The announcement of Nashville’s return to the IndyCar Series comes almost a week after Iowa Speedway announced their return to the schedule for the first time since last season. It also comes after many success stories were announced following the inaugural Grand Prix that included the most-watched IndyCar race on cable since 1998 per NBC.
While many details remain in the air, Monday’s announcement gives fans ample time to plan to attend the 2022 event. The 2022 Music City Grand Prix race weekend is now 347 days away. More details will become available as we inch closer to the event.
