NASCAR and college football are equally huge in the South, but both worlds will converge in 2016 when the University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech are scheduled to play in the infield of the Bristol Motor Speedway. According to ESPN, the game will likely be played on September 10, 2016, and it could draw as many as 160,000 fans to the game – the current record for attendance at a college football game is 115,109, the attendance figure from this season's match-up between the University of Michigan and Notre Dame played at Michigan Stadium.
