Trans-Am’s TA2 Class Added To Music City Grand Prix

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Officials from the Music City Grand Prix have announced that the Trans-Am Series presented by Pirelli will bring American muscle to the inaugural event weekend.

Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers will be taking over the track Friday and Saturday for TA2 races during the Music City Grand Prix. The three-day festival of speed, sound, food and fun is scheduled for Aug. 6-8 in Nashville, Tenn.

“We are pleased to partner with Music City Grand Prix to bring Trans-Am’s TA2 powered by AEM to Nashville,” said John Clagett, president, Trans Am Race Company “TA2 is our fastest-growing class which races some of America’s most iconic muscle cars side-by-side. Nashville is a great city to celebrate American muscle cars — it’s a city that embraces Americana with a touch of nostalgia while offering up high-octane entertainment.

“Trans-Am is that too, and therefore a perfect addition to the event.”

Several of Music City Grand Prix’s investors were instrumental in bringing the Trans-Am Series race to life.

Drivers Stanton Barrett and Justin Marks, as well as Big Machine Label Group CEO and president Scott Borchetta, were key to making the Trans-Am event happen.

All three will race during the Nashville Trans-Am event.

“The opportunity to be able to race in the first-ever Music City Grand Prix weekend in the Trans Am Series is a dream come true. Working with the Music City Grand Prix team over the last several years to bring IndyCar back to Nashville has already been very gratifying,” said Borchetta. “Now, knowing that the team and I get to be part of our hometown Grand Prix and get the chance to race through the streets (and across the bridge!) downtown, this weekend has a huge circle around it on all of our calendars!”

The Music City Grand Prix already had an opportunity to get involved with the series at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Saturday afternoon, Scott Borchetta and Justin Marks will race, with Marks in a Music City Grand Prix car, at Road Atlanta in the Trans-Am Series.

“I’m excited to participate in this weekend’s Trans-Am Series (action) and, in the process, show my support for the Music City Grand Prix. As a driver, I’m dedicated to sharing my passion for racing,” said Marks. “Getting involved in Music City Grand Prix allows me to do just that while also sharing the best-in-class food, music and entertainment that my hometown serves up.”

“Having investors in our event that not only understand racing, but also participate in it is a huge benefit for our team and will be for our fans next August,” said Jason Rittenberry, COO, Music City Grand Prix. “To bring a racing series that allows them to race in Nashville is special.  We can’t wait to have America’s Road Racing Series in the Music City.”
