NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sterling Marlin thinks his group has an offer Music City can't refuse to save the historic short track where he started racing and where legends like Richard Petty, Fireball Roberts and Dale Earnhardt once competed furiously.
Marlin helped detail a proposal Thursday by Save My Fairgrounds to renovate Nashville's fairgrounds and site of one of the nation's oldest race tracks.
Horses first raced here in 1891, and cars began running on the site as early as June 1904. NASCAR's top level raced here until 1984 when Nashville officials refused to improve the track.
Marlin says the Nashville track has been a great proving ground that must be saved or risk having Bristol the only track in Tennessee where NASCAR races.
