Proposed Grand Prix Of Nashville Off The Table After Talks Halted
A proposed Grand Prix of Nashville outside Nissan Stadium is "no longer in the works" due to "logistical issues." Metro Sports Authority Dir Monica Fawknotson, speaking for Nashville Mayor Megan Barry's administration, today said that "Metro has halted talks with the race's promoters and has stopped pursuing the event." The race was proposed by former Pocono Raceway President Joe Mattioli and former Baker Curb Racing CEO Matt Crews. The group had said that they were "interested in partnering with either IndyCar or IMSA" (TENNESSEAN.com, 11/14).
