Entries for the Curb Records/Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers All American 400 Presented by US Tank and Cryogenics at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway are starting to roll in. The inaugural ASA STARS National Tour champion will be crowned on the weekend of November 3-5.
The two frontrunners for the series title have entered for the race. Unofficially, Ty Majeski’s 93 point lead he had after the Gandrud Auto Group 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway is now down to just eight after two straight DNF’s. Redbud 400 winner Cole Butcher has finished second in each of the past two races and now enters Nashville with a shot at the series title.
Recently-crowned ASA Midwest Tour champion Gabe Sommers has entered the All American 400, as well as ASA/CRA Super Series and ASA Southern Super Series champion Gio Ruggiero. Ruggiero is fresh off a Winchester 400 win on Sunday afternoon.
Defending All American 400 winner Stephen Nasse will be back looking to add a second guitar, along with 2021 race winner Matt Craig. Local favorites Jackson Boone and Willie Allen will look to keep the All American 400 winner title in the Nashville area.
The full entry list will be released as it gets closer to All American 400 weekend.
The ASA STARS National Tour heads to Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Sunday, November 5 for the season finale at the Curb Records/Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers All American 400 Presented by US Tank and Cryogenics. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

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.
