Fitness enthusiasts and athletes from across the Appalachian Highlands Region are encouraged to bring their gladiator spirit to Bristol Motor Speedway and compete for the cause on Saturday, August 21 during the third annual Bristol Burnout presented by Mycroft Signs fitness competition, benefitting the Bristol Motor Speedway Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.

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

“For the third straight year we are thrilled to bring back the Bristol Burnout, an event that showcases our area athletes in a competition structured around their passion while simultaneously raising much needed funds for our area’s children in need,” said Claudia Byrd, executive director of the Bristol chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. “We're looking forward to seeing so many talented athletes performing at an elite level for the kids during the Bristol Burnout on Saturday, August 21.”

There will be three divisions in this year’s competition, including Scaled, RXish and the premier RX, and each will feature four-person Coed teams comprised of two female and two male participants. RX division teams will be competing for the following cash payouts: $3,000 to the winner; $2,000 to the runner-up; and $1,000 for third place. All divisions will include a workout utilizing the famed high-banked, half-mile oval. Interested teams can register for $300 per team. 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, spectators and participants will enjoy local health and fitness vendors, a kids’ zone, area food trucks and local breweries.
