Former XFL team executive Erik Moses will serve as the president of Nashville Superspeedway, according to Dover Motorsports.
Nashville Superspeedway is set to be on the 2021 NASCAR Cup Schedule. The track has a four-year sanctioning agreement with NASCAR.
Speaking about the appointment, Moses said in a statement:
“I am excited to join the team at Dover Motorsports to lead the reopening of the Nashville Superspeedway and bring the excitement of Cup Series racing to Middle Tennessee. I have long admired NASCAR for its commitment to the fan experience and am thrilled to have the opportunity to create the optimal race day experience that NASCAR fans deserve in a market that has such a rich history with the sport.
“Nashville is one of the hottest markets for sports, entertainment and live events in the entire country, and I look forward to working with local stakeholders and partners to leverage that momentum to establish the Superspeedway as a premier live events venue serving the greater Nashville region.”
Moses’ recent role was with XFL’s DC Defenders as the founding president starting from 2019 but the league has been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic.
