Tennessee and Virgina Tech are reported to be playing at the race track in the fall of 2016, and organizers could sell 160,000 tickets. Will they? Well, if the teams are great, then yes. Plus, people like me would probably buy a ticket just to see the spectacle of a game held inside an incredible coliseum.
Take a look at the picture below. It shows Neyland Stadium, home of the Tennessee Volunteers fitting very nicely inside of Bristol Motor Speedway. And remember this, Neyland Stadium is the largest stadium in the Southeastern Conference, with capacity of around 102,000.
