BRISTOL, Tenn. - Fans and collectors will soon be able to get a piece of Bristol Motor Speedway.


The track is planning to strip its all-concrete surface and replace it before the next race in August. Officials are saving pieces of the start/finish line, which will be made into souvenirs, the track announced Tuesday.


Bristol hosted the first NASCAR Cup race on all concrete in August 1992.


Pieces of the original concrete will go on sale in July in three versions ranging in price from $25 to $100. A portion of the sales will benefit the Bristol chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.


"Only the actual concrete raced on by Bristol winners since 1992 will be sold - after it's gone, no other portions of the surface will be sold," officials said.


The concrete pieces will be sold beginning July 1 through the Speedway World souvenir store at the racetrack or online at www.gospeedwayworld.com.
