NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The All-American 400, which has been held at Fairgrounds Speedway in 1981, will officially become a pro late model event this year.
The race, which last year was co-sanctioned by the Southern Super Series and the ARCA/CRA Super Series, will be a 300-lap event. The event was scheduled to be the Southern Super Series season finale, but is no longer a part of the series schedule. According to a statement on the Fairgrounds Speedway website, the decision stems from the need for affordable opportunities racers and fans.
“Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville looks forward to hosting a successful All American 400, asking for the continued support of the competitors and race fans all across the country,” said Fairgrounds Speedway President Tony Formosa Jr. in a statement on the speedway website. “The All American 400 continues to be a must see premier event bringing many fans to our great city. Music City USA is a prime location as 50 percent of the population of the USA is within a 500 mile driving radius.
“The staff and management of Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville have enjoyed working with the staff and management of the Southern Super Series and wish them continued success,” said Formosa.
Chase Elliott is the defending winner of the All-American 400.
