LEBANON, TN (WSMV) - Based on ticket demand, Nashville Superspeedway is adding additional grandstand seating, allowing for 15,000 more fans to attend, said track officials Thursday.

The race will be the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race in Nashville Superspeedway’s history and the first NASCAR Cup Series race in Middle Tennessee in 37 years.

NASCAR is returning to Nashville in a little more than four months. This June, for the first time in 37 years, NASCAR Cup Series racing will be front and center at Nashville Superspeedway in Gladeville.

Nashville Superspeedway officials continue ongoing dialogue with local and state public health authorities and government officials regarding the track’s COVID-19 protocols and plans to host fans for the June 18-20 race weekend. As race weekend approaches, more information will be shared with ticket buyers about plans to accommodate race fans safely within mandated guidelines established by local and state public health officials.

We’ve received an outpouring of support since we announced our rebirth last summer and this response underscores why NASCAR wanted to bring its premier series back to Nashville. We want to thank all of the fans who have already purchased tickets and encourage those who haven’t purchased tickets yet to do so soon before they’re gone. - Erik Moses, Nashville Superspeedway’s president

Slowly restrictions are being pulled back for many businesses and events in middle Tennessee as the state makes progress fighting COVID-19. That is encouraging for racing fans waiting for NASCAR's return to the Nashville Superspeedway in June.

Altogether, more than 40,000 fans can be seated as well as additional space for RV spectators in the center of the raceway.

Tickets are also available in the main grandstand for Nashville Superspeedway’s first two races on its Father’s Day weekend schedule, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, June 19 at 2:30 p.m. and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday, June 18 at 7 p.m.
