NASHVILLE, Tennessee (January 16, 2019) -- The Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tennessee is home to some racing’s legendary drivers and hosts one of the crown jewels of late model racing. In 2019, fans will be treated to a double dose of All American action, get dirty with some Outlaws, and enjoy the return of super late models and plus the track’s home pro late model series.

Nashville made headlines in the racing world in December after Formosa Productions, Marcus and Bruton Smith in conjunction with Bristol Motor Speedway announced a partnership with the goal of bringing a NASCAR nationally sanctioned event back to the Fairgrounds for the first time in almost two decades. The NASCAR Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series last visited the venue in 2000. While plans on the exact details of how this return is set to occur are unclear at present time, the notion of NASCAR returning to Nashville has brought a much needed dose of positive attention to the speedway following the postponement of the 34th All American 400 due to inclement weather.

Speaking of the All American 400, fans will be treated to the first of a double dose of crown-jewel super late model racing in 2019 as the aforementioned 34th Annual All American 400 will be contested on the weekend of April 13-14th. After being rained out in November, participating teams will re-qualify and be given a free set of tires, plus a waived entry fee. There are a couple of options that were made available for ticket holding fans; contact the speedway for details.

Super late models return on May 4th with the return of the Southern Super Series. The Southern Super Series will be making it’s third stop of the 2019 season as the Fairgrounds plays host to the Nashville 100.

Following the supers, the 2019 season will roll on and begin a six week program that will span from the middle of May through to November and focus on the core local divisions of the speedway, headlined by the Big Machine Pro Late Models and also including Legends, Trucks, Pure Stocks and more.

Things get dirty on the weekend of May 30th - June 1st when the World of Outlaws visit for the Music City Outlaw Nationals. The quarter-mile track will be covered with dirt for the event, which will feature the WoO Sprint Cars for the first time at Nashville in a race that will be $25,000 to win.

The 2019 season comes to a close with the running of the 35th Annual All American 400 on the weekend of November 2-3. The traditionally scheduled time frame for this historic race will once again feature the stars of the super late model world, which will include pro late models and local divisions.
