(AP) -- It’s music to NASCAR’s ears: the stock car series is set to return to Nashville, Tennessee in 2021.
Nashville Superspeedway will hold a Cup race for the first time next season, ending NASCAR’s decade-long absence from the track. The Nashville track is owned by Dover Motorsports, Inc., which has held Cup race weekends each year since 1969. Dover will give up one of its dates and move it to Nashville for an expected late June 2021 race weekend.
Nashville Superspeedway held Xfinity and Truck events from 2001 until 2011.
