If you mean offering as in for free, take them and have the time of your life....this is regardless where you sit. Even paying face value for them, scoop those tickets up and hold on because you are in for one heck of a ride. I have personally never sat in the section in which you are referring to to but it is at he exit of the backstretch pit stalls and according to the seating chart it is elevated about twenty rows because this is where the infield entrance to the track is. Meaning, as close as I can tell, row 10 would mean around 30 rows up which will allow an unobstructed view of the track and victory lane. And on top of that seats 1 and 2 obviously are aisle seats, that is always a plus.
 
If any of you fans out there can confirm what I am saying or have other opinions on these seats please do, I believe these are good seats, but then again is there really a bad seat at "The Worlds Fastest Half Mile"?!

As long as you are below row 55 in Waltrip you should be fine!

if it rains higher is not bed either  lol...  you just miss the fly-by. I have spring tickets on row 3 in Waltrip. Section G I think. I would not trade them for any other seat. Awesome. You are looking right into the cars when they come around. Also can see most all of the track. Just miss the back stretch of pit row. Waltrip section is wonderful.  Have fun in Bristol

Melissa, make sure you bring lots of clothes as if that date is true, there might be snow angels.

Melissa,
Are you in the Jr Johnson grandstands? Or the Terrace? I don't think you find real "obstructions" in either. If you are in the grandstands you are just 3 rows up from the track. Some people love being that close, some don't. You will get a good view, but it will be LOUD (wear earplugs or scanner headphones), it will be gritty, you will get some of the track dust, rubber etc.) If you are in the 3rd row of the terrace you will actually be maybe 20 or 30 rows up. I think you will be OK.

 If you're in Junior Johnson, the sun will be on top of you next Spring 'till around 2ish, then you'll be shaded and watch everyone on the frontstretch get a good suntan! (Hopefully)

Hey brodie I can vouch for the fact that Petty Terrace Sec G are not good seats. Where did your friends sit at?

dewponte I sat in DW for years in BB row 28 and thought they were really good. Only reason I moved was cause I got tired of sharing tickets with my boss.

You get hit in the face with the sunset in the Waltrip grandstands, but they are great seats!

I'm in waltrip u right in turn #3 up from victory lane row 25 sun sets back and to the left of me. love them.  if the race is march 16 the chances are it will be cold and snow is a distinct possibility unlike this march.  With easter early it moves bristol back to the danger zone.

This comment scares me a little... we are in Section G, Row 61 of Waltrip. What's the issue with seats above Row 55???

my seats are waltrip sec aa, row 50 and i love them. the pilars are just a few rows behind me so those dont get in the way. i have isle seats and i think im proly the first row not under the overhang. could easily move back though if it rained. the only negative and its no biggie is boy its a haul up to row 50. i have to take 2 shots on the way up and another 2 when i get to my seats. ill try and post some pic from the march race from my seats.
