Tickets are on sale now and will be limited to 390 passengers.
“I am excited that the Music City Star will be available for Lebanon residents for the big race in downtown Nashville,” Lebanon Mayor Rick Bell said in a news release. “Serving on the board of Middle Tennessee Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), I see first-hand how Lebanon plays a major role in present and future regional transportation opportunities.”
