The “Grand Week of Giving” at Speedway In Lights powered by TVA resulted in an early Christmas present for one area non-profit organization.

Second Harvest Food Bank receives $1,000 worth of furniture from Grand Home Furnishings after earning more votes than any other agency from visitors to the holiday light show at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Speedway In Lights guests were invited to vote for one of five non-profit organizations during last week’s “Grand Week of Giving”. Other agencies who received votes were Advocate Center, Girls Inc. of Bristol, Kingsport Housing Authority and Rise Up!

Tickets for Speedway In Lights, open nightly 6-10 p.m. through Jan. 7, are available at the BMS gate. Ticket prices for cars are $10 Sunday through Thursday, and $12 Friday and Saturday. Each night activity van tickets are $15 and bus tickets are $65.

Wednesday and Thursday nights throughout the Speedway In Light run, Santa’s Speedway Sleigh also is in operation, taking as many as 30 passengers along the 4.5-mile route in a special tram designed to give them a unique, open-air experience.

The tram stops for 30 minutes in the BMS infield to allow guests to enjoy the crafts, carnival rides and food vendors in Christmas Village.  Santa also stops in each night and is available for pictures. Each guest receives a coupon for a free bag of marshmallows to roast at the fire pits in Christmas Village. For their comfort, blankets also are available for patrons’ use for the duration of the ride.
