The Nashville Fairgrounds has a brand new proposal that includes tearing down the existing race track.

What’s Happening?

The Nashville Fairgrounds continues to be stuck in a battle between the race track and the local government. Now, the Fairgrounds Prevention Project has proposed a brand-new plan that includes teardown down the existing track in favor of a drag strip for electric cars.

You Need to Know:

  • According to the proposal, the new complex would be connected to Brown’s Creek with housing and a rehearsal space for musicians as well. A recent poll of Nashville residents on this new plan had 67% of fans in favor of the new plan with 21% against it.
  • This is a far cry from the recent plan that NASCAR proposed which included renovations to the track. This plan also comes amidst a new Mayor in Nashville, Freddie O’Connell. Plans to renovate the Fairgrounds have never gotten completely off the ground over the last few years.
  • Race fans on social media do not like this new plan because of the obvious demolition of the track this would require. The Nashville Fairgrounds is a popular place for many fans to return to, but, proposals like this are not conducive to that happening.
