ASA STARS National Tour
Jesse Love Finds Toledo Victory Lane in Glass City 200
Sep 17, 2023
The ASA STARS National Tour returns to action on Sunday, October 15 at Winchester Speedway for the 52nd running of the Winchester 400. The entry blank for one of Super Late Model racing’s biggest races is now available.
The series will get just under a month off between Toledo and Winchester, with series championships being decided for the ASA Southern Super Series and ASA Midwest Tour in that time. The Winchester 400 will once again decide the 2023 ASA/CRA Super Series champion.
The Winchester 400 was first contested in 1970, a race won by Dave Sorg. Bob Senneker has the most Winchester 400 wins with seven, while other drivers like Mike Eddy, Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, Butch Miller, Gary St.Amant, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Erik Jones and Noah Gragson have also claimed wins. Stephen Nasse is the defending Winchester 400 winner.
More ASA-sanctioned races have been held at Winchester than at any other tracks. A total of 51 ASA races were held at the half-mile from 1973 to the final ASA-sanctioned Winchester 400 in 2002.
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 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.
