Visit Bristol Motor Speedway "The Colosseum"
Bristol Motor Speedway does NOT allow truck parking. NO Tractor Trailer and NO Bobtail Parking. Parking must be done at an off premises third party parking vendor (Contact Info Below). This is probably the least truck friendly event on the Nascar schedule. Not because Bristol dislikes trucks but because this is a huge event on back country roads with limited parking. Bristol is the ultimate race so, if your committed, we'll tell you how to get it done in a Big Rig.
Ticket pricing starts at $75

Nearby Truck Stops
This is NOT a truck friendly event. We personally parked our full truck and trailer at a third party parking vendor right next to the track but finding the location and getting parked was NOT easy. There was not much room to maneuver the truck around crowds and other vehicles. We strongly recommend you drop your trailer at a truck stop and make arrangements with a third party vendor to park bobtail. Here are some nearby truck stops where you may be able to drop your trailer.
There are 9 Truck Stops within 59 miles of the track that you may be able to drop your trailer at so that you can Bobtail to the track: Or leave it all at the truck stop and consider a Taxi or Rideshare service and now you can enjoy a beer at the track.

You can clearly see the track from this location. Many RV's and campers use this lot and it is a short walking distance to the track.
This third party parking vendor will charge $250 for the entire three day event, truck and trailer or $200 for Bobtail. They strongly recommend you book in advance. If you call within a week of the event they recommend you call the cell phone number provided above. We're not sure but the pricing may be negotiable, never hurts to try. Single day rates were not offered but when we did it a few years ago, we did get a day rate. That may have been because the lot was not completely full.
