  At any rate, notwithstanding the lack of indoor facilities for DC, I really think that Nashville is a great spot for DCI finals.  And whats a little warm weather?

As long as the average of around 9 days of some rain isn't during finals week.

I-840 is not an interstate, but a ring highway and therefore does not "intersect".   Actually the I-24 is really the odd one.

Ok looked at larger scale map and see ye old beltway as we call them our my way (Baltimore, DC, Richmond and even that mess they call a beltway around Harrisburg). Still only see 3 major highways so waiting on Mike to enlighten us...

I just looked and my guess too. If I go to Nashville I’m taking a side trip and throw rocks at the old Saturn plant in Spring Hill. Had two of them, first I swore by and second one.....

... you swore at?

Winner winner chicken dinner....

Should have known when I bought it and salesman tried to BS me. First car needed oil pump which would have cost me $700 to fix. So salesman sez for trade in will give you blue book minus the $700. Told Sparky the dealers true cost would be what GM charged them for the parts (less than my cost). Then he sputtered about labor and after I yelled the 8 letter word for BS and told him my car would sit until a mechanic had down time and had nothing to do. 
 

Then I clued him In that my dad was a mechanic at a dealership in his younger days. Then I realized head of service department had come over (he knew me). Service head told salesmen “just give him blue book , he knows how things work”.

Yes the 65, which I meant when I said 64, my bad.  So what is the 4th?  There are the 65, 24 and 40, all of which I have driven.

I don’t know.  I live in Chicago.

Keep in mind that the average temp in Vegas in August is between 100 & 104 degrees.  Not much fun at rehearsals.  If we are concerned about mm safety ( even in their footwear) we should be concerned with the heat.  Even dry heat which is a concern for fast dehydration.  Heat concern would be true with any southern locale.  And if you rehearse on turf it would be the worst case for heat.

As a spectator Vegas can work, but then I could stay indoors most of the time.

I've lived there for many years in the past.  There was a thread about the indoor facilities available in the city.

You're not wrong to be concerned. The average temperatures are actually higher than 104...  ...but there are indoor places too.

Well you should know that the I-65 is the route to Indianapolis from Chicago, then to Nashville  Or, I-57 to I-24  to Nashville.  My query about the 4th Interstate was more rhetorical, since I do know that there is no 4th Interstate intersecting at Nashville and I live in Montreal.

I don’t know because I’ve only drove past Nashville going elsewhere.  Perhaps tag @MikeRapp.  He’s from that area and said there were four interstates going through Nashville.

The "I" in I-840 stands for Interstate.  It is part of the Eisenhower Interstate system.  So technically it is an Interstate highway. Three digits indicates it is a connecting highway to interstates.  In this case it would be a ring road connector to I-40.  Many Interstates do intersect 90 & 94 in Chicago,  64, 65, 70 & 44 in St. Louis, 24, 64 & 40 in Nashville.

If Nashville can't be for Nationals, a Regional there might be nice.  I still think a rotating regional model would be well received.

Yet. MikeRapp has not chimed in since my original query.
