ASA STARS National Tour
Watch Winchester 400 Weekend on Racing America
Oct 10, 2023
Current ASA STARS National Tour points runner-up Cole Butcher will be making his second appearance at the Winchester 400 this weekend.
The Canadian sits second in the series standings with two races left, 63 points behind Ty Majeski. Butcher has a win in the Redbud 400 at Anderson Speedway along with five top-fives and just one finish outside the top-ten. Additionally, his 126 stage points are the second-most in the series behind Majeski.
Away from the ASA STARS National Tour, he won his second-straight Oxford 250 in Maine back in August. He’s also won a CARS Tour Pro Late Model race at Hickory and two PASS National races at Hickory on the same day.
Butcher made his debut in the Winchester 400 last year, leading 79 laps and spending a majority of the race in the top-five before a freak occurrence knocked him out of the race. The left rear snout broke and sent the tire flying off the car in turn four before he hit the wall on lap 311. Still, he finished the race in ninth.
The ASA STARS National Tour heads to Winchester Speedway on Sunday, October 15 for the Winchester 400 Presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel. The race will also serve as the season finale for the ASA/CRA Super Series. Tickets can be purchased by calling the track office at (765)584-9701 during office hours.
The ASA STARS National Tour opened the ten race, six-state schedule at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on March 11. Jesse Love is the most recent winner, claiming the victory in Glass City 200 on September 16.

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.
