WALK, BIKE, RUCK COURSE PREVIEW:
Romain Grosjean, driver of the No. 51 Dale Coyne Racing Honda-powered Indy car, provides a detailed account of the 2.17-mile Nashville circuit in preparation for the Music City Grand Prix.
Be a part of an unmatched race that winds through the core of Music City and marks the first professional race to cross a body of water as it traverses the Cumberland River into downtown Nashville. This race is a spectacle unlike any other, with a course designed to challenge the racers and thrill the fans. The temporary street circuit takes racers past Nissan Stadium (home of the NFL Tennessee Titans) and over the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge into downtown Nashville.
Our mission is to honor and remember our fallen service members and their families every day, not just once a year. We use sports, entertainment, and special events to create living memorials so that every life lost in active duty or due to military service is remembered. We honor all military branches, regardless of the date or cause of loss. We remember!
