All three NASCAR top series were active this past weekend at Tennessee’s 1.333 mile concrete tri-oval Nashville Superspeedway. The Cup Series dealt with on and off rain, lightning and track drying but managed to complete the full 300-lap Ally 400. Three of Joe Gibbs Racing’s Toyota drivers dominated the race (together they led 250 laps) but Chase Elliott, and his #9 Chevrolet, took the checkered flag.
