NASCAR is coming back to Nashville! In June the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series race will be held here in Nashville. Scheduled for Father’s Day weekend this will be their perfect event to take Dad to.
Even though the race isn’t until June a few Hall of Famers took to the track anyway to do I tire test. Darrell Waltrip, Dale Jarrett, and a few others showed up to relive their glory days of speeding around the track. This is the first time in five years there was actually a NASCAR Cup Series car was on the track at Nashville Superspeedway.
It was a welcoming site for a track that hasn’t hosted a race in almost a decade. It’s been 37 years since the Nashville Speedway hosted a NASCAR Cup series race. In June that will all change with the Ally 400 Father’s Day weekend.
Nashville in the early 2000s built the Superspeedway to take over for its predecessor, the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. The then state of the art facility had everything a racer would want and need in a track. The one thing it didn’t have though was fans. Hopefully in June there can be a change. Most race fans are waiting in anticipation for the big event.
The Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway could soon also be hosting its own races. The Mayor John Cooper and Bristol Motor speedway just reached an agreement. In the agreement Bristol would be taking over the management of the track. This means that maybe one day there will be no shortage of rumbling engines in Nashville.
