BRISTOL, Tenn. — Bristol Motor Speedway is opening one of its campgrounds to hurricane evacuees as Hurricane Dorian set its eye on the Southeast Coast.
The speedway announced Monday evacuees can access Medallion Campground off Highway 394 and Thunder Valley Drive beginning Tuesday, Sept. 3 at noon.
The speedway encouraged evacuees to call (866) 415-4158 for more information.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with those in the path of Hurricane Dorian," the speedway said on social media.
Dorian is expected to move along the coast from Florida and Georgia and pass the Carolinas later in the week. Mandatory evacuations have been issued in many coastal areas in its path.
