Kmart in Johnson City is closing soon (maybe it already has?) https://www.google.com/maps/@36.3520684 ... !1e3?hl=en
The lot looks big enough but it's been a while since I've been there so don't know the condition it is in.

Why are we even worried about this lot since it is further away than bristol is and we are bitching about wanting to have so many events there?
I wasn't saying we needed to run there, but updating the list of potential spots in case it was ever needed.

Yeah, no need to go there as long as we have Bristol Motor Speedway. Of course, we have no guarantee that BMS will always be an option.

We took a ride thru the mall parking lot and while the front lot is probably big enough there's lots of cracks with seam sealer and weeds growing thru making it bumpy. I'd say it's a small step above East Towne Mall.
