Motor Racing Network is making a long awaited return to Nashville when NASCAR visits there Father’s Day Weekend, June 18-20, at Nashville Superspeedway.

The network is putting together around 15 hours of content to celebrate NASCAR’s first competition in the “Music City” in ten years. MRN is covering all three races at the track, including the ins and outs of the Cup Series, from qualifying to crowning the winner.

“While it is important from time to time to get back to our roots we also need to be focused on places that support NASCAR. Nashville has always been a terrific market for the sport and this is a perfect time and place to return,” said NASCAR Cup Champion and Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace.

MRN has been covering NASCAR around the racetrack for 52 years. NASCAR owns the network and broadcasts races to over 500 radio stations around the country.

“Clearly it was the right decision as the event is sold-out,” Wallace continued. “I can’t wait to describe the energy and excitement from the MRN booth Father’s Day weekend!” Wallace is Motor Racing Network’s lead NASCAR analyst and will be in the booth with anchors Jeff Striegle and Alex Hayden.

Denny Hamlin is the current points leader (597) as we approach the halfway mark of the season. Hamlin holds a 98 point lead over William Byron despite being the only drive in the top seven not to win a race so far in 2021.

This is a historic weekend for the racing promotion. NASCAR has never run a Cup Series race in Nashville, and this is the first time the city has hosted the top NASCAR level since 1984. Race fans can get their fix of Nashville at the “Ally 400” from Nashville Superspeedway on June 20, at 2:30 p.m. ET.
