NASCAR fans are having to stay over an hour away from the track just to find a hotel


WVVA – As fans make their way to Bristol Motor Speedway for race weekend, hotel owners welcome the extra business.

Managers at the Quality Inn in Bluefield, West Virginia say even though it's over an hour away, they still have several race fans spend the night in Bluefield.

Sandra Mants is from Ohio and chose to spend the night at the Quality Inn. She said, "It's far enough out so we are not in the total craziness."

Anthony Bell, Assistant General Manager of the Quality Inn says, "For Mercer County, it's tremendous for our business."

Events are taking place all weekend long at Bristol Motor Speedway.
