This is nascar racing at it's best

This is nascar racing at it's best! Races are twice a year and during Christmas holidays the track is turned into a light display. Simply gotta see!

Have been to this location both for racing (round track) and to the on site store. Could not have asked to be treated better in any dealings I have had there. Staff and support staff seem to really want to make your visit special for you. Certainly not what I expected but am very pleased with each visit. Their motto... More

The BMS is a great place to see a race. Rubbing is race is true at the track. We enjoy every trip. The speedway also do Christmas light. This was a great time this year. Not to cold the night we went. Friendly staff. The stop in the infield was awesome. Parking was easy.

We went to see the speedway in lights display. It was really well done. The displays had been put together/maintained very well. The themes were cute. We loved the Ripleys portion of the route. It took about an hour to go through the lights. The only drawback was that some people didn't turn the headlights off as they drove through.... More

Our family never misses this event at Christmas. We love to drive around and see all the beautiful lights, and we make sure to stop in the Christmas village and get some cider or hot cocoa and get a bite to eat. If you go during the height of the holiday season, be prepared for a long wait. But, if... More

Very nice drive through display of Christmas lights at a reasonable price - $12 during the week, a few dollars more on weekend. The tour goes down the drag strip then circles around the parking lot into the race track, where there is a Christmas Village set up with numerous kiddy rides, vendors, and even marshmallows. Outside, there is a... More

This was our second time going to the Speedway in Lights and I think it is the best light display around! $15 for a car on the weekend & it goes to a charity. So many lights everywhere. My favorite was going under the sea with Ripley's! We went on a Friday night, the week before Christmas. Got there about... More

Bristol is impressive. Signs hang outside and inside that say "The last great coliseum". That is true. This is an unbelievable structure to see. Go right now and see the Christmas lights. $12 per carload during week, $15 on weekend. Lights and scenes are fun and great. You get to actually drive on the Bristol drag strip, through the skeleton... More
