'New Star' Races Return to Winchester 400 Weekend
Sep 26, 2023
Current ASA STARS National Tour points leader Ty Majeski has filed his entry for the 52nd Running of the Winchester 400 Presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel on October 13-15.
The Wisconsin driver has established himself as one of Super Late Model racing’s top drivers for the past decade, but the high-banked half-mile presents a completely different challenge to Majeski as he will be making his first-ever appearance at Winchester.
Majeski has three wins on the season at Madison, Milwaukee and WIR and holds a 63-point edge over Cole Butcher in the standings. He is coming off his worst finish of the season at Toledo after engine issues ended his race prematurely.
Even outside the ASA STARS National Tour, his results in the Super Late Model have been nothing short of spectacular. In just ten total Super Late Model starts in 2023, his 13th at Toledo has been his only finish outside the top-ten and one of just two outside the top-five.
Majeski also finds himself in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Playoffs, attempting to get into the final four. He could very well find himself going into the weekend of November 3-5 racing for a NASCAR Truck Series title at Phoenix Raceway and an ASA STARS National Tour championship at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.
More entries for the Winchester 400 will be released as it gets closer to race weekend.
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 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.
