Pro Late Model 100 Highlights Full 8-in-1 Show for Opening Night at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway
Nashville, TN (Tuesday, March 16, 2021) – Saturday, April 17, 2021, will mark the 64th season stock cars turn laps on the historic five-eighths mile paved oval at The Fairgrounds Nashville. Built in 1904, Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (NFS) has contributed its fair share to auto racing history in the United States, and the next chapter begins at America’s Favorite Short Track in just one month.
All eight NFS local divisions will be in action; highlighted by a 100 lap Pro Late Model feature, joined by the Whelen Super Trucks, Limited Late Models, Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, Pest Doctor Front Runners, BH Holmes Construction Legends Cars, and Dye Hard Hair Salon Bandoleros.
The 2020 NFS Track Champions will be recognized on stage at 5:00 pm ahead of the racing program beginning at 5:30. Tickets are on sale now at a discounted price of just $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and military personnel, and kid’s tickets are only $5. Tickets can be purchased online at nashvillefairgroundsspeedway.racing, over the phone by calling (615) 254-1986, or at the Speedway Box Office, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am until 4:00 pm.
Dylan Fetcho will be back behind the wheel of his number 89 US Tanks Ford Fusion looking to defend his Pro Late Model Track Champion title against the likes of Cole Williams, Davey Coble, William Hale, Tandy Marlin and many more. Fetcho won the championship last season by just seven points over two-time champion, Cole Williams. The chase for the 2021 Championship begins on Saturday, April 17th.
Tanner Arms leads what is expected to be a solid field of Whelen Super Trucks on the five-eighths mile in 2021. Arms won his first truck championship last season by just nine points over 2019 champion John Burns. Burns, along with Corey Rowland, James Shaw, Howard Tucker, Michael Curran, Troy Hall, Phillip Hill, and others are registered for the ‘21 season.
The Limited Late Model class of 2020 put on a show for fans at America’s Favorite Short Track all season long. The Championship fight came down the All American 400 Race Weekend, the final race of the season, between three drivers who were, remarkably, separated by just seven points going into the 50 lap finale. The battle raged throughout the race and when the smoke cleared, Johnathon Dishman was awarded the Championship crown just three points ahead of Kevin Rollins and six in front of Jeffery Belt. Perhaps Dishman is the pre-season favorite for back-to-back titles though the likes of Jeremy Burns, Payton Hamlett, Jim Jordan, Jerry Pryor, Dwayne Hudson, and Jeffery Templeton may say otherwise.
