ASA STARS National Tour
ASA STARS North Wilkesboro Speedway Schedule, Entry Blank Now Available
Apr 17, 2023
For the first time in nearly 40 years, and only the second time ever, ASA will sanction the racing action at Slinger Super Speedway on April 23.
The ASA Midwest Tour will bring their ‘Stars and Cars’ to Slinger for the Miracle on the High Banks 2; the 76th Miller Lite Season Opener, which will also be the season opening event for the ASA-sanctioned Midwest Tour.
Way back in 1984, on Friday night, May 18, the original American Speed Association made its one and only appearance at the high-banked quarter mile oval, a 300-lap grind won by future NASCAR Star Mark Martin. After limited NASCAR Cup Series success in 1982 and 1983, Martin returned to The ASA Silver Creek Racing Series in ‘84. In the third race of the year, Martin found victory lane at Slinger in the Coca-Cola Badger 300. The victory was his only ASA win of 1984, but he had four other runner-up finishes.
Martin did win four ARTGO races that year and the Slinger Nationals championship.
Advance tickets for the April 23 Miller Lite Season Opener are on sale at the track or by visiting slingersuperspeedway.com. Spectator gates for the Miracle on the High Banks 2 will open at noon, with racing action set to begin at 2:00PM.
The ASA Brand will return to Slinger Super Speedway again in July, as the STARS National Tour comes to town for the 44th Annual Slinger Nationals – one of the country’s premier short track events. New in 2023, the ASA STARS National Tour opened its 10-race, six-state 2023 schedule at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on Saturday, March 11, 2023. Georgia racer Casey Roderick won the Sunshine State 200.

ASA STARS National Tour
The ASA STARS National Tour debuted in March of 2023 for Super Late Model racing in America. Announced last October, 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, thanks to Team Construction.
Track Enterprises, a Racing Promotions Company based in Illinois, will operate the ASA STARS National Tour. It announced the acquisition of the CRA sanctioning body in January 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.
