Tonight, the Nashville Fair Board approved Bristol Motor Speedway's proposal to renovate and lease the historic Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. The process now moves on to the Metropolitan Sports Authority and Nashville Metro Council for approval.
A restored speedway is a GREAT deal for Nashville! Proposed renovations do not rely on Nashville taxpayer funds. Instead, the project is funded by specific grants and revenue bonds - which are backed by new revenue streams at the facility, not taxpayer money!
