Two Nights of Racing On Tap in Music City

Racing returns to Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway this weekend, with two action-packed nights of racing building up to the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Masters of the Pros 150 and the Camping World SRX Series season finale.

There will be two big nights of racing this weekend at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

Racing will begin on Friday, July 16, with local divisions tackling the quarter-mile within the confines of the Nashville Fairgrounds infield.  Friday racing will include Bandoleros, Pure Stocks, Front Runners, Street Stocks, Legends and Limited Late Models.  The night’s pre-race festivities will also include an inductee announcement ceremony for the Hall of Fame at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

 

Racing will begin on Friday at 7 p.m. Central, with grandstands opening at 5 p.m.  Tickets are available by clicking here.

 

Friday will also be the first chance for Masters of the Pros competitors to practice at the 5/8-mile high-banked oval.  They will compete on Saturday ahead of the Camping World SRX Series.  Nearly 50 entries have been submitted for the Masters of the Pros, promising one of the largest and most competitive pavement Late Model fields in the country thus far in 2021.

 

Once the Pro Late Models have finished their battle, the attention will turn to the Camping World SRX Series.  Along with the stars that have followed the series all year long such as Tony Stewart, Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves and more, the series will be joined by defending NASCAR Cup Series champion Chase Elliott as well as Hailie Deegan for the sixth and final round of the six-race season.

 

Tickets for Saturday’s racing can be purchased here while they are still available.  Grandstands will open at Noon CT on Saturday, with Pro Late Model teams starting their engines at 4:50 p.m. and the Camping World SRX Series taking the stage at 7 p.m. CT.

 

Fans unable to attend Saturday’s racing will be able to watch the Masters of the Pros 150 on Speed51.TV by clicking here, while the Camping World SRX Series will be broadcast on CBS.
