BEST ROUTE Indianapolis,IN to Bristol, TN (HELP)
I'm looking for some advice on the best route for a "Guys Trip" to Bristol, TN for the Nascar Night Race in August. Below are some details of the starting point and the equipment. I'm looking for advice in particular to routes that might be less strain on my tow vehicle and the safest (no narrow or dangerous roads). Google Maps shows I-75 south to 25E. Not sure about this route. Also I travel to Knoxville in my car often for work and the hills get pretty aggressive near Knoxville. Thanks in advance for your comments.
Starting point - East side of Indianapolis, so we are planning to take the I-74 East - I-275 South - I75 South route but open to suggestions after that.
Equipment - 2014 XLR 29HFS Toy Hauler (approx. 31') 7,000 lbs dry. Last time weighed with gear 8,100. Plan to travel light though.
Tow Vehicle - 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew 5.7L Hemi
Total length = 52'
Please post your thoughts.
