01                Nashville, TN ( March 29, 2016) – Track Enterprises of Macon, IL, is full speed ahead with its first big event of 2016, Rockin’ & Racin’ at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.  The two day event, Friday and Saturday, April 8/9, will feature some of the best drivers across the nation in addition to a live Colt Ford concert with special guest Trent Tomlinson at the track as part of Friday’s event.  Track Enterprises also schedules and promotes events at Macon and Lincoln Speedways in Central Illinois and the Terre Haute Action Track in Western Indiana.

While it is the second year in a row that Track Enterprises has held an event in the music city, this year’s is unique due to the addition of Friday and the concert portion of the show.  The Friday night, April 8th festivities will begin at 7:00 PM with some of the top Super Late Model competitors in the nation racing with the Champion Racing Association and the Southern Super Series in a double header show.  At 8:30, all eyes and ears will turn toward the main stage as country music artists Colt Ford and Trent Tomlinson perform live.

Track Enterprises owner Bob Sargent stated, “I’ve been promoting events in the racing industry for a long time but was looking for an additional attraction for the Nashville show.  Now the fans will not only get the racing for the cost of a ticket but a great concert as well.  It’s definitely something a little different but it should be a lot of fun.”
