Race fans visiting Bristol Motor Speedway for this weekend’s racing activities have a new informational tool to help them keep track of all the excitement at the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile.”

The Bristol Motor Speedway app provides fans access to race and event schedules, GPS-enabled property maps and several other features to help them get even more from their experience at BMS.

Guests can use GPS maps to find their current position, as well as various locations around the BMS property. Restrooms, ATMs, first aid stations and entrance gates are just a few of the amenities featured on the maps. One of the apps most popular features, fans can set GPS coordinates to make finding their seat or locating their car or campsite a breeze.

Adding to the app’s interactivity, guests can create their own customized schedule, called “My Schedule,” which will alert them when a special event is set to take place. Additionally, fans can add driver appearances and other activities to their individual schedule.

A fan information section is loaded with detailed descriptions to answer many of the questions raised during a visit to Bristol. If guests cannot locate the answer they need, the “Talk to Bristol” option allows questions to be sent directly to Bristol staff instantly through email, text or phone.

Additional features include a news feed to keep fans up-to-date with the most recent happenings, links to Bristol’s social networking sites and much more.

The app is available now and can be downloaded for free at the Apple App Store and the Google Play App Store, formerly the Android Marketplace.
