LEBANON, Tenn. (April 29, 2021) – As Nashville Superspeedway completes its rebirth as Middle Tennessee’s racing and entertainment jewel, The Cat Rental Store at Thompson Machinery has been named the track’s preferred equipment rental partner leading up to its June 18-20 NASCAR tripleheader weekend. The weekend includes the track’s inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race, the “Ally 400,” and is the first Cup Series race in Middle Tennessee in 37 years.
The Cat Rental Store at Thompson Machinery provides rental equipment such as skid steers, backhoe loaders, telehandlers, light towers and more. At Nashville Superspeedway, those products are used for renovations and improvements around the property, including in infield buildings, grandstand areas and campground locations.
“The Cat Rental Store at Thompson Machinery has been a great asset for our critical construction projects going on around the track on a daily basis,” said Erik Moses, Nashville Superspeedway’s president. “As we grow to become an integral part of this community, we thank The Cat Rental Store at Thompson Machinery for assisting us in those efforts as we look forward to welcoming fans back to the track on June 18-20.”
Thompson Machinery, founded in 1944 in Nashville, has 16 locations across Middle Tennessee, West Tennessee, and North Mississippi and is the exclusive Caterpillar dealer for those areas.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have NASCAR back in Nashville, and working with the Nashville Superspeedway to help bring the track to life has been a privilege,” said Mike Rattan, The Cat Rental Store’s General Manager. “At Thompson Machinery, we’re always excited for an opportunity to partner with local businesses to build stronger communities, and we know how electrifying it will be for fans to gather together and watch the event come race day. We’re just thrilled to play a part.”
Nashville Superspeedway’s first two races on its Father’s Day weekend slate include the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, June 19 (2:30 p.m. CT, NBCSN) and the “Rackley Roofing 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday, June 18 (7 p.m. CT, FS1).
