Girl Scouts enjoy activities, crafts and more at Bristol Motor Speedway

BRISTOL, Tenn. – More than 500 Girl Scouts and their families gathered at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend for Bristol Motor Speedway Overnight, an event produced by the Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians to celebrate 100 years of the Girl Scouts organization.

Participants enjoyed a hot dog meal, an Opening Ceremony, ride-alongs on the track, tours of the luxury suites, games, face painting, balloon animals and other activities, plus a movie and ice cream in the in-field.

The evening ended with a camp-out at Earhart Campground, adjacent to the Speedway.  Several attendees participated in the “Bling my Campsite” competition, in which they pitched tents or set up campsites with a special theme.

The event was sponsored by Bristol Motor Speedway, Mayfield Dairy Farms, First Tennessee, Food City, WTFM-FM and the Bristol Herald Courier.
