CONCORD, N.C. (December 21, 2021) – Track Enterprises, the promoter of the historic Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, and Racing America today announced a new partnership to broadcast racing events held at the iconic venue in the heart of Nashville for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
The landmark two-year agreement will bring the events at the legendary track to Racing America’s website and live streaming services. Additionally, Track Enterprises and Racing America will collaborate on a variety of content and marketing initiatives to help promote the track’s events throughout each season. Included in the agreement will be the streaming rights for the All American 400, one of pavement short track racing’s crown jewel events.
Bob Sargent, head of Track Enterprises, and the team at Racing America, worked diligently over the weeks since this year’s All American 400 in October to make this deal possible and to bring continued benefits to the fans of the Speedway. This past season, Racing America was on site for five days surrounding the All American 400 weekend to help bring all the great moments and stories surrounding the event to life.
"We at Track Enterprises and the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway are excited about continuing our partnership with everyone at Racing America. We think the future for grassroots racing is very bright, and that Racing America is going to play a big part in that future. We are really optimistic about the prospects of continuing to work together.”
“Bob and I have talked for many weeks about all the possibilities of how we can put together the best agreement for the track’s teams and fans,” Colin Smith, president of Racing America said. “We are so pleased to make this happen for the fans of the Speedway and, in turn, this is going to be huge for the users of Racing America as well. Track Enterprises is one of the best promoters in the country, and Bob and his team do a fantastic job of putting on a great show.”
The All American 400 has been part of the half-mile track’s history since 1984. Past winners include current NASCAR stars John Hunter Nemechek, Cup champion Chase Elliott, current Xfinity Series champion Daniel Hemric and notable Late Model stars Bubba Pollard and Donnie Wilson.
Racing has been a part of the Nashville Fairgrounds since 1904, making it one of the oldest continually operating tracks in the United States. After beginning life as a mile-long track, the current half-mile and quarter-mile venue was built in 1958. Many of the all-time greats in stock car racing cut their teeth at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
Past track champions at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway include NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Darrell Waltrip, two-time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin, four-time NASCAR Cup Series race winner Bobby Hamilton and NASCAR Xfinity Series champion Jeff Green.
