Talk about racing at Nashville Superspeedway…

“I think it’s big for our sport to go to new places and new markets. The track is obviously unique with a concrete surface, so that’s not something we see much during the season, especially on a bigger track. It’ll be fun going back there after so long. When I ran there in the Xfinity Series, the track was relatively new still so it will be interesting to see how it has aged after sitting for so long.”
