Bristol Motor Speedway, formally known as Bristol International Raceway and Bristol Raceway is a NASCAR short track venue located in Bristol, Tennessee. Constructed in 1960, it held its first NASCAR race on July 30, 1961. Despite its small size, Bristol is among the most popular tracks in NASCAR because of its distinct features that include extraordinarily steep banking, an all concrete surface, two pit roads and amphitheater-like seating. - Source: Wikipedia
