Nashville, TN (Tuesday, May 4, 2021) – This weekend, Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway will play host to one of the largest racing weekends of the year with a massive triple-header program. The headline of the show is the Crosley Brands Music City 200 Presented by T-Mobile & Action 247 for the ARCA Menards East Series, but just as intriguing is the entry list for the North/South Super Late Model Challenge. The tri-sanctioned event will feature superstar drivers from the ARCA/CRA Super Series, CARS Tour, and the Southern Super Series.
Over 20 Super Late Models from all across the country have already entered the 100 lap contest, including industry heavy hitters. Pinellas Park, Florida’s Stephen Nasse has his All American Concrete/Brembo Brakes number 51 pre-entered for this weekend. The event will mark his first race since his mutual split from Jett Motorsports last month. Nasse picked up a Pro Late Model win during All American 400 weekend last season.
Another former Pro Late Model winner in Nashville who is also ready to compete in the North/South Challenge is Matt Craig. Coming off a win last weekend at Five Flag Speedway, Craig will return to the track that he dominated in 2020 to pick up a Masters of the Pros 150 win with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour.
A young field of talent is also ready set to battle Saturday night, including Sarasota, Florida’s Jett Noland. Noland already has a top ten finish with Southern Super Series this season, and had strong runs during the World Series of Asphalt Racing at New Smyrna Speedway this February. Noland will unload his Hype Motorsports – Noland’s Roofing number 81 looking for his first major Super Late Model win.
A few other notables already entered to race Saturday include California’s Jesse Love who has been working his way through late model racing since his Junior Late Model days at Madera Speedway. Plus, Iowa’s Sammy Smith is set to get behind the wheel of his TMC number 51, Jake Finch is expected in his Pheonix Construction 51F, along with Jake Garcia in his number 35 machine.
The North/South Super Late Model Challenge is part of a huge night of racing during the Crosley Brands Music City 200 Presented by T-Mobile & Action 24/7.
