The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix is adding a few elements to its third annual race, including a Saturday night race under the lights of downtown Nashville and an earlier start time on Sunday for the NTT IndyCar Series weekend Aug. 4-6, 2023.

The Saturday night race will showcase the new SRO GR Cup and the returning SRO GT America Series, featuring super car manufacturers Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and more.

After a late afternoon start time the first two years, race executives and IndyCar worked together with NBC to move the green flag for the NTT IndyCar Series Sunday race start time to 11:30 a.m. CT so fans will enjoy cooler temperatures and a full day of thrilling race action.

“We are thrilled to bring back one of Nashville’s premier sporting events this summer,” says Jason Rittenberry,  President & COO, Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. “We listened to our fans and have made some exciting changes that will enhance the overall festival experience. This will be our best race yet.”

Three-Day Ticket Packages, Clubs and Suites are now available for the third annual Big Machine Music City Grand Prix.  Fans can choose their optimal grandstand seat to watch as the drivers compete in the 80-lap, 2.1-mile, 11-turn course which goes around Nissan Stadium, over the Cumberland River and curves around downtown Nashville.  The event will feature live music each day and culminate with a headline concert Friday and Saturday night.

Due to popular demand, the NetJets Club RPM presented by Flatrock Motorclub tickets, will accommodate more guests in 2023.  Located on Turn three, it has dynamic views, air conditioning and all-day premium food and beverages. Club RPM has sold out quickly in the past.  A limited number of tickets are available now during the initial ticket on-sale.  In addition, the event has added Turn Nine Club, a new experience with views of the most action-packed corner and its own private grandstand, an air-conditioned tent area with all-inclusive food and beverages featuring Edley’s Bar-B-Que and Pancho and Lefty’s Cantina.
