Nashville Allowed Full Capacity, Cup Race Sold Out

The upcoming Ally 400 to be run at Nashville Superspeedway has been granted full capacity — and as a result is sold out, the track announced May 21.

According to the track, its capacity is 38,000, and all of those tickets have been sold.

Marking the Cup series’ inaugural visit to the 1.33-mile track as well as NASCAR’s first visit there in a decade, Nashville was one of the five new tracks added to the schedule for 2021.

“This is an incredible milestone and shows all the progress we as a society and a sport have made against COVID-19,” Erik Moses, Nashville Superspeedway president, said in a release. “It also shows us how eager race fans in this area are to see the return of the NASCAR Cup Series.

“We appreciate the confidence that local and state health officials have shown in us to host our fans in a responsible way. The protocols and procedures we will have in place, along with the excitement surrounding the NASCAR Cup Series’ return to Nashville, will create the first of many sold out events at Nashville Superspeedway.

The track, which first opened its doors in 2001, held both Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series races for 10 years before the track closed at the end of the 2011 season.

At least five previous Nashville winners will be in the Cup field on Father’s Day weekend, including Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Austin Dillon, Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski.
