On your marks…get set…go! If you love NASCAR races you’re going to want to head to the Nashville Superspeedway this Saturday, June 29, 2024 from 5 pm ET for the Tennessee Lottery 250.

We’re teaming up with Wilderness at the Smokies to sponsor the Chevy Camaro race car #4 driven by Dawson Cram and JD Motorsports which will be tearing up the rubber. It’s going to be a super fun day filled with excitement from start to finish!

Dawson, who is 22-years-old, is an up and coming NASCAR racer who comes from a long family history of stock car racing on both of his parents’ sides of the family. Both of his grandfathers raced in their day, his uncles have raced and even continue to work in the sport today. His father, Kevin Cram, is a former NASCAR Cup Series crew chief having worked with some of the greatest drivers in the history of NASCAR, including Bill Elliott, Dale Earnhardt Sr., Ron Hornaday Jr., and Steve Park among many others. From 2017 to 2021 Dawson ran his own race team that he co-owned with his family, being the youngest team owner in NASCAR history at only the age of 16. In 2023, he ran the majority of the Xfinity Series in the car #74 for CHK Racing. This year he is running full-time in Car #4 for JD Motorsports.

We’ll also be an associate sponsor for Chevy Camaro race car #7 driven by Patrick Emreling and Team SS Greenlight Racing.

Patrick, who is 31-years-old, began racing his NASCAR racing career at the Whelen Modified Tour in 2011 where he finished 13th in the points standing. He has been in 37 NASCAR Xfinity races in his career and had his best finish, 34th, in 2023. He has also been in 2 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Races and 2 ARCA Menards Series in his career.

The race will be aired on USA Networks. For more information on the Tennessee Lottery 250 race at the Nashville Superspeedway visit

Both Dawson and Patrick will be vacationing at our resort and making appearances at Soaky Mountain down the road. Stay tuned for details on our social media.

Good luck Dawson and Patrick – make us proud!
