What’s Happening?

NASCAR heads to one of its most exciting new-ish markets this weekend as Nashville Superspeedway hosts its fourth Cup Series weekend. Here is everything you need to know about the weekend.

  • Nashville Superspeedway was one of the last tracks built during the late 1990s and early 2000s NASCAR boom. Built in 2001, it hosted the Xfinity Series and Truck Series from 2001 through 2011 before laying dormant for a decade. In 2021, the track re-opened, with the Cup Series hosting its first weekend in the Nashville metro area since 1984.
  • After a three-week hiatus, the Truck Series returns this Friday to start the weekend. The Xfinity Series will partner with the Cup and Truck Series this weekend, giving NASCAR their first tripleheader weekend with the top-three National Touring Series since Charlotte on Memorial Day Weekend.
  • Fans have loved Nashville’s NASCAR weekend since the track joined the schedule in 2021. The track hosts good races, and the local market supports the race.

What to Watch For

Truck Series

Three drivers led 37 or more laps in this race in 2023: Nick Sanchez (37), race-winner Carson Hocevar (40), and Corey Heim (50). Chevrolet trucks dominated the first three intermediate track races this season, with Rajah Caruth winning at Las Vegas, Kyle Busch at Texas, Ross Chastain at Darlington, and Nick Sanchez at Charlotte. However, Heim took home the win in the most recent intermediate track race at Gateway. Heim, Sanchez, and Caruth all figure to be threats this weekend.

Xfinity Series

Chevrolet has won the last three intermediate track races this season, with Sam Mayer winning in Texas, Justin Allgaier at Darlington, and Chase Elliott at Charlotte. It was a similar story in 2023 at Nashville, with Kaulig Racing Chevys combining to lead 99 of 196 laps and Chevy as a whole leading 135 laps. Allgaier is a former winner at Nashville, so watch for him and the JRM cars, along with other Chevys, this weekend.

Cup Series

The 2023 race at Nashville was between Chevy and Toyota. Chevy led 131 laps and won the race with Ross Chastain, while Toyota led 167 laps. While Chevy dominated early in the season at intermediates, winning at Las Vegas (Kyle Larson), Texas (Chase Elliott), and Kansas (Kyle Larson), Toyota and Ford have split the last two, meaning this race is wide open.

This article will be updated as the week goes on and more information about the race weekend is revealed.
