Covid-19 FAQ

Head over to our tickets page to learn about the seating options available to save your place in the virtual line.

Due to the use of socially-distanced seating practices, it is unlikely you will have your ‘regular’ seats. However, we will do our best to seat you as close to your original/usual seats as possible.

Because tickets are limited, we cannot guarantee you will have a seat or ticket for the event. Priority will be given the following groups:

  1. Season Ticket Holders (Traditional 4-day package including Spring and Fall weekends)
  2. 2-Day Spring Weekend Ticket Holders
  3. Renewing 2020 Food City 500 Single-day Ticket Holders
  4. Single-day “New Ticket Requests” based on the date they are received.
  5. If tickets remain after the first four groups have been assigned, the remaining socially distanced seats will be sold to the general public.

The best way to secure your chance to witness history is by purchasing Season Tickets and/or purchasing early!

We will begin the seating process after the renewal deadline (December 4 for season ticket holders and Spring Race customers). BMS will notify fans via email when seats get placed into their account.
