Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway cancels JEGS/CRA Tour event

NASHVILLE, TN – City of Nashville Mayor John Cooper has directed officials of Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway to cancel the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Heroes 100 scheduled for Saturday, August 29, 2020. The event was to feature the second appearance of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in 2020 with a first-time appearance of the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Model Series and Local Racing.

The event will not be rescheduled at Nashville. Fans who purchased tickets to the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Heroes 100 on August 29th will receive a full refund.

Champion Racing Association officials are in discussions with a potential replacement venue for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour race. A decision will be made soon.

In a press conference on Tuesday, August 18th, Mayor John Cooper spoke of his disapproval of ‘in person attendance for professional sports’. Cooper stated, “We must take a cautious approach, recognizing we cannot predict our COVID-19 metrics further into the fall sports season.” The Mayor went on to say, “We cannot add any risk from potential super spreader events.”

Public safety remains a top priority for Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.
