Nashville, TN (Friday, October 22, 2021) – Earlier this week, Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway was saddened to hear of the passing of one of Middle Tennessee’s biggest racing ambassadors, Kevin Cordell. Kevin Cordell’s contributions to auto racing were influential in the continued success of Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. On Friday, October 29th, as part of the US Tank All American 400 in Memory of Jillian Brown weekend, the BH Holmes Construction Legends will hold their final event of the 2021 season, with extra money on the line through a majority of the field in memory of Cordell.
In addition to the race on the track Friday night, Cordell’s son Oliver is locked in a three way battle for the Track Championship. Boston Oliver currently leads the Championship Points Standings by one point over Oliver Cordell, and three points over Michael Crafton.
