Bristol Motor Speedway; the bump and run

Bristol Motor Speedway is a NASCAR short track venue located in Bristol, Tennessee, USA. Despite its short length, Bristol is among the most popular tracks on the NASCAR schedule because of its distinct features, that include extraordinarily steep banking, an all concrete surface, two pit roads and stadium-like seating.

Bristol Motor Speedway is the 4th largest sports venues in America, and 8th largest in the world, hosting up to 165,000 people. The track is so short that speeds here are far lower than is typical on most NASCAR oval tracks, but very fast compared to other short tracks due to the high banking, making for a considerable amount of “swapping paint”.
