Three major racing events are coming to Music City this summer. Start your engines for the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series in June, the SRX Championship Race in July + the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in August. Here’s what you need to know to be race-day ready:

🏎️ Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series

📍 Nashville Superspeedway
🗓️ Sun., June 26
🎟️ Tickets
Nashville Superspeedway will host the Ally 400 for the second consecutive year as part of NASCAR’s 2022 Cup Series. This race is the main event of a full NASCAR race weekend that includes the Rackley Roofing 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (Fri., June 24) and the NASCAR Xfinity Series race (Sat., June 25). Other events taking place include a Brothers Osborne concert + the inaugural Laps for Charity — where you drive your own vehicle on the track.

🏎️ SRX Championship Race

📍 Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway
🗓️ Sat., July 9
🎟️ Tickets
This year’s Superstar Racing Experience at the fairgrounds is part of a six-race, short-track series. The event will be produced within a two-hour television window for Paramount+ and CBS — with no pit stops. Race fans can also catch the Rackley Roofing Masters of the Pros 150 the same day.

🏎️ Big Machine Music City Grand Prix

📍 Downtown Nashville
🗓️ Fri., Aug. 5-Sun., Aug. 7
🎟️ Tickets
For three days, the streets of downtown will transform into a race track when IndyCar comes to town. In case you missed last year’s event, the 2.17-mile street circuit will take drivers by Nissan Stadium and over the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge. In addition to the big race, the festival-like experience will include additional races, a fan zone, and performances by Tim McGraw, the Grand Ole Opry, and other to-be-announced artists.
