A trio of high-profile short track racing events will be held at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in 2020. Track Enterprises and Promoter Bob Sargent will promote the three events, including the prestigious All American 400 Weekend.
Track Enterprises has a well-established relationship with The Fairgrounds after promoting ARCA Menards Series events at the track the last five years.
“We are excited for the chance to add to the rich history that The Fairgrounds track has built,” Sargent said. “We’ve developed great relationships with many people in Nashville over our five years while hosting the ARCA race and we look forward to expanding that with additional events.”
The first race on the current 2020 schedule will be the 5th Annual North/South Super Late Model Challenge slated for May 2-3. As a tri-sanctioned event with the ARCA/CRA Super Series, CARS Tour and Southern Super Series, this annual event features many of the top short track racers in the country.
In addition to the Super Late Model race, the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour will be competing in a 100-lap event that weekend. An additional announcement is expected this weekend on another national touring series being added to the weekend as well.
A major event for Pro Late Models will be heading to the “Music City” on July 18. The Masters of the Pros for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour is moving to Nashville for its eighth edition after being held at Memphis International Raceway in 2019.
The final event on the current schedule features one of the crown jewels of Super Late Model racing, the 36th All American 400 on October 31 – November 1. Recognized as one of the marquee short track events in the country, the All American 400 will draw superstar drivers from all over North America.
Additional details regarding the sanctions/series that will be involved in the All American 400 will be revealed in the coming days.
Track Enterprises is also working on a partnership with the same team who worked with the World of Outlaws race, D&D Events, for onsite management for local racing events.
In addition to offering great food and concession services, Track Enterprises will rely on their expertise in event management and their team to enhance the fan experience.
“D&D Events is excited to partner with Track Enterprises and it is our hope to keep racing alive and well in our great city of Nashville for the 2020 season. We enjoy and appreciate the racing community and want to continue to be a part of the great sport of racing while offering support to the drivers and fans.” says Randy Dyce, Owner of D&D Events, Inc.
Details are currently being worked out on approximately seven local racing shows. Additional information will be released in the coming weeks.
