The World's Fastest Half-Mile readies itself for Tennessee-Virginia Tech
The wheels are already in motion following the recent announcement that Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway on September 10, 2016. The game is expected to set single-game football attendance record as the 52-year-old racetrack has a seating capacity of 150,000. Bristol’s proximity to both campuses made this event a rumored possibility since the 1990s. Bristol Motor Speedway released a promo video to get two already ecstatic fan bases even more primed about the event.
