Tennessee has a 100K stadium, and their fans travel, they will sell a large portion of those tickest.

Where Bristol sits in both TN and VA the city is about 80k strong so depending on what the ticket price goes for there will be a pretty good turn out just from the city itself.

also add the cities of Morristown, Greeneville, and Jefferson City. I bet Britol will have a large UT contention

This.  Lots of Tennessee fans in the tri-cities area that don't get to go to a game every weekend.  This will be a treat for them, not to mention the fans who are willing to make the drive from other areas.  I've seen a couple of non-UT/VT fans on other boards say they will make the trip just for the experience.


Straight from the Bristol Motor Speedway Rules and Regulations page:

Quote

Here at Bristol Motor Speedway, we desire the safest environment possible for fans to enjoy the event experience.
In an effort to enhance fan comfort during the races, Bristol Motor Speedway will continue its carry-in bag policy for our events. In addition to permitting one 14-inch cooler, fans now may bring one carry-in bag only. That item also may not exceed the 14-inch size limit. All carry-in items will be searched prior to entry into Speedway grandstands. It is recommended that fans make their way into the gates at least one hour prior to green flag to allow proper time for inspection of these items.
If they let college football fans bring in a cooler, forget about it.  This will be the place to be.  I don't care if I can't see shit, I'm going!

I'm sure you'll get a lot of Kentuckians as well who want to see a game at the Speedway, especially since it's right there.

I used to live in Dandridge, so I know my IMAC area and Tri-cites area very well. If they allow coolers into this event, everybody better just bring the RV's and make it a weekend

I've always wondered how many more Commonwealth would hold if we just renumbered our bleachers to the Neyland standard of 16" per ass, instead of something more comfortable like at Commonwealth (probably 20"). I bet we'd be closer to 80,000 capacity.

As to the game in Bristol. Might be cool. I can't imagine it being a good venue for a yearly match-up though.

And does the speedway pay to put the field in? Other infrastructure like locker rooms? That could get to be a multi-million dollar deal before they even sell a ticket.

i would go to this game just for the chance to see the speedway without actually have to sit through four hours of racing.

that would just make the stadium look even emptier.
