Music City is about to get a little dirty. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars will invade the legendary Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on May 31-June 1 for the inaugural Music City Outlaw Nationals.
New fence is already going up around the fairground’s quarter-mile oval. The next step in the transformation process will be covering the historic pavement with dirt on May 14. The culminating result sets the stage for the biggest dirt track racing event Nashville has ever seen.
“We have a dedicated crew already on-site making improvements to the fairgrounds speedway before we bring in the dirt in a couple of weeks,” said World of Outlaws COO Tom Deery. “Once the dirt goes down, we’ll run the Fairgrounds DIRTcar Clash on Saturday, May 25, then the Music City Outlaw Nationals for the World of Outlaws. It will no doubt be the biggest dirt track event in Nashville history!”
Drivers, including 10-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz and Kasey Kahne Racing’s Brad Sweet, who won the Knoxville Nationals last year, lead a field of the top Sprint Car racers in the world in a quest to capture the $25,000 top prize.
The entertainment won’t be limited to racing. Daily concerts, media displays, and multiple fan interactions are all scheduled as part of the weekend’s events. Joining the World of Outlaws on the bill are DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.
Serving as a warm-up event for the mega weekend, the Fairgrounds DIRTcar Clash features DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Stock Cars, Mini Stocks and Mod Lites on Saturday, May 25.
