Nashville Superspeedway Specs

For just the fourth time in history, these highly skilled, top tier NASCAR drivers are taking to the Nashville Superspeedway to compete for a victory. The 1.33-mile superspeedway features a D-shape, with 14-degree banking on the turns, 9-degree banking on the front straightaway and 6-degrees on the back straightaway.

One of the specifications that makes this track unique is that it is the only Cup Series track that is completely made of concrete. As a superspeedway, the track is also wider and allows for drivers to reach a greater speed, making for tight races that fans can’t keep their eyes off of.
