The Nashville Fairgrounds renovation continues to be delayed as it fails to get the necessary hearing before politicians, Bob Pockrass reports.

What’s Happening?

According to reports by Bob Pockrass, The Nashville Fairgrounds renovation has been delayed once more after delaying the reading before the Metro Council. According to Pockrass, this means that the final vote on the proposal would not be until after the next elections, which take place in August with a September run-off.

You Need to Know:

  • This means that the renovations of the Fairgrounds continues to get pushed back. It has been the subject of significant political opposition since the push to renovate began. It has also received pushback from its neighbor, Nashville S.C., who has built a soccer stadium next door.
  • The Fairgrounds is one of NASCAR’s oldest race tracks, as the Cup Series raced there from 1958 until 1984. Drivers such as Darrell Waltrip cut their teeth on this circuit.
  • Fans are growing pessimistic about the future of the Fairgrounds, but support for the project still remains. However, some do question whether or not the Fairgrounds is worth going to.
