    How much of Nashville are they going to see? Regardless of the city, do the teams hang around before and after, or do they fly in that morning, change in the same hotel as the banquet, and fly home the next morning? Unlike NYC or LV, Music City is a short enough flight that you wouldn't really need to get there a day early to rest up. Seems to me if they had any interest in seeing Nashville, they'd have done it long before now. Just me.

    I gotta get up there and ride that train one day. I work for a company that made and installed the control systems for it (and a lot of other urban mass transit systems) and yet have never been on one.

    Why not after 8 lol?? And ur right it’s to compact up there. Streets should have been wider and parking does suck

    Nashville will be a great place to have the NASCAR Awards program, I can only hope they have it at the:
    Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center

    I have stayed there numerous times and it is a great venue and great place to stay. But that is JMHO. :D

    Very meh. As a fan who once had an interest in attending this some day, there's no comparison in Vegas and Nashville. One has endless options of things to do and actually makes an event feel special. The other, well...

    Well, this Boomer didn't, but I'm out of touch with the pop culture of my own generation.

    For Nashville, I was actually on a Late Model team that won the Atlantic Seaboard Championship and NASCAR took us all around town for different activities and events. Our Awards Ceromony was at the Opryland Hotel and it was Amazing. We came in two nights before and stayed till the day after the awards show. They had suites set up by all the major sponsors and we got to meet all the Executives from those Companies and were given gifts and lots of product lol. Nobody was interested in flying in and leaving that night. NASCAR does it right, you feel like a king and want to experience it all.

    I never watch awards shows. One big, gigantic mutual admiration gathering and tons of butt kissing . The only way I'd watch the NASCAR awards banquet would be if it were held in Brian France' garage and he was the mc. Loads of alcohol, no tuxedos, David Allen Coe as the musical entertainment and Ron White providing comedic relief. And every top ten driver gets to air out his beefs with NASCAR and other drivers. A redneck throwdown. After it's over, everybody goes to the Waffle House for breakfast around 4:00 AM. And the cops have to be called to said Waffle House, because Harvick and Shrub tie up in a brawl. Now that's a party to watch.

    IDK just me but Las Vegas or NYC still make the most sense. Nashville is a decent city with some things to do for sure, just not on the level of those two.
