Motorsports industry veteran Matt Greci has been promoted to senior vice president and general manager at Nashville Superspeedway, replacing Erik Moses, who left Dec. 2 to become executive director of the Fiesta Bowl.
“This is a tremendous opportunity with a great team in an exciting destination,” Greci said. “We are steadfast on continuing to build the brand and create an entertainment solution in the Nashville market.”
It’s a pivotal time for the Tennessee track with the return of NASCAR racing in 2021 after a 37-year Cup dry spell in the market. In 2021, the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series was the first, full capacity race since the pandemic with 75,000 people attending over three days of racing. The popular race was held June 24-26 this year and will return in 2023. Greci will be building on that success.
“Matt started at Charlotte Motor Speedway as an intern and through hard work and dedication, successfully moved through a variety of positions before becoming the vice president of events at Charlotte and then vice president of events and operations at Nashville Superspeedway,” said Marcus Smith president and CEO of Speedway Motorsports. “We look forward to supporting Matt and our Nashville Superspeedway team as we move toward the 2023 Ally 400 NASCAR race weekend, continuing the commitment to fans and community that Erik established.”
Greci relocated to Nashville shortly after Speedway Motorsports acquired the 1.33-mile speedway as part of its purchase of Dover Motorsports in 2021. Prior to that, Greci spent nearly 16 years at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he began his career as a sales department intern, then joined the speedway full-time as the track rental and suite coordinator for corporate sales. Greci moved to the events department in 2008, working his way from events manager to vice president of events.
Speedway Motorsports owns 10 tracks including Atlanta Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. The Nashville Superspeedway is the largest concrete-only track in NASCAR.
