While six races remain in the 2023 INDY NXT by Firestone season, Danial Frost is scheduled to take on the final street course of the year this weekend, August 4-6, at the Music City Grand Prix in Nashville, Tennessee. Taking on one of the most anticipated events of the season, Danial is ready to work his way back to the top step of the podium.

“Following the event in Iowa we found a few minor issues that prevented maximum speed,” explained Danial. “Additionally, with the contact on the second lap that bent the suspension, I did not have the best handling racecar, especially for an oval. I am looking to put all that behind me this weekend and perform on the Streets of Nashville.”

With a series of highs and lows so far this season, Danial is due for a strong result this weekend on the downtown streets of Nashville, Tennessee. As the third street course venue on the calendar for INDY NXT by Firestone, Danial has already demonstrated his potential on street courses with two notable results. Danial started the season off strong with a win in the Streets of St. Petersburg and backed up his street course skill with a fifth-place finish in the Streets of Detroit, his best two finishes of the 2023 season.

As the season progresses, six rounds of points are still up for grabs. Currently seventh in the Championship standings, Danial sits only 45 points outside of the top-three with the chance to move forward.

With five other racing series and trackside concerts taking place throughout the event, the weekend will begin for the INDY NXT by Firestone field of drivers on Friday afternoon with their first practice session. Drivers will then receive a secondary practice the following morning prior to qualifying on Saturday afternoon for the INDY NXT by Firestone Music City Grand Prix. Ahead of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, INDY NXT and Danial Frost will receive the green flag for their 35-lap race on Sunday morning at 9:10 AM CT.
