Bluff City, Tenn.-In 1966, Clara Willen inherited 73 acres of land in Bluff City, about 1.5 miles south of the modern-day Bristol Motor Speedway.
Twenty-four years later, Raymond and Clara Willen sold 8.986 adjoining acres to Achilleas and Georgia Georgiou, owners of the Mad Greek Restaurant.  The Georgiou deed (see attachments) determined the property line as, “a point in the center line of a TVA transmission line easement.”
Achilleas Georgiou died in 1998.  Raymond Willen died two years later.  But Georgia Georgiou and Clara Willen kept their homes on Hamilton Hill Road.
This August, fans from across the country flocked to Bristol for racing under the lights.  Many of them needed a place to crash.
