Bristol Dragway Introduces Mobile App

Just in time for this weekend’s (June 15-17) Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, Bristol Dragway is debuting a unique mobile app for Apple and Android cellular devices. Aimed at providing race fans with an informational tool, the app helps keep track of the excitement in Thunder Valley.

Race fans visiting Bristol Dragway for this weekend’s activities can download the new app, the first of its kind in drag racing, which gives them up-to-date information about the events scheduled throughout the property.

The Bristol Dragway app provides fans access to race and event schedules, driver appearance schedules, facility maps and several other features to help them get even more from their experience in Thunder Valley.

Thunder Valley 101, Bristol Dragway’s revolutionary program for first-time fans, also is featured on the new app. Fans will be able to stream the Thunder Valley 101 audio broadcast which features commentary from Melanie Troxel, the only competitor to win in Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Mod.

Adding to the app’s interactivity, guests can create their own customized schedule which will alert them when a special event is set to take place.

A fan information section is loaded with detailed descriptions to answer many of the questions raised during a visit to Bristol. If guests cannot locate the answer they need, the “Talk to Thunder Valley” option allows questions to be sent directly to Bristol staff instantly through email, text or phone.
