There will be an abundance of on-track excitement at Bristol Motor Speedway during August race week, but there also will be plenty of race-related action away from the track as well.

One of the featured events of race week at BMS is the Eastman Motorsports Club Racing Memorabilia Auction, an event that gives fans who are interested in collectibles the chance to claim some as their own.

The auction takes place Thursday, Aug. 20 on the third floor of the Bruton Smith Building at Bristol Motor Speedway and gets started with a preview at 5 p.m. Bidding is scheduled to get under way at 6 p.m. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.

Items on the auction block include autographed sheet metal, crew uniforms and die-cast collectibles. Some of the more popular items include sheet metal from the cars of Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon, an autographed Tony Stewart jacket and diecast, a Kevin Harvick diecast and helmet shield and various other autographed items from Earnhardt, Jr., Ryan Newman, Kurt Busch and others.
