(AP) -- Erik Moses attended his first NASCAR race in 2019 as an XFL executive looking to poach marketing ideas during a trip to Dover International Raceway. One year later, Dover poached Moses and sent him to Tennessee to reopen Nashville Superspeedway.
Moses, hired last August, will open the gates this weekend for a track that had sat dormant since Carl Edwards won the 21st and final Xfinity Series race of the 2011 season.
Better yet, Moses will host a sold-out crowd Sunday of roughly 40,000 spectators when NASCAR's premier Cup Series makes its Nashville Superspeedway debut.
