BMMCGP takes place in and around Nissan Stadium in Nashville, TN. As in any outdoor setting, you will encounter various types of terrain. At BMMCGP, that includes parking lots, sidewalks, and grassy areas. The area is generally flat with a few small rolling hills. The distance from the rideshare drop off on Woodland St. to the track viewing platform is about 350 yards, and to the furthest viewing location it is about 3/4th of a mile. Understand BMMCGP is a large site. Please plan accordingly for this. There are distances to be covered to get to all the areas and stages on the site, and as with any outdoor setting, rain can impact the conditions.

Access Tent

Access Tent hours are the same as public gate times, and it is located near Gate A. The Access Tent is where guests with disabilities can come to get information and request services. This is also the designated area for recharging wheelchairs, scooters, and other medical devices. Remember, guests use this power at their own risk, and the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix is not responsible for any personal equipment.

SERVICE ANIMALS - Definition and Policies

The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix welcomes and supports the rights and attendance of all persons with disabilities that rely on the special skills of a trained service animal. What we DO NOT support, nor will tolerate, are pets being misrepresented by their owners as service animals, when in fact they are not. So please, don't do it. Leave your pet at home. We mean it!

Service Animal Definition

A "service animal" means "any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability". The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler's disability. Emotional support or comfort animals are not considered service animals under the ADA and therefore are not allowed at the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. Please note that all service dogs, including those from out of the state, are subject to local dog ordinances which include a valid rabies certificate.

Service Animal Policies

For our patrons with disabilities who wish to bring their legitimate service animal to the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix, we ask that you review and follow the policies outlined below:

  1. Service animals must always be accompanied by the handler with the disability.
  2. Service animals must always be under the control and supervision of their handler.
  3. Service animals are not permitted to be left unattended under any circumstances.
  4. Handlers are always required to be prepared for and clean up after their animals at all times.
  5. We reserve the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the venue if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or is in violation of these policies above.
PADDOCK RULES & REGULATIONS

Are the Paddock areas open to everyone?

The SRO Motorsports (GT America), Trans Am Series, and Stadium Super Truck Series Paddock areas are open to any ticket holder at the event.
The IndyCar Paddock (see map) is an exclusive, secure area only accessible to those with the proper credentials or a Paddock Pass.

Can I purchase a Paddock Pass?

Paddock Passes (to the IndyCar Paddock) will not be sold as an “add-on” due to space limitations. The best way to gain access to the IndyCar Paddock is to purchase a Club RPM, East Club, or Turn 9 Club ticket. Information can be found at musiccitygp.com.

LOST & FOUND

Any lost/left items located inside of the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix/Nissan Stadium “campus” will be returned to the Nissan Stadium Lost and Found.

To contact Nissan Stadium about Lost and Found items submit a form to Nissan Stadium Lost and Found.
