SALEM, Ind. – Champion Racing Ass’n powered by JEGS officials have officially released the 2020 schedule for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour presented by Chevrolet Performance.
The 2020 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour schedule will consist of 14 races, 12 of those are point events, and two non-point special events.
Next year will be the 10th season of competition for the crate late model touring series sanctioned by Champion Racing Ass’n.
“We are really excited about the 2020 schedule with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour,” said Glenn Luckett, managing partner of CRA. “We have a great mix of events on the schedule, with some new high-profile events that will challenge our drivers throughout the season and provide some great racing for our fans!”
CRA will continue the Chase for the Championship format for determining a series champion for the 2020 season. The playoff format has produced more teams competing for a championship in every CRA division since CRA started using that format in 2017.
The 2020 racing season kicks off with the traditional non-points opener for both the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by JEGS and the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour, with CRA SpeedFest 2020 at Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, Ga., on Jan. 24-25.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour race will be a 125-lap, four-tire event, counting yellow flag laps up to lap 100. This event has traditionally attracted the best pro late model drivers from all around the country.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour will kick off its 2020-point season on April 25 at Flat Rock Speedway in Flat Rock, Mich. This will be the series’ first ever event at the quarter mile.
The series was scheduled to start its 2019 points season there last season, but weather forced a reschedule, then a cancellation of the rescheduled event.
The series will head to the famed Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville for the first of three events at that historic facility in 2020 on May 2. The ARCA/CRA Super Series will also be in action that weekend in Nashville.
At the end of the month, the series will head south to Bristol Motor Speedway as part of the fourth annual Short Track U.S. Nationals event on May 30. That event will be a 100-lap, $5,000-to-win event again in 2020.
The series will then return to Anderson (Ind.) Speedway on June 13; the track was added back to the series schedule in 2019 after racing there from 2011 through the 2016 season.
Fourth of July weekend will see the series visit Jennerstown Speedway for the first time and host the first series event in the state of Pennsylvania.
The series will have a 100-lap, $5,000-to-win feature in conjunction with a 200 lap, $20,000-to-win ARCA/CRA Super Series and CARS Tour combination event on July 4.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour schedule is then highlighted by a return visit to Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville for the famed CRA Masters of the Pros 150 on July 18, the first time this event has been contested at that track.
The series will then visit Baer Field Motorsports Park, located just south of Fort Wayne, Ind., on Aug. 1 for a 100-lap event.
Michigan will be up next with a visit of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour to Berlin Raceway for the tour’s only stop there in 2020. That event will once again be a combo points event for the ARCA/CRA Super Series, the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour and the Berlin Raceway super late models.
The series will stay in Michigan for a return to Birch Run Speedway for a 100-lap event on Aug. 29. This event will be the first Chase for the Championship event for the series.
A Labor Day tradition is up next as the series will head to the half-mile high banks of Winchester (Ind.) Speedway on Sept. 6 to kick off the famous World Stock Car Festival on Labor Day Weekend. That event will be the second race of the series Chase.
The series will then be the featured event at Fall Brawl 2020 at Lucas Oil Raceway on Sept. 20, the third event of the series Chase.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour will crown their 2020 tour champion at Winchester Speedway as part of the 49th annual Winchester 400 weekend on Friday, Oct. 9, in its second visit of the season to Winchester Speedway.
The series will make it’s third stop at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville to close out the 2020 season with a special non-points event, as part of the famed All American 400 weekend.
More details on the All American weekend event will be released at a later date.
