A half-dozen new properties have joined the Bristol Motor Speedway Fan Friendly Lodging Program for the August IRWIN Tools Night Race weekend.

The additions expand the Fan Friendly list to nearly 30 participating properties, offering more than 40 various pricing options and deals for BMS guests making the trip to the Last Great Colosseum. Five of the six new participants enter with costs under $100 a night and the remainder is a five-room specialty Inn offering a full homemade breakfast.

"This initiative continues to grow and we appreciate property owners and managers continuing to work with us in our efforts to find more affordable lodging for our guests," said BMS General Manager and Executive Vice President Jerry Caldwell. "Guests come from all different directions to get here and we have fan friendly lodging options in three different states to help them in planning their trip and trying to make it more economical.

"We have had inquiries from property hosts in Kentucky as well so not only are Bristol race fans becoming more aware of the program, but so are those in the lodging industry."

Started three years ago as one of the many guest initiatives implemented by Bristol Motor Speedway officials, the Fan Friendly Lodging Program has added new properties each year.

"We hope to someday involve every property in the region," Caldwell said. "It's a lofty goal, but that's ok. If fans have more options that help with their travel plans, then that also helps the hotels and inns and it is a win-win."

August racing at Bristol Motor Speedway starts August 21 with one of the most competitive double-headers in racing - the TitanRoof 150 Whelen Modified and the UNOH 200 Camping World Truck Series. Fans can grab tickets for $30. Those 15-and-under are free.

Several ticket options remain for those wanting to experience the excitement of the IRWIN Tools Night Race firsthand as well. Starting at just $75 for a single-day tickets or $99 for weekend packages, fans purchasing early can save $5 off the race week price. Cost for Food City 250 tickets are as low as $35 and half-price for youth, 15-and-under.
