Nashville Superspeedway to Host a Cup Series Race in 2021?

It sounds like we will be hearing the engines roar once again in Nashville, as NASCAR’s expected to return to the Nashville Superspeedway for the first time since July of 2011.

However, this time we will see the NASCAR Cup Series take action on the concrete 1 1/3 mile oval track for the first time.

The race is “very tentatively” set for Sunday, June 20th of 2021. The weekend that Chicagoland Speedway usually hosts its stand-alone event. That track has been rumored for demolition in the last couple of months.

Nashville Superspeedway was built in 2001 by Dover Motorsports, Inc. and hosted Xfinity, ARCA, Truck, and Indy car events through 2011 when the track closed.

Dover Motorsports, who also owns Dover International Speedway, continues to own the track since it shut its doors in late 2011.

“The anticipation is to operate the facility for a long time,” Dover Motorsports Chief Operating Officer Mike Tatoian told The¬†Tennessean.

NASCAR is expected to announce the new 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Schedule in the coming months.
