Default Va Tech to play Tennessee at Bristol in 2016

Quote:


Over the last few years we've seen college football games played in NFL palaces and even on baseball fields. Well, it seems the next football frontier are racetracks.

And, honestly, this idea is just awesome. As you can see in the photo above, the track is almost perfect for a football game and as Bruce mentions in his tweet, you can fit a whole lot of people in the place.

It's also a perfect location for another reason. Blackburg, Virginia and Knoxville, Tennessee are separated by about three and a half hours on Interstate 81. Just about halfway between them on the state border between Virginia and Tennessee just off Interstate 81?

You guessed it. Bristol Motor Speedway. It's just an absolute perfect location for this gamend as Bruce mentions in his tweet, you can fit a whole lot of people in the place.

Interesting...

Default Re: Va Tech to play Tennessee at Bristol in 2016



That was the layout in the 60s. Sure, the garage areas could be partitioned off and designated as "locker rooms". But the BEST seats are still like 50 yards from the field. Given the seats are more of a vertical climb than traditional stadium, nosebleeds are gonna be a LONG way from the field. Yeah, it's a neat gimmick, and you're probably gonna pack the place out... but your gameday experience is probably going to suck.

I'd be pissed if I bought tickets for the "50 yard line" and still ended up that far away from the field.

I heard both teams were getting $20 million from the owners of the track. That's a pretty good payday.

As steep as the banking is @ bristol, they have the ability to bring in temporary seating on the track itself. Anyway, if you've never been there, you have no concept of how small a place it actually is.

Yeah get your binoculars. Heck it would be cool if they could do two football games at once because the infield looks like you could fit 2 maybe even 4 fields in it. At least with the field being moved to the corners the fans would be able to see it better. I feel really bad for people who would have endzone seats though.

Edit, heck just put 4 fields in there and choose 8 teams to invite from each conference that is the only way I can see this being worth while.

Default Re: Va Tech to play Tennessee at Bristol in 2016

I agree with WC...I go to parties at the owner's suite at BMS all the time and you can not really see much in the infield...especially when you are trying to watch cars, let alone people (players). And if you are seated along the turns, you will be so far from the field. THey have also built this tall narcar scoreboard (or whatever it is) right in the middle of the infield. I will say this, they do have buidlings at each end of the infield that can doulbe as locker room (hell I have work rural health clinics shucking teeth in those buildings). I think that it is a neat idea, but IMO it will suck going to a game there. I can't imagine what it will be like with a seat in the top row...you won't be able to see anything!
