NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tickets to this summer's Big Machine Music City Grand Prix go on sale to the general public this week.

The event will happen from Aug. 5 to 7 on the downtown street circuit around the Nissan Stadium campus.

On-track action will feature the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Indy Lights, GT America, Trans Am, Stadium SUPER Trucks and Vintage Indy, as well as nightly concerts and a Saturday evening fireworks show.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 13, at 10 a.m. Organizers will have several ticket packages available, starting at $125.

Last year, the event drew a crowd of more than 100,000 fans in its inaugural event.

It made history not only for Music City, but also for IndyCar racing. Never before had IndyCars raced over water, which changed as they crossed over the Korean Veterans Bridge — making the Nashville course a standout.

The race track circled around Nissan Stadium, creating the ultimate hub for fans.

Not only was the one-of-a-kind event a sight to see for IndyCar racing fans, but it brought millions of tourism dollars to Nashville. The city normally sees a slower downtown in August with the school year beginning, no conventions and less leisure. So the boost really comes at a time the city needs it.

All that action will be back and bigger this year. Music City Grand Prix officials said they learned a lot from the event's first year, which they will use to make this year's event even better.
