The Nashville Superspeedway is a motor racing complex located in Gladeville with an address in Lebanon, both in the U.S. state of Tennessee, about 48 km east of Nashville. The surface of the 1.333 miles ( 2.145 km ) long course consists of concrete. Owner of the Nashville Super Speedway is Dover Motorsports, which also belongs to the Dover International Speedway.

The track was built in 2001 and serves from the venue for four important races: Two races of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, one of the Indy Racing League and a race in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The seating capacity is around 50,000 seats. Portable seats can also be installed for special events, so that a crowd of up to 150,000 seats can be achieved, for example, for a race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup. However, there is little interest on the part of NASCAR to organize a race there. Also Dover Motorsports has shown to date no interest to move one of the two successful races in the Sprint Cup from its other Speedway, Dover International Speedway here. The Nashville Super Speedway is the only track that keeps two races of the NASCAR Nationwide Series without a race in the Sprint Cup.

As is tradition in the region Nashville, the winner in the special design of guitars Gibson Les Paul will be presented in place of conventional trophies.

The track was titled with the classical concept of " Super Speedway " - although this, by definition, no one is - to distinguish it from the former Nashville Speedway USA in Nashville can. The track has a very wavy for an oval concrete surface, so the lap times for the track layout are comparatively slow. Because of these problems the route loses her IndyCar race in 2009, which is replaced by a street race in Toronto, Canada.

Since the track has also lost all of 2012, NASCAR racing, the track will be closed from 2012 and offered for sale to private customers.
