NASCAR is set to return to Nashville Superspeedway on the weekend of June 10-20 after a hiatus of 37 years.
A new NBC Sports national promotional campaign is set to be launched during NBC Sports’ coverage of the Indianapolis 500 on May 30. Three-time Grammy Award-winner Brad Paisley and NASCAR on NBC analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. will welcome NASCAR back to The Music City in the NBC Sports national promotional campaign.
