NASCAR, along with Dover Motorsports, announced Wednesday that Nashville’s Superspeedway would reopen and be hosting a NASCAR Cup Series race next season in 2021.
The 1.33 mile long track built by Dover Motorsports located about 45 minutes from downtown Nashville has been docked one race due to this change, having originally been scheduled to host two Cup Series events during the following season.
“Thanks to the collaboration of Dover Motorsports and our broadcast partners, we are excited to bring NASCAR racing back to Nashville, a place where the passion for our sport runs deep,” NASCAR President Steve Phelps said. “The Nashville market is a vital one for our sport, and bringing NASCAR Cup Series racing to Nashville Superspeedway will be an integral building block in helping us further deliver on our promise in creating a dynamic schedule for 2021.”
NASCAR and its fans will certainly be right at home for the event held in the heart of racing country in the mid-south, just next to the country music capital of the world, which we all know goes hand in hand with NASCAR racing. Well, i guess that and Bud Light or cheap beer?
