Classic track to check out racing. Quite affordable for the family. Thought the seats and sight lines were very nice

The kid's old enough now to be brutally honest again. Just like his toddler days. This place is all but shut down. We tried to get a ride along NASCAR here, but the closest was Bristol. Apparently, this track is no longer safe for speed. It's too bad, cause this is a decent looking speedway and fairly easy to get... More

Great setting, great location for family fun or for a huge NASCAR fan to go. We have attended many different NASCAR tracks through the years and for Nashville to have such a gem is amazing.

A very affordable entertainment value in the heart of Nashville. A family friendly location especially if you sit in section C - no smoking or alcohol allowed in this area. We were quite surprised to see that tobacco was allowed in all other areas. The entire grandstand was shaded by the 3:00 PM gate opening so leave the sunscreen at... More

Turned up at this beautiful iconic speedway thinking my husband could do some "hot laps". Typical Australian tourist I didn't realise this was not that sort of speedway. We were greeted by the director of marketing ( Celeste) on her way to work. This wonderful women took pity on us once we explained our mistake. She gave us a private... More

The historic Fairgrounds Speedway, Nashville is a race track lover's dream. High banked excitement on the bigger track and bumper to bumper racing on the infield quarter mile track. Located at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. It's an older facility but a must-see for any true racing buff. Two-time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin is among the big names that race... More

Nashville is lucky to still have this speedway. This facility used to have an annual Nascar Winston Cup race here from 1958-1984. It has a paved half-mile oval track. In 2015 there will be 8 points races held here to determine a Nashville Speedway champion. They have up to eight racing series divisions which means a lot of racing action.... More

More intense and exciting than I ever imagined. Wish I would have done more laps and also driven with a professional driver.
