Nashville Superspeedway will not host any NASCAR events in 2012 and might be sold according to owner Dover Motorsports. Simply put they are not filling even the relatively small grandstands that hold 25,000 fans. NASCAR has not yet said where all of those races might be relocated to.
NASCAR Statement by Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR Senior Vice President, Racing Operations:
“NASCAR appreciates the efforts by the Nashville Superspeedway team and the support and enthusiasm the fans have shown during our 10 years racing there. While the track owners have chosen not to renew their sanctions agreement, we will continue to provide opportunities for NASCAR fans in the region to follow our sport through our television broadcasts, digital media initiatives and certainly the tracks at which we compete in that part of the country. As we continue to work on the 2012 schedules, we believe the changes that we made at the beginning of the season, particularly the “declare a series” revision, have helped create renewed excitement and interest in both the NASCAR Nationwide and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The schedules for these two series will remain strong, the racing will remain extremely competitive, and the development of future talent will continue to serve the sport well.”
