ASA STARS National Tour
American Speed Reborn: Son of Sauter
Oct 31, 2023
The inaugural ASA STARS National Tour championship has come down to two drivers – Seymour, WI’s Ty Majeski and Porter’s Lake, NS, CA’s Cole Butcher. The pair are separated by just eight points going into the Curb Records/Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers All American 400 Presented by US Tank and Cryogenic Equipment.
Let’s take a look at the tale of the tape between the Wisconsin and Canadian stars.

Majeski leads the ASA STARS National Tour in wins with three, while Butcher has one win at Anderson Speedway. He also leads Butcher in stage wins, stage points and laps led. Meanwhile, Butcher leads Majeski in top-10’s, race points, and in the hard charger standings. The two share the same amount of top-fives with six.
With race points, stage points, and bonus points coming from qualifying and leading laps, the points situation is anything but clear. Click here to read about just some of the possibilities come race time.
