Tiny home village coming to Bristol Motor Speedway in time for April race week

20-25 tiny homes coming to Bristol Motor Speedway as an alternative to race week hotels and camping.

Tiny homes are a housing trend sweeping the nation.

"They exercise in efficiency, both in terms of use of space, but also these are all pretty green in terms of the amount of utility use and energy that they consume," says founder of Try it Tiny Maggie Daniels.

And now, the luxury tiny house experience, is coming to Bristol Motor Speedway.

"There is a refrigerator and a stove top. There's also microwaves, coffee makers, and then there is two different sleeping areas in each of the units that we're bringing, there's a full bathroom, they have heat and air conditioning," Daniels says.

The tiny homes have a capacity of up to four people, and it costs $2,500 per unit, covering the five days of race week.

Daniels says Bristol's Tiny House Village is the first of it's kind.

"We really haven't seen a pop up, high-end hotel of tiny homes. It's really going to be a moving fleet and we're super excited to be doing it for the first time here in Bristol," Daniels says.

Based in Indiana, Daniels chose to expand to Bristol because of personal connections to the area and racing.

"My father was born here and so i also grew up in a racing state, so it just ended up, being in touch with the track and it just kind of seemed to work out, and seems like something that hopefully the race fans of Bristol will like and enjoy," Daniels says.

The tiny house village will give race fans a new way to experience race week.

"We love trying new things at Bristol, we love that it is unique, and this gives us a chance to really showcase what tiny homes is all about," says Vice President of Corporate Sales at Bristol Motor Speedway Chipper Harvey.

Harvey says the tiny home experience provides an alternative to the regular hotels that tend to fill up quickly during race week.

"We are challenged with hotel rooms, that's why a lot of people camp with us, so this gives you a chance to come experience Bristol in luxury, in a tiny home that has their own area with concierge and just really have an exciting time," Harvey says.

A Tiny House Showcase will take place the weekend before race week, on April 6th - 8th.
