NASCAR Hall of Famers Darrell Waltrip and Dale Jarrett visited Nashville Superspeedway on Tuesday to share their thoughts on the track, the 2021 Cup Series season, and the sport as a whole with local media during a Goodyear Tire Test.

Also joining the group was veteran crew chief Steve Letarte, who along with Jarrett will be NBCSN analysts during their broadcast of the “Ally 400” NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, June 20, the kickoff to NBC‘s coverage of NASCAR for 2021. The “Ally 400” NASCAR Cup Series race (2:30 p.m. CT) will be the first NASCAR Cup Series race in Middle Tennessee in 37 years.

Goodyear tire test participants included 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kurt Busch (No. 1 Chevrolet, Chip Ganassi Racing), Christopher Bell (No. 20 Toyota, Joe Gibbs Racing) and Chase Briscoe (No. 14 Ford, Stewart-Haas Racing).
