    Announced this past Monday officially, that the University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2016. Will be largest crowd ever to watch CFB, expected at 160,000. Will be huge recruiting tool for both schools.

    I'm wondering how the heck the get the fans close enough to actually see the action without building a whole new set of seats around the field. The front row of seats is fully 50 yards in any direction from the gridiron.

    They've got a few years to figure it out :thumbs: I had heard once the Fall race is over they will be working non-stop to do the conversion. Will be interesting to see how it all comes together.
