If sources are to be believed, NASCAR could be headed back to Nashville for the first time since 2011. Of course back then they only hosted Xfinity and Trucks Series action, so this move to bring Cup there, reportedly, is a massive deal that could set quite the precedent as the racing league appears to be moving toward a more traditional southern schedule again.
The track is concrete and totals up at 1.33 miles, a unique length compared to other tracks on the calendar. It is owned by the same group as Dover, who have hosted two Cup races per year since 1969. So, if it does go through, you can count on them being able to handle it. It’s believed that one of the reasons for this move, apart from going back to the south, is because of how successful their season-ending awards weekend went in the city last year.
