Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville suffers heavy flood damage overnight – Track asks for help
Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville has been in the news a lot this week.
View Fairgrounds Speedway flood photos below.
Early in the week, Bristol Motor Speedway offered a bid to take over promotions and operations at the track. Additionally, Tony Formosa Jr also offered a bid.
The Metropolitan Government of Davidson County selected Formosa over Bristol Motor Speedway. That announcement came less than 24 hours ago.
Now, overnight flood waters have hit the track.
“Say a prayer for us here at the Fairgrounds. The creek did some pretty awful damage last night to the property,” stated the speedway facebook page.
“The state Fair is scheduled to start next weekend. The All American 400 is right around the corner. We have our hands full at this point, prayers that the rain stops or the creek is going to rise again!”
The track is scheduled to host it’s final race of the 2017 season. That race is scheduled for September 30-August 1st.
