News- Bristol Motor Speedway sparks it up
The lights are on.
- Speedway in Lights is annually the largest fundraiser for Speedway Children’s Charities. The attraction features more than 100 separate light displays that use 1.5 million individual lights.
The displays eat up six million watts of electricity over the month-and-a-half they’re lit. Electricity is provided free of charge by the Tennessee Valley Authority.
More than 1.75 million people have passed through the display in its eight seasons.
The light show is open seven days a week from 6-10 p.m. The cost is $7 per car Sunday-Thursday and $10 per car Friday and Saturday.
