There will be more than just the on-track excitement to look forward to during Curb Records/Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers All American 400 Presented by US Tank and Cryogenics weekend at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Friday-Sunday, November 3-5.
It kicks off Friday where the first 500 kids will be receiving NASCAR commemorative arm bands thanks to our partners at Music City Collectibles. The giveaway will be followed by a full night of crowning ¼-mile track champions for the 2023 season at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.
Then on Saturday the local Pro Late Model division will crown a 2023 track champion, along with ASA STARS National Tour qualifying and races for the CRA Street Stocks and Vore’s Compact Touring Series. The first of two autograph sessions of the weekend will take place with the stars of VCTS. The Team Construction Autograph Session & Candy Giveaway will be located at the VCTS tent on the concourse.
The first 500 kids through the gates on Sunday will get free checkered flags. A second autograph session will take place on the frontstretch before All American 400 pre-race ceremonies featuring the ASA STARS National Tour’s finest. It will be a great time to meet and get autographs from Super Late Model racing’s best like Ty Majeski, Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse, and more.
Additionally, a few lucky kids in attendance will be taking home a brand-new bike during the bike giveaway before pre-race. The United States Air Force gaming trailer will also be in attendance on Sunday for fans to take part in a few extracellular activities before racing action begins.

ASA STARS National Tour
The ASA STARS National Tour debuted in March 2023 for Super Late Model racing in America. Announced in October 2022, many of the best drivers in America will compete in the ten-race national tour with a minimum $100,000 point fund. The championship team will be guaranteed $25,000.
The ASA STARS National Tour is made up of three races from each of the regional pavement Super Late Model Series under the Track Enterprises banner – the ASA/CRA Super Series, the ASA Midwest Tour and the ASA Southern Super Series.
The Team Construction Winner’s Circle program has been announced as a part of the ASA STARS National Tour for licensed drivers/teams with perfect attendance. The program provides additional financial incentives to those teams who support the series.
Track Enterprises, a racing promotions company based in Illinois, will operate the ASA STARS National Tour. It announced the acquisition of Champion Racing Association (CRA) in January 2022 and followed that up with the purchase of the Midwest Tour in July. In October, Track Enterprises President Bob Sargent announced a partnership with the Southern Super Series, which set the table for the formation of the ASA STARS National Tour.
