Bristol,Tennessee (PRWEB) March 13, 2012
Bristol Motor Speedway is hard at work getting ready and they're hoping fans are getting ready too. March 16, 17 and 18 there will be 160,000 racing fans that will descend on Bristol and in the days leading up to the event.Area hotels are booked.Rent My Vacation Home dot com is offering Homeowners $1.00 memberships for a 30 day trial to get homes for the Race fans.
Bristol, Virginia resident Jane Akowski is picking up her tickets, "I want to get them early before the crowds. It's a week away and my brother is coming in from out of town and I promised him I'd get race tickets."Akowski is one of the thousands of fans who will fill the stands at Bristol Motor Speedway March 16, 17 and 18.As those dates approach, work at Bristol Motor Speedway is picking up.
"Preparations are underway, tickets are available and we're excited. We're celebrating Food City's 20th anniversary. It's going to be a wonderful event," says Jerry Caldwell, General Manager at Bristol Motor Speedway.
In the next few weeks Bristol Motor Speedway is working on cosmetic changes, including new signs, but they're also reaching out to fans outside of the Bristol area.They're running TV and radio ads in places like Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.
"60% of our race fans are coming from six or more hours away, so these folks really travel well," adds Caldwell. Vacation homes and lodging are a priority for many fans so we called around and learned there are almost no hotel rooms available in the Tri-Cities. If you're looking for a bargain, we've learned there are Vacation Homes in Gaitlinburg offering discounts. Bristol Motor Speedway says there's even a shuttle to get fans to and from the races. It's all part of the 'Bristol Experience'.
Something Jane Akowski says keeps her coming back year after year, "Hopefully it will be good weather. It's cool and crisp and just a good time to be outside."Wednesday afternoon, Bristol Motor Speedway announced they're teaming up with Ford for the Saturday Nationwide Race. This year it's being called the Ford EcoBoost 300.
