"First Tennessee Bank has been a valued partner over the years," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Motor Speedway. "We're looking forward to our two brands working together to continue exceeding expectations of our guests, whether they are visiting one of the friendly First Tennessee Bank branches around the region or enjoying the action at The Last Great Colosseum."

"The partnership we enjoy with Jerry and the whole BMS team has allowed us to reach a vast and passionate fan base for the past ten years, and we are thrilled to extend our sponsorship commitment for another multi-year term."
