Nashville, TN (Thursday, October 1, 2020) – October marks the busiest month of the season for Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (NFS), with three events scheduled. The entire month builds up to the prestigious All American 400 at America’s Favorite Short Track – Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, on the weekend of Sunday, November 1st. The month kicks off with Local Racing Presented by Ford Lincoln of Franklin this Saturday, October 3rd, with eight divisions in action as well as the Baby Grand National Series.
Three nights remain on the 2020 schedule at NFS with tight points races all across the board, and great racing on track expected each week. Cole Williams sits atop the Pro-Late Model Championship Points Standings following his win back on September 12th. With just a one-point advantage, two-time Track Champion Williams will be looking for his third win of the season in an attempt to put distance between himself and Nashville, Tennessee’s, Dylan Fetcho.
Tanner Arms will also be looking for his third Whelen Super Trucks win of the season, as he attempts to separate himself from fellow Track Championship contender, John Burns. After finishing over a half-a-second behind Arms during the last race, Burns said he believed he had a truck capable of winning the race, he just couldn’t get close enough to Arms to make a move. The pair have just seven points between them heading into the weekend.
In addition to the other six Local Racing divisions on the agenda (Limited Late Models, Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, Pest Doctor Front Runners, BH Holmes Construction Legends, and Dye Hard Hair Salon Bandoleros), NFS will welcome the USA Central Division Pro Grand National Series to the ¼-mile oval for their race presented by Oasis Irrigation Nashville. Baby Grand cars are miniature motorsports cars; the weight of the 2/3rds scale car is 1,500 pounds, with a Yamaha 1,250cc motor.
October 3rd is also set aside as the kick-off to Breast Cancer Awareness month. Fans will find exclusive Pink NFS Collector’s items at the Swag Shop; and fans who wear pink to the races get a free popcorn at the concession stand. A portion of the sales at the NFS Swag Shop will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Central Tennessee. The bars will also be open again this weekend, with favorites like Coors Lite, Bud Lite, Miller Lite, and Yee-Haw.
