UPS drivers racing to ship packages at BMS

SHIPMENTS AT BMS
BRISTOL, Tenn. -

It's life in the fast lane for UPS drivers at Bristol Motor Speedway, shipping packages and making deliveries at the race track.

It's hard to spot, but next to the Credential Office, there's a Shipping Depot exclusive to BMS.

Employees tell us they can do just about everything a post-office can do. We've learned things like race suits, even live lobsters are delivered here and race teams often overnight their gear.

"If something breaks and they have to have it quick, they'll ship it here and they'll watch for it. They'll come and get it as quick as it comes in," said supervisor Harry Sproles.

We've learned something this Shipping Depot doesn't have are stamps.
