Counties will have authority

NASHVILLE (press release)—Tennessee race tracks and drag strips will no longer have to register with the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance’s (TDCI) Division of Regulatory Boards.  

Earlier this year, the Tennessee Legislature approved Public Chapter No. 354 (SB0480/HB0763) removing TDCI’s regulation of race tracks. Instead, race track owners must provide proof of insurance to the county clerk of the county where a motor vehicle race is conducted.

As part of this change, county legislative bodies are authorized to enact additional regulations.
