Music City GP might get ink'd in by the end of this week:
Honda Grand Prix of Nashville at Nissan Stadium

Early August would fit in well between what was originally a big gap between Iowa and Mid-Ohio this season but could be tricky for TV purposes next year with the Olympics. Running when the Preds are out of season and the Titans are just beginning preseason is good scheduling though.

So he's racing all of the non-oval events, and maybe the 500, but none of the other ovals. Even the lower speed ones? That's a strange lineup, but puts into some perspective how dangerous open wheel oval racing is considered by other racers outside the discipline.
I know JJ has mentioned that running the 500 is a possibility, but I'll be very surprised if that happens. It would be the easiest one to find sponsorship for, so if it doesn't happen that will mean JJ said "No." I expect JJ to say No... just my opinion.

Going the Max Chilton direction excluding the 500, if deciding to go forth with it.

Absolutely nothing wrong with it.

I really couldn't care much either way at this point regarding RHR, Marco, and Veach. Veach has had three years and has shown zero progress, Marco is Marco, RHR is just kinda there. However, I do believe DHL is an important partner to keep in the fold. Gainbridge has forked out a lot of money but they're tied at the hip with Veach. Ideally Hinch and Genesys find a way to expand their program to full-time.

Sato and RLL seems like a no-brainer to me. It's probably the most stable situation he's been in and Honda gets to have him in contention a fair amount.

Sergio Perez seems like a massive pipe dream, but Sam Schmidt's comments on bringing in a vet like Helio or JPM alongside Askew and O'Ward in a partial capacity are interesting.

Will you be able to see anything?
Lots of grandstands down in the Turn 1 braking zone that look good. The others look like they have a good view of other slow speed corners and the pits.

For those who have the money, I’m sure the Turn 11 and Nissan Stadium club areas have some amazing views.

Graham, protests aren't organized by corporations looking to make profit, you gibbering idiot. Also, there's no Constitutional right to host sporting events. And just because some people unwisely choose to overcrowd doesn't mean it's a good idea for everyone to do dumb things. "But Mom, all the other kids are jumping off the roof!"
