‘Tennessee Lottery 250’ is second race of Father’s Day Weekend tripleheader
The Tennessee Lottery will serve as the title sponsor of the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, June 19.
The “Tennessee Lottery 250” (2:30 p.m. CT, NBCSN) is the 15th race of the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season and the second race of Nashville Superspeedway’s Father’s Day Weekend tripleheader, which also includes the inaugural “Ally 400” NASCAR Cup Series race (2:30 p.m. CT, NBCSN) on Sunday, June 20 and the “Rackley Roofing 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race (7 p.m., FS1) on Friday, June 18.
The Tennessee Lottery has raised nearly $6 billion to fund education programs in the Volunteer State since its inception in 2004 with more than 1.5 million scholarships and grants awarded. Tennessee Lottery players win on average more than $3 million every day.
“We are thrilled to sponsor this fantastic Father’s Day Weekend event at the Nashville Superspeedway and engage with drivers and fans in a whole new way,” Tennessee Lottery President and CEO Rebecca Paul Hargrove said.
“We want to thank NASCAR and the Superspeedway for this great opportunity. The excitement of this race and our Lottery games make this a perfect combination for fans and drivers – and dads – alike.”
The “Tennessee Lottery 250” is the 22nd NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Nashville Superspeedway’s history, which dates to 2001. The 1.3-mile concrete track hosted two NASCAR Xfinity Series races per year from 2002-2011 with winners including current NASCAR Cup Series stars Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano.
“The Xfinity Series is an essential part of our track’s history and that tradition continues on Father’s Day Weekend with the Tennessee Lottery 250,” said Erik Moses, Nashville Superspeedway’s president.
“The Tennessee Lottery is a difference maker to thousands of students and Tennessee families through the funding it generates for education, and we’re fortunate to have them as a race sponsor and partner this June and into the future.”
