NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — With estimated attendance surpassing the Super Bowl over 150,000 people will pack the stands of Bristol Motor Speedway to watch a game years in the making – Battle at Bristol.

Nineteen agencies from across the region have one common goal, to keep visitors safe.

Eight entrances will fully surround the speedway property followed by a new safety feature
just in time for the game.

Traffic and law enforcement will help drivers navigate the area.

Major Tim Eads with Bristol police said it’s a team effort.
