While the recovery from the devastating Gatlinburg wildfires continues, Bristol Motor Speedway is attempting to put some smiles on the faces of displaced families by granting them a family fun day at the April 23, Food City 500.

"We wanted to do something nice for these folks that hopefully will help brighten their day," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Motor Speedway. "It's incredible to see the outpouring of support from the region and we wanted to do our part to show our neighbors that we care. Gatlinburg and Sevier County hold a special place in the hearts of all NASCAR fans and especially all of us here at Bristol Motor Speedway."

Bristol Motor Speedway is offering free race tickets to all families and individuals who are recipients of the Dollywood Foundation's "My People Fund". The fund provides $1,000 each month for up to six months to Sevier County families who lost their homes during the wildfires. Each family will receive four race tickets to see the Food City 500 on Sunday, April 23.
