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.

For more information or to obtain an accessible parking permit for our NASCAR events please contact Crystal Miller at (423) 989-6941.

Wheelchair accessible parking is assigned with the purchase of wheelchair accessible viewing tickets. For information, contact Sherri Long at (423) 989-6973.

BMS provides transportation assistance FREE OF CHARGE throughout the accessible parking areas and around the track.
