When the NTT IndyCar Series heads to Nashville for the first time on 6–8 August, the Stadium Super Trucks will be there too. On Thursday, Big Machine Music City Grand Prix officials revealed in a multi-story press release that SST will take part, and a standalone announcement confirming the news was relayed on social media the next day.
The GP posted, “Super excited to announce that we are adding Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks to the Big Machine #MusicCityGP weekend! We hope you have your tickets!”
New for 2021, the Music City Grand Prix takes place on a 2.17-mile, 11-turn street circuit in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Located by Nissan Stadium, perhaps the track’s most notable feature is running on the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge which stretches across the Cumberland River.
According to the Thursday press release, practice and qualifying will take place on Friday, 6 August at 2:30 PM CDT. The first race is on Saturday at 2:45 PM, followed by the second on Sunday at 1:15 PM. Robby and Max Gordon, Matt Brabham, Sheldon Creed, Greg Biffle, and Arie Luyendyk Jr. are listed as drivers expected to participate.
Nashville will serve as the fourth weekend of the SST season after St. Petersburg and two Mid-Ohio rounds; St. Petersburg and Mid-Ohio 2 were both held in support of IndyCar. Other undercard classes for Nashville include SRO GT Americas and the Trans-Am Series.
