Fitness enthusiasts and athletes from across the Appalachian Highlands Region are encouraged to bring their gladiator spirit to Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 26 to compete in the fifth annual Bristol Burnout presented by Mycroft Signs fitness competition, benefitting the Bristol Motor Speedway Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.

Three-person fitness teams will compete for cash and bragging rights, all while helping raise money to support SCC-Bristol's mission of helping local children in need. The event will once again be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the BMS South Building, located just inside the Speedway’s Entrance 2 off Volunteer Parkway / Hwy 11E.

“We are looking forward to hosting this amazing event for the fifth year in a row,” said Claudia Byrd, executive director of the Bristol chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. “The Bristol Burnout presented by Mycroft Signs fitness competition showcases so many talented athletes in a competition structured around their passion while at the same time, serves as a tremendous fundraiser to assist children in need throughout our region.”

There will be three divisions in this year’s competition, including RXish, Scaled and the premier RX, and each will feature three-person teams in the male and female divisions. Each team will receive branded “Bristol Burnout” gear as part of the registration fee.

Spectators tickets are $5, with proceeds going to SCC-Bristol. In addition to the competition, there will be plenty of vendors on site for participants and spectators to enjoy. The Boozy Creek Smokers food truck will be available serving its tasty barbecue and the Rivers and Roads Coffee will be set up to serve their specialty coffee drinks, flavored teas and lemonade. Other vendors attending the event include the U.S. Army, Muncy Chiropractic, 7Five Clothing, Bristol Sportsplex, Barbell Voodoo, USA Ninja Challenge and Healing Hydration.
