Bristol Offers Ideal Last-Minute NASCAR Gift

Looking for that ultimate gift for the NASCAR fan on your list with just hours left until Santa gets things rolling?

Well, Bristol Motor Speedway -- thanks to the oh-so-glorious state of the economy -- actually has tickets available for its Sprint Cup events in 2009.

Sure, any other track on the NASCAR schedule having empty seats is nothing to raise an eyebrow at, but Bristol has been sold out for years upon years upon years despite its capacity of over 160,000 folks. News of this comes courtesy of the track, of course, who's trying to find a way to sell the tickets they surely aren't used to having.

The track says that the season tickets -- the ones that give fans automatic rights for their same seats in the news season -- are still available, and earlier today, I was able to find a pair of tickets for $93 plus applicable fees in the track's third turn for the Spring Food City 500 at the track on Ticketmaster.

A word to the wise, however, would say that these tickets probably won't be available until, say, race time because as the season kicks back in high gear (it's only like 50-some days away!) fans will be falling in line to secure some seats to one of NASCAR's most exciting tracks.

So what are you waiting for? We're not talking about California, we're talking about Bristol tickets!
