Bristol Motor Speedway officials unveiled today a pair of new premium seating options for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race with the JR Motorsports SuperFan Suite and the brand-new Midland Suite, offering guests a chance to elevate their race experience as they visit the Last Great Colosseum.
A concept Bristol Motor Speedway introduced in 2019, the SuperFan Suites allow fans of one particular driver, team or entertainer the opportunity to enjoy the racing action at BMS in a climate-controlled luxury skybox that is decorated in the group’s colors with comfortable theatre-style seating, closed-circuit televisions and catered food and beverages.
The new JR Motorsports SuperFan Suite will be available for Friday and Saturday racing during the Bass Pro Shops Night Race weekend, Sept. 14-16. The Midland Suite is available for Saturday night’s Cup Series Round of 16 Playoff race.
For fans of JRM, this race weekend promises to be a big one as the team leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. will compete in Friday’s Food City 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the controls of the JR Motorsports-owned No. 88 Hellmann’s Chevy. It will be Earnhardt’s first on-track appearance at Bristol since the 2017 season. On Saturday, Earnhardt will then switch gears and take off the race helmet and replace it with his headset so he can call the action as a race analyst from high above the Last Great Colosseum in the NBC Sport television booth while many JR Motorsports alumni like Chase Elliott, Noah Gragson and William Byron, among others, will be racing for victory. JRM’s current stable of Chevy drivers includes team veteran Justin Allgaier in the No. 7, Sam Mayer in the No. 1, Josh Berry in the No. 8 and Brandon Jones in the No. 9.
Meanwhile, BMS is getting creative once again by offering the first-ever SuperFan Suite that features the pre-race concert band. The Midland Suite will allow guests to get up close and personal with the band and then relax as they enjoy the thrilling racing in pure comfort when the best drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series take on Bristol’s famed high banks. The Grammy-nominated band is going to perform the pre-race concert at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday just before the green flag drops for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Guests in the Midland Suite will receive a meet and greet session with the Midland band members, Mark Wystrach, Jess Carson and Cameron Duddy, including photographs and autographs. Guests also will have access to an exclusive viewing section near the stage to watch Midland perform in the pre-race concert and enjoy the NASCAR Cup Series driver introductions. All guests in the suite also will receive a Midland baseball cap and reserved parking pass (one per four tickets purchased) as part of the package.
The two new SuperFan Suites bring Bristol’s total to 10, and all of the skyboxes are located in the same suite section of the raceway, overlooking turn two. While the JR Motorsports and Midland suites will go on sale to the public today, limited seats remain in the other SuperFan skyboxes. Two of the 10 SuperFan units is completely sold out at the moment, the Ryan Blaney suite and the Richard Childress Racing/Kyle Busch suite.
The following SuperFan suites have very limited inventory as of today:
- Brad Keselowski SuperFan Suite
- Chase Elliott SuperFan Suite
- Joey Logano SuperFan Suite
- Kyle Larson SuperFan Suite
- Stewart-Haas Racing SuperFan Suite
- Martin Truex Jr SuperFan Suite
