Outdoor Track Meet - what lens to use if shooting from a grandstand?

In a couple of weeks I plan on attending the USATF Outdoor Championships at Drake University in Des Moines.

My seats are level 1, different rows for different sessions ranging from row 2-9, around the vicinity of the finish line.   I've never been to a track meet above the high school level, much less  shoot a meet.

I'll probably bring a D7100 and a D7000 with an 18-300 on one and am unsure what the other one should be.  Does it make sense to bring my Sigma 150-500?  Or would it make more sense to bring an 85 instead?

Thanks for your input/suggestions!
