About Veterans Motorplex at the Rim
Home of Tennessee’s Family Action Track! Racing Saturday nights March-October on a fast 1/4 mile high-banked asphalt bullring…fun for the whole family!
Veterans Motorplex at the Rim (formerly Highland Rim Speedway) is a 1/4 mile oval asphalt track located off Exit 104 on I-65, just 20 minutes north of Nashville, TN.
Built in 1961 originally as a dirt track, Highland Rim Speedway has played host to several NASCAR legends, including the Alabama Gang. In addition, Highland Rim Speedway is the site of country music legend and racer Marty Robbins’ first racing victory.
Veteran’s Motorplex races the Pro 8 Late Model Series, Sportsman, Super Stock, Pure Stock, Legends, Bandoleros, Ridge runners, Baby Grand, Rim Runner, and Pro-4 Mod divisions.
The Speedway has abundant parking both for fans and racers, and can accommodate haulers of all sizes. Race fans enjoy the racing action in the beautiful all-aluminum seating bleachers, and those needing special assistance can enjoy the racing action from the elevated wheelchair platform connected to the front stretch grandstands.
Fans and teams alike can enjoy mouth-watering food and drinks from our on-site concession stands located both in the grandstand areas and the pit area. Children enjoy the play area near the entrance gate that features several inflatable bounce houses, and everyone can get great souvenir items as well as photos and videos of the racing action at the Souvenir Alley Souvenir Stand!
