NASCAR is exciting, to say the least. The coolest part is seeing the cars go at 200 mph over the sloping curves of the track. The other fun parts about these speedways are the events that go on at them since they're so big. Christmas time is when the big parties happen at these locations and you don't want to miss them this season. This exciting Christmas activity in Tennessee lets you drive on Bristol Motor Speedway and see tons of holiday lights. 

Bristol Motor Speedway is celebrating its 23rd year of its annual Pinnacle Speedway in Lights. Not only is it an amazing way to celebrate the holidays, but it's also a major fundraiser for the  Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.

You'll drive the five-mile route that is covered in lights and different displays and you'll eventually end up actually on the Bristol Motor Speedway's half-mile oval. 

The entire speedway and route will be covered in over two million lights and have over 250 Christmas displays throughout the drive. You might even get some inspiration on how to decorate your house, but maybe without the two million lights. 

You'll start by driving down the Bristol Dragway and through different parts of the property. This is one way to really get a behind-the-scenes look at the raceway without paying thousands of dollars. In the end, you'll take a lap around a part of the Bristol Motor Speedway.

In the middle of the raceway, you can actually get out and walk around the Christmas village they have set up. There will be vendors set up and even more lights you can see and take pictures with. 

From Sundays to Thursdays, it's $15 per car and on the weekends, it's $20 per car. You can have up to eight people in your car, so you'll end up paying next to nothing! 

This time of year is a fan favorite and Tennessee has many Christmas activities you and your friends can enjoy. Check out this train ride offers a 21+ polar express ride through the Tennessee mountains and you can end your adventure by staying in this teepee Airbnb for cheap
