping area. Along with the very encouraging demand for tickets we have seen in recent weeks has come requests for more lodging choices. That is why we worked so hard to carve out another option for our guests.”
Fans must have tickets to the events at BMS to reserve the spots which may be purchased by calling (423) BRISTOL (274-7865) or (423) 989-6900. Tent camping spots may be reserved by calling (423) 989-6944.
Race week at BMS kicks off Aug. 24 with a doubleheader that features the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 Camping World Truck Series race, and the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 Whelen Modified Series event. The Food City Nationwide Series race takes place Friday night, Aug. 26.
Fans may enjoy both the IRWIN Tools Night Race and the Food City 250 for as little as $99. Should they be in town for the Wednesday night doubleheader, fans can take in all four races under the lights in packages starting at $129.
Single-event tickets for Saturday’s IRWIN Tools Night Race start at $90 while ticket prices for the Food City 250 begin at $45. Wednesday night doubleheader tickets for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 and the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 are $25 in advance for adults and $30 the day of the doubleheader.
Parents also can take advantage of reduced ticket prices for children as kids 12 and under can watch the Food City 250 for only $10 while children in that age bracket will be admitted free to the Wednesday night doubleheader.
