The Nashville Downtown Partnership recently honored Bridgestone Americas with its 2017 INVEST award for the addition of Bridgestone Tower to the downtown community.

“We are honored to receive the INVEST award and proud to call downtown Nashville home,” said Gordon Knapp, CEO and President of Bridgestone Americas. “Organizations like the Nashville Downtown Partnership are having a resounding impact on our city. We look forward to working with all of the downtown businesses and organizations in the years to come to make sure this neighborhood only gets stronger.”

Bridgestone was presented the award at the organization’s annual meeting and awards luncheon on October 18. Since 2003, the Nashville Downtown Partnership has honored over 150 individuals, companies and organizations for outstanding achievements in the LIVE, WORK, PLAY and INVEST categories. Award winners recognized at its annual awards luncheon have all made specific and significant contributions in downtown Nashville.

Home to more than 1,700 teammates and rising 30 stories, Bridgestone Tower is among the most significant corporate headquarters to open in the history of Nashville’s urban core. The Tower is home to Bridgestone Americas corporate staff and six core business units: Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations; Bridgestone Retail Operations; Firestone Building Products; Firestone Fibers and Textiles; Firestone Natural Rubber; and Firestone Industrial Products. The Nashville Downtown Partnership recognized the Tower in part for the projected economic impact it will have on the city.

The Nashville Downtown Partnership is a private sector nonprofit corporation whose core purpose is “to make Downtown Nashville the compelling urban center in the Southeast in which to LIVE, WORK, PLAY and INVEST.” Organized in 1994, the Partnership has transitioned into a downtown leadership organization that focuses on business recruitment and retention, residential and retail development, public space management, access and transportation, communications and marketing.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
