Nashville, TN (Saturday, February 1, 2020) – The 63rd season of asphalt racing at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway welcomes back the Baby Grand and their ‘USA Central Division Pro Grand National Series’ for two events. Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (NFS), throughout the long history of competition, has seen the Baby Grand racing division on the quarter mile and five eighths mile track.
The 2020 season – to consist of two events on the quarter mile track, held on Saturday, May 16th and Saturday, October 3rd.
