An Insiders’ Look at New Nashville Street Circuit

The track build for the inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix, the first new temporary street course circuit on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule in a decade, is taking shape for the highly anticipated Aug. 6-8 motorsports weekend in downtown Nashville. “While running over a bridge may be different or new, at the end of the day you are just purely building a racetrack,” Cotman said. “In this situation, the track goes down one side (of the bridge) and then the other, and it will certainly showcase the city of Nashville well. When you see that bridge, you will know where this race is from anywhere in the world.”. So how did Nashville’s iconic bridge wind up in the downtown layout? “You can’t get away from the uniqueness of the bridge and what it brings,” Cotman said. Due to the shape of the street and width as well as the barrier locations, there are some great viewing opportunities coming off the bridge.
