But this isn’t the first time Virginia Tech and Tennessee have discussed a game in Bristol, Tenn. Back in 2005, Bruton Smith, the chairman and chief executive of Speedway Motorsports Inc., offered each school $20 million to play a nonconference game at the racetrack.
Re: Tennessee and Virginia Tech to play FB game at Bristol Motor Speedway
I would imagine they are going to have to take down all the buildings in the interior of the track. I wonder if this all part of some grand plan to renovate the infield.
If you had 150,000 paying $75 a ticket that would only be a little over $11 million in revenue. I wonder how they could have justified that $20 million each in 2005
