Start time, lineup, TV, streaming schedule and more for Ally 400

The NASCAR Cup Series goes back to Middle Tennessee for the very first time in more than thirty years and the very first time in a years for any NASCAR nationwide series race.

The last race weekend at Nashville Superspeedway remained in 2011, included just the NASCAR Xfinity and Truck Series and ended what lots of thought about a stopped working experiment by Dover Motorsports, which owns the center.

So, what’s altered? A brand-new dedication by NASCAR to bring stock vehicle racing back to the Music City at the biggest concrete-only track — and among just a few in the whole series.

When races were last operate on the 1.33-mile oval, a typical problem was that chauffeurs were reluctant to pass due to the fact that the traction was not as great on the outdoors lanes. This time, NASCAR put down a basic resin that is suggested to enhance the grip throughout the track and consequently make it much easier to pass — and in turn, make it more amazing for the fans.
