Nashville Superspeedway has hired three veteran sport executives to the speedway’s staff ahead of June’s NASCAR weekend.
Matt Greci joins the staff as Vice President of Events and Operations, Kacy Harmon has been named Senior Director of Ticket Sales and Operations and Jason Lazar joins as the Director of Operations.
“This trio brings a wealth of event experience to the Superspeedway and we look forward to their contributions to our team,” says Nashville Superspeedway President Erik Moses. “The goal from the first day we started the rebirth of the Superspeedway has been to make this venue a regional center for all types of entertainment options, in addition to hosting top-level racing. All of these new team members will be valuable contributors to that process and we welcome them to the Music City.”
Greci will be in charge of managing event logistics for the race weekend, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the facility and ensuring that the venue is prepared to offer first-in-class service to new events that will be hosted at the facility throughout the year. Greci joins Nashville after nearly 16 years at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Nashville Superspeedway’s sister track in the Speedway Motorsports family.
Harmon will be responsible for leading and developing ticket sales talent, strategy, service initiatives and revenue opportunities for the NASCAR weekend and other live events. Harmon has nearly two decades of experience in sports and entertainment, including roles with the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Union, and PGA Tour, as well as motorsports.
Prior to joining Nashville Superspeedway, Lazar worked at Clemson University as the Director of Littlejohn Coliseum & Special Events, overseeing Clemson men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as other special events. Lazar has nearly 15 years of experience in sports, entertainment and venue management with venues hosting a wide range of collegiate and NHL events.
The executives will be key as the speedway gears up for another NASCAR weekend in June. Last year’s inaugural Ally 400 was a sold out event.
