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.

The first race is on Saturday at 2:45 PM, followed by the second on Sunday at 1:15 PM. Robby and Max GordonMatt BrabhamSheldon CreedGreg 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.
