SALEM, Ind. – The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance Masters of the Pro’s 150 will include a couple of new twists this year.
For the first time, the event will take place at the famed Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tenn., and the event will have promotional sanctioning from the Show Me the Money Pro Late Model Series from Montgomery Motor Speedway.
“We are really looking forward to having the Masters of the Pro’s 150 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and working with Stan (Narrison) and the Show Me the Money Series he has developed at Montgomery Motor Speedway,” said R.J. Scott, Managing Partner of the Champion Racing Ass’n. “Nashville will be the perfect place for this event to be held, the track has tons of history and the city has become a destination place with all the great food and entertainment establishments! This event is going to be one racers and fans will not want to miss.”
Narrison is the general manager of Montgomery Motor Speedway, which oversees the Show Me the Money Series. He is equally enthusiastic for the Masters of the Pro’s event.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to work with CRA and Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and for our racers to be eligible for the Show Me the Money Series Provisionals,” said Narrison. “The only way to grow our industry is to work together with common goals and provide great venues and events for our racers. The Show Me the Money Series is one of the strongest in the country and this extra exposure for our racers is priceless. We are looking forward to 2020 and beyond.”
Previous winners of the Masters of the Pro’s include Chase Elliott, John Hunter Nemechek, Bubba Pollard, Anderson Bowen and Cole Williams. Pollard has won the last two editions of the event, which was most recently held at Memphis Int’l Raceway.
The 150-lap green flag event will pay a minimum $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start for the posted starting field, making it one of the highest paying pro/crate late model events in the country. In addition, the winner will be awarded a signature green jacket, similar to the one that is known for adorning the champion of golf’s Masters event.
The event will be an eight-tire max race, utilizing controlled cautions, with teams only allowed to change a max of two tires per yellow. There will be two provisional starting spots for the Show Me the Money Series for this year’s Masters of the Pro’s 150 in addition to the provisional starting spots for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour and the Nashville competitors.
