The roar of the engines is replaced with the twinkling of two million lights during Bristol Motor Speedway's annual Speedway in Lights. Along the four mile route, including a drive around the World's Fastest Half-Mile, visitors delight in hundreds of displays.
A sampling of highlights and annual favorites includes:
•Symphony of Lights - The largest display to be added in Speedway in Lights's 14-year history, this light show features a large Christmas tree, dancing snowflakes, arches and fountains, consisting of more than 300,000 LED lights synchronized to music.
•The Twelve Days of Christmas - A dozen scenes stretch for 180 feet, each approximately 10 feet tall and nearly 15 feet wide, depicting holiday scenes.
•Santa's Speedway Sleigh (Wednesday and Thursday nights at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.) - A special tram offers the experience of an open-air ride through along the four mile route, complete with Christmas carols played on the tram's sound system and information provided by a tour guide.
Other attractions include an ice skating rink and 300-foot long tube slide, both open now through January 13, 2013 on scheduled days during the season. Also, visit the Christmas Village for photos with Santa, food vendors, carnival rides and crafts vendors.
