GALLERY: 2023 Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the Streets of Nashville

By Christian Koelle, Staff Photographer

Kyle Kirkwood held off Scott McLaughlin in a three-lap shoot-out to earn his second career victory on Sunday in Downtown Nashville. Unlike previous editions of the Grand Prix, Sunday’s race was calm. The drivers of the NTT Data IndyCar Series battled high temps and humid conditions as well as a dirty racing surface. 

Here’s the 2023 Big Machine Music City Grand Prix from our photographer Christian Koelle’s viewfinder.

Christian returns to Kickin' the Tires again in 2023 for his third straight season. He will mainly serve as a photographer for the organization while also being the main ARCA Menards Series writer. He currently plans to do at least 40 races across the three NASCAR National Series, ARCA Menards Series, IndyCar, and make his NHRA debut at Bristol in June. Christian's favorite race tracks include Nashville Superspeedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Barber Motorsports Park, Martinsville Speedway, and Iowa Speedway among other tracks. One of Christian's dreams is for NASCAR or ARCA to return to Memphis International Raceway.
