The Bristol Motor Speedway was great. We had a bit of trouble with the weather though. It rained on Sunday, and snowed on Monday. The track was great.

Great place. It is amazing. Make sure you take the van tour as well as visiting the gift shop. Even if you do not watch Nascar, it is a great place to visit. Wunderful experience!
