ASA STARS National Tour
Championship Contenders, ASA Regional Champions Among Early Nashville Entries
Oct 19, 2023
Luke Fenhaus only has two starts at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, but both have been nothing short of phenomenal.
The Wisconsin native won his first-career ARCA Menards Series East race at the historic 5/8ths back in May, leading just the final two laps after taking the lead from William Sawalich on a green-white-checkered restart. His first start at Nashville was just as impressive, starting on the pole for the 2022 All American 400 and crossing the finish line second after a late-race showdown with eventual winner Stephen Nasse.
However, it was all for naught. Fenhaus was disqualified in post-race tech due to an ignition box issue, relegating him to last place in the 37-car field.
His 2023 focus has been on the ARCA Menards Series East, where he was runner-up in points with two wins, including his first ARCA National victory at Iowa Speedway. On the Super Late Model side, he is undefeated in the Alive For Five Series and will have an opportunity to close out the series title this weekend at Dells Raceway Park.
The All American 400 will be his fourth start of the season with the ASA STARS National Tour. While it was a struggle in his first two starts at Madison and Milwaukee, he rebounded at the Gandrud Auto Group 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway with a second-place finish. He has two other top-five finishes at State Park Speedway and Dells.
The ASA STARS National Tour heads to Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Sunday, November 5 for the season finale, the All American 400. Special discounted three-day tickets are available here.
The ASA STARS National Tour opened the ten race, six-state schedule at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on March 11. Gio Ruggiero is the most recent winner, claiming the victory in the Winchester 400 on October 15.

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.
