“Super excited; definitely an interesting circuit certainly we’ve seen so far on the simulator,” six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon said. “Going over the water on the bridge and very tight sections. More importantly, I’m just excited to be racing in downtown Nashville. There are a lot of big names, celebrities and stars coming to this one, but more so just for the local people, it’s going to be a lot of fun. Excited to get there and hopefully we can put on a great show and enjoy Nashville for many years.”
