ASA STARS National Tour
Historic Events Await on Second Half of ASA STARS Schedule
Jun 24, 2023
The old adage “you can’t beat Mother Nature” rang true – twice for the ASA Southern Super Series.
Makeup dates are being considered for the Thursday, June 22 postponement of the Accent Imaging 100. The Shootout by the Sea scheduled for Saturday, June 24th has been cancelled, but series and track officials are hopeful they can find a way to work together in 2024.
The Southern Super Series has been plagued by weather during the first half of the 2023 season. The April 1 Georgia Spring Nationals at Crisp Motorsports Park was cancelled, and the April 15 Rumble by the River at Montgomery Motor Speedway was postponed. The Southern National Motorsports Park event was added after the April 1 cancellation of the Crisp event. The busy touring series schedules for Super Late Models have made it difficult to find replacement dates for events affected by weather and doesn’t leave much room for tracks and promoters to find feasible make-up dates.
The next event for the ASA Southern Super Series will be Sunday, July 2nd at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (TN) for the North/South SLM Challenge. The $10,000 to win event is a combination show with the ASA CRA Super Series. Entry forms are available on the Southern Super Series website at www.SouthernSuperSeries.com.
Hocevar Wins Nashville Truck Race
Carson Hocevar took the lead with 40 laps remaining in Friday night’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville Superspeedway and held off every challenge necessary in the closing laps – including a frantic push from his competitors on a restart with three laps remaining – to earn his second career victory.
The 20 year old Michigan driver has been busy recently. In the past 21 days, he has competed in seven events that included one NASCAR Cup Series start, two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start, three nights of racing at Eldora Speedway, the Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway, and last Sunday in the ASA STARS National Tour event at the Milwaukee Mile. Hocevar, who has run four of the five ASA STARS events this season, finished fourth at Milwaukee, and currently sits 11th in ASA STARS National Tour points.
Other drivers with ties to the ASA National Tour who raced at Nashville included Grant Enfinger (13th) and current ASA STARS points leader Ty Majeski, who finished 31st.
