Special Needs & Accessible Parking
State and local law officials require the person to whom a state-issued permit is issued must be in the car when the permit is used. This law is enforced at Bristol Motor Speedway. Anyone using a permit illegally will not be permitted to park in the lots and risks losing the permit.
In an effort to improve parking for guests who use state-issued accessible permits, the BMS Events Department requires advance requests to help guests park closer to their seating location.
Again, please note that Tennessee law requires a person using an accessible permit to provide documentation that the permit is issued to someone in the car parking in the assigned accessible lots. A state-issued placard/tag, supporting documentation (provided by the issuing state) and a photo ID are required.
