Crowd of 150k+ expected
Redneck heaven, are they gunna have da racecars after?
Won't that be hard to play with all the RVs in the infield?
Are they only allowed to run left?
That's an idea that's been in the works for at least a decade. Fell through at least once before.
Blacksburg and Knoxville are close in proximity, up and down I-81.
Bristol has a road in which one lane is Virginia and the other lane is Tennessee.
Wow a football game where every single fan attending is probably related!
I don't give a **** about either team but that might be something to behold in person.
I see Bruton finally got this done. This place doesn't look like your typical speedway. It's a half-mile track that looks like an over-sized football stadium. And as CVille noted, it's roughly midway between the 2 campuses.
It sounds Allsome.
Only going if they run a race at the same time
Are they gonna leave the bumpers on the walls?
Now that would certainly be something worth attending.
Snark from a denizen of Canuckistan?
Where every single person in the country is probably related? And descendants of those traitorous Tories of the American Revolution to boot?
LOL @ this thread.
I dunno about everyone in Canada being related. I've seen Inuit and Asians in Canada, so I'm going to guess there's some genetic diversity. Besides, as much fun as you can have with America's Hat, it's much more fun to **** with the South.
Will they be allowed to bring alcohol in? Would be awesome except for the inability to tell what is going on during the game.
Great idea, everyone in the stands will need binoculars to actually see the game with a racetrack and pit between the stands and the field.
I heard every player will have to change their first names to either Ricky or Bobby for the game.
If I were to ever go a see a NASCAR race, this would be the venue. Especially at night. As far as a football game, look at that picture Jens posted. May as well be on the moon.
Yup, there's definitely gonna be quite a few bad seats for this one
Not to mention having the makings of whoever replaces Foodcart facing HC Shane Beamer (nepotism going on big time at VT). Not out of the question at all.
Every single person I've known that has gone to an NCAA tournament regional final in a dome has said they would never do it again. All of the charm of the game is lost - you can barely tell who the players are and all of the sounds of the sneakers squeaking and the ball bouncing and even the whistles are lost. This would strike me as being the same. Far better to watch it on TV and pay $1.50 for a good beer rather than $9 for a bud light.
Well, that certainly puts things in perspective. I see this being an interesting diversion for one year. Kind of like playing CSU in Denver was. After that, the novelty will wear off quickly.
What does that place seat?
The distant seats are a long way away but they would have to sell a lot of seats before people are in the furthest seats. That said even the closest seats are a long way away.
Well at least you live up to the description under your name!
I'm not fully convinced it'll be as easy to get 160k there as they think it'll be, but here's what it would be like
Again, may as well be on the moon.
That field is not to scale, that picture has the football field taking up the entire length of the infield.
Here's a good overhead shot that would be more to scale of how the football field would fit in there:
