Bristol Motor Speedway has big plans for the future and they don’t involve NASCAR. Speedway Motorsports President and CEO Marcus Smith and BMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Jerry Caldwell revealed plans to host another football game at Bristol Motor Speedway in the near future.
No teams have been announced yet, but it would likely be another college football game rather than an NFL game. Virginia Tech and Tennessee played at the Battle of Bristol on Sept. 10, 2016 in front of the largest crowd in history to watch a football game. The Volunteers won the game 45-24 in front of 156,990 fans.
