BRISTOL, Tenn. (July 21, 2022) – Bristol Motor Speedway officials are offering several new VIP experiences for fans to take advantage of during the Bass Pro Shops Night Race to maximize their visit to the NASCAR Cup Series Playoff weekend at the iconic short track.
Among the new items available for purchase includes:
- A ticket to the brand-new Pre-Race Infield Experience
- A pair of new Superfan Suites where team allegiances unite
- A new BMS Premium Parking Area near Hospitality Village
- The pre-race Fan Track Walk experience
Back for the first time since 2019, the Pre-Race Infield Experience will once again put fans up close to the action as the festivities get underway on Saturday evening for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Fans who purchase this upgrade experience will be able to go into the BMS infield and enjoy the pre-race concert and be there for all the action during the world-famous Bristol Motor Speedway driver introductions, where the Cup Series drivers enter The Last Great Colosseum to the sounds of their favorite music. Fans will be able to access the area at 5 p.m. and will be able to stay inside the infield until the last driver is introduced, just prior to the green flag for the famed Bass Pro Shops Night Race.
Due to the popularity and high demand of the BMS Superfan Suites, two brand new Superfan Suites have been added to the fold, one for fans of Ryan Blaney and another for fans of Richard Childress Racing. The two new Superfan Suites join five others that are already sold out for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race weekend, including Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott, defending champ Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch and Stewart-Haas Racing.
A concept Bristol Motor Speedway unveiled in 2019, the Superfan Suites allow fans of one particular driver or team to enjoy the racing action at BMS in a climate-controlled luxury skybox suite that is decorated in the colors and logos of their favorite drivers with comfortable theatre-style seating, closed-circuit televisions and food and beverages. To book one of the seats in the new Ryan Blaney Superfan Suite or the Richard Childress Racing Superfan Suite, please click here.
Because of the high demand for BMS Premium Parking areas, track officials have added a brand-new 100-space Premium Parking Area near the track’s Hospitality Village. This parking area is expected to sell out quickly so fans will need to call in as soon as possible to reserve their space in the prime location. This two-day combo (Friday & Saturday) premium parking pass at Hospitality Village is located adjacent to the BMS Hospitality Village and BMS Fan Midway, only steps away from the entrance to Gate 13. To purchase this premium parking pass, please click here.
Another popular fan upgrade that is back by popular demand is the Fan Track Walk, which takes place on Saturday afternoon prior to the running of the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Tickets for this upgrade experience are going fast, so fans are encouraged to make their purchases quickly. Fans will get to enter the stadium at 3 p.m. and walk around the historic all-concrete, high-banked half-mile where so much NASCAR history has unfolded. Just prior to the green flag, participants will have the opportunity to see, touch and feel the racing surface where all of the legends of NASCAR have battled throughout the years.

Some of the most memorable moments in NASCAR history have taken place during the Bass Pro Shops Night Race on the super-challenging .533-mile short track. NASCAR’s best drivers will go doorhandle to doorhandle – NASCAR Playoff style – and only the strongest will survive 500 laps of mayhem and chaos on the revered bullring.
In the NASCAR Cup Series Bass Pro Shops Night Race (Sept. 17, 7:30 p.m., USA Network, PRN Radio), you’ll get to see all of your favorite drivers racing hard to advance in the Playoffs, including Bristol dominator and recent Food City Dirt Race winner Kyle Busch, defending Night Race winner Kyle Larson, fan-favorite Chase Elliott, rising stars Tyler Reddick and Ross Chastain, and veteran drivers Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney.

The facility features a 0.533-mile concrete oval race track with 28-degree corner banking and 650-feet straightaways that offers racing in several NASCAR touring series, highlighted by two major Cup Series weekends each year. In 2020, the track also served as host of the prestigious NASCAR All-Star Race, and in 2021 began converting to a temporary dirt track each spring to take the Cup Series back to its racing roots. While at the track, fans are offered a unique viewing experience courtesy of Colossus TV, the world’s largest outdoor center-hung four-sided video screen with a 540,000-watt audio system. The adjacent quarter-mile dragstrip, Bristol Dragway, offers more than 50 events annually, including the marquee NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals. The Thunder Valley Amphitheatre presented by Ballad Health transforms Bristol Dragway into a premier outdoor concert venue for the world’s greatest music performers. Three football games have kicked-off inside the oval, most notably the 2016 Pilot Flying J Battle at Bristol, where border rivals the University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech met before an NCAA-record crowd of 156,990.
