Dover Motorsports Inc. announced its plans Wednesday.
The company has been trying unsuccessfully to secure a NASCAR Sprint Cup race since 2001 and superspeedway general manager Cliff Hawks says the track cannot continue without a date, despite what he calls a strong Nashville market.
Dover opened the 1.33-mile track 10 years ago. The superspeedway has hosted NASCAR trucks and Nationwide races and also had a slot on the Indy Racing League schedule before losing that after the 2008 season.
