Nashville Fairgrounds project meets resistance at Fair Board Meeting

The Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway could be on track to get a new makeover, but the proposal is being met with lots of concerns from community members.

One by one people took to the podium to share their thoughts on a plan that would have Bristol Motor Speedway managing, operating and maintaining the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

Nearly two dozen people spoke against the proposal, while a dozen others shared their reasons for support including life-long NASCAR fan Norm Partin.

“I know this is a good thing for the city. I’m a taxpayer first and if it wasn’t good with taxpayers I would be against it,” Partin said.

He said the plan would help revitalize the historic track without costing taxpayers anything.
