With the end of the season in sight, Christian Bogle and INDY NXT by Firestone will take on their final street course of the year this weekend, August 4-6, as they head to Nashville, Tennessee for the Music City Grand Prix alongside the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. Racing through the streets of downtown, across the Korean War Memorial Bridge and by Nissan Stadium, INDY NXT by Firestone will complete the ninth round of their 14-race season.
While Christian Bogle’s recent performance at Iowa Speedway might not reflect his overall progress and potential, he has been showing consistent improvement throughout the season. Despite finishing 13th two weeks ago and facing the setback of two drive-through penalties, Bogle has been steadily enhancing his pace and has been actively competing for top-ten finishes.
Last season in the Music City Grand Prix, Bogle qualified 11th and drove his way up four positions to earn a seventh-place finish in challenging conditions and on a circuit where many drivers often struggle to avoid damage. Earlier this season, Bogle earned a sixth-place finish in the Streets of Detroit Race 1 after moving up an impressive 12 positions and will look to show the same pace and ability this weekend.
A highlight on the season calendar, the Music City Grand Prix weekend will be filled with music and racing as trackside concerts fill out the schedule as six separate series race through the 11-turn street course. Bogle and INDY NXT will take to the track all three days with two practice sessions divided between Friday and Saturday ahead of Saturday afternoon qualifying. Prior to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES main event, INDY NXT by Firestone will take the green flag on Sunday morning for a 35-lap race.
