Nashville Superspeedway is a motor racing complex located in Gladeville, Tennessee (though the track has a Lebanon address), United States, about 48 km (30 miles) east of Nashville. It is a concrete oval track 2.145 km (1.333 miles) in length. Nashville Superspeedway is owned by Dover Motorsports, which owns Dover International Speedway.

The track was built in 2001 and currently hosts four major races: two NASCAR Nationwide Series races, and two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Current permanent seating capacity is approximately 50,000 [1]. Additional portable seats are brought in for some events, and the facility is said to have been designed in a way that it would be relatively simple to increase the seating capacity to 150,000 should NASCAR decide to award the track with a Sprint Cup event. As of 2005, NASCAR has shown little interest in staging an event at the track, though NASCAR would likely not object if track ownership moved one of its races from Dover International Speedway to Nashville. Management has shown no inclination to move either of its two successful races away from Dover. Nashville Superspeedway is the only track to host two NASCAR Nationwide Series races without hosting a Sprint Cup event.

As is a Nashville metropolitan tradition, specially-designed Gibson Les Paul guitars are presented to race winners in place of conventional trophies. The track also has a reputation for producing many first-time winners.

The track is referred by the classic term of a "superspeedway" (a track of one mile or longer, compared to a short track), and is named to differentiate itself from the .596 mile Nashville Speedway USA (now Music City Motorplex) at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds near downtown Nashville. Until 1984, the Nashville Speedway USA had conducted a pair of 420-lap races in the Winston Cup Series, but NASCAR pulled its sanctioning license from the circuit after disputes over who would manage the track took place prior to the start of the 1985 season.
