There is no shortage of University of Tennessee fans in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. And skaters who want to show their Volunteer spirit can make that pay off at the Johnson Controls Ice Rink at Bristol Motor Speedway Jan. 6.
Anyone who shows their support by wearing Tennessee orange and white receives a free skate rental that evening.
UT fans can win a pair of tickets to the March 3 Vols-Arkansas men’s basketball game at Thompson-Boling Arena, or two tickets to see the Lady Vols at a home game of the winner’s choice. After registering at the rink on UT Night, fans do not have to be present to win either prize featuring the two nationally ranked programs.
Other giveaways include t-shirts, hats, magnets and posters.
The rink is open from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Friday hours are 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday the rink is open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. The rink is closed for maintenance on Mondays. The cost to skate is $5, plus an additional $2 for skate rental.
The rink is covered and is located at the Speedway’s north entrance just off Hwy. 11E (Volunteer Parkway) near the elevator tower displaying the large “Bristol” signage.
