For the first time at Bristol all three marquee NASCAR Series races are Playoff rounds. The Bass Pro Shops Night Race is a cut-off race in the Cup Series Round of 16. The Food City 300, which will feature a rare appearance by Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the No. 88 Chevy, is the Xfinity Series Playoff opener in the Round of 12. The UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics is the opener in the Round of 8 in the Craftsman Truck Series.

The ticket offerings include: Thursday night’s UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics Camping World Truck Series and Bush's Beans 200 ARCA Menards Series doubleheader ($25 per adult, kids free); Friday night’s Food City 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race ($35 per adult; kids free); and Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops Night Race ($60 per adult; $10 for kids).

All tickets purchased through Food City will be reserved seats that will be filled by BMS ticket office team members. The tickets will be sold at the customer service area of each Food City location. Tickets will be emailed to the customer within seven days of the purchase. The final day to purchase race tickets in-store will be Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Some of the most memorable moments in NASCAR history have taken place during the Bass Pro Shops Night Race on the super-challenging .533-mile high-banked concrete oval. NASCAR’s best drivers will go doorhandle to doorhandle – NASCAR Playoff style – and only the strongest will survive 500 laps of mayhem and chaos on the iconic short track.

In the NASCAR Cup Series Bass Pro Shops Night Race (Sept. 16, 7:30 p.m., USA Network, PRN Radio), you’ll get to see all of your favorite drivers racing hard to advance in the Playoffs, including Bristol dominator Kyle Busch, defending Night Race winner Chris Buescher, fan-favorites Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson, title challengers Tyler Reddick and Ross Chastain, and veteran drivers Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney.

Sparks are sure to fly in the Food City 300, as NASCAR Xfinity Series favorites Justin Allgaier, Josh Berry, Austin Hill, Parker Kligerman, Sammy Smith and Chandler Smith will be trying to get their post-season run off to a strong start (Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m., USA Network, PRN Radio). Meanwhile, Earnhardt Jr. is entered in his No. 88 Hellmann’s Chevy and will make his first Bristol race appearance since 2017.
