Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway offer informative and entertaining Track Tours of one of the nation's popular motorsports venues. First you'll head off to "Thunder Valley," the home of Bristol Dragway. As you cruise down the legendary quarter-mile, try to imagine a top fueler blasting past you at 300 mph. Then head up to Bruton Smith's suite and look over the magnificent high-banked half-mile wonder with seating for approximately 160,000 fans. When you think you have seen it all, you'll cruise down to the track where legends like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Darrell Waltrip raced for years. To complete your experience we'll take you for a lap around the track, which includes Bristol's high-banked turns (heck, we'll even let you get out and walk on the banking) and a ride down pit road just like yesterday's heroes and today's shining stars. It's "Thunder Valley" and "The World's Fastest Half-Mile!" There's no place like it on earth. When you tour Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway, you truly will know what we mean when we say it's "racin' the way it ought'a be!"
