What’s Happening?

As fans prepare for 100-degree heat at Nashville Superspeedway this weekend, they must find an alternative method to keep cool. Unlike many NASCAR tracks, Nashville does not allow fans to bring coolers without outside food and beverages. With the heat forecasted for this weekend, fans like Joe Trailer on social media are outraged by this policy.

  • This is not a new policy at Nashville Superspeedway. This controversy first started in 2021 when Nashville joined the schedule for the first time. Long concession stand lines were the name of the game in that summer heat.
  • It’s worth noting that most major professional sports venues do not allow fans to bring in outside beverages. However, this is much less common in NASCAR. Fans often bring coolers or personal water bottles onto the track, particularly on hot summer days.
  • Fans are outraged by this. They do not like Nashville Superspeedway forcing them to fork out extra money to stay cool. Heat indexes are expected to be around or above 100 degrees for all three days.

Past Controversy

Eric Estepp went to Nashville Superspeedway for the inaugural race in 2021. In it, he highlighted the long concession stand lines at Nashville due to fans not being allowed to bring in outside food or beverages. While temperatures were not quite as high as those forecasted for this weekend, they were still in the upper 80s.

This is not a new debate. However, the extreme heat scheduled for this weekend brought the controversy back to life.

The Outrage

Joe Trailer is not the only fan upset by this rule. Many NASCAR fans were unhappy with this policy.

Chris Wolfe and Vince Brett were both concerned by this policy. Brent believes this could put people’s health at risk, and Wolfe is unsure why this policy differs from other SMI tracks.

BG says that this policy has made him rethink about attending a race in Nashville.

Indy Razorback used this as a platform to discuss some of his issues with the fan experience in Nashville.

OK_Presentation_1262 on Reddit responded to a text from Nashville by suggesting they allow fans to bring in coolers and drinks.

kingoden95 is another fan not attending the Cup Series race due to the cooler policy.
