All-American 400 entry list features the elite of short track racing

This will be the first ‘Civil War on Wheels’ in two years

Already one of the crown jewels of Super Late Model racing, this weekend’s All-American 400 at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville features an anticipated entry list that reflects it.

Following three rainouts over the course of the past calendar year, the 2018 All-American never took place meaning that 2017 winner Donnie Wilson will enter the 2019 race as the defending winner. But there are no shortage of short track superstars capable of separating the Oklahoma native from a second Music City Guitar.

That includes cars from his own stable.

“We’re going to have three cars for the All-American and the Snowball Derby,” Wilson said over the summer during the 51 Super Select. “We’ve got Casey (Roderick) and Cole Butcher. I think everyone knows Nashville is a special place for me.

“I really enjoy racing up there and it’s something everyone who helps us out puts a lot of effort into.”

In addition to Roderick and Butcher, Wilson will have to fend off some of the toughest names in Super Late Model racing. That includes 2016 All-American 400 winner Bubba Pollard, two-time K&N Pro Series West champion Derek Thorn, three-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion Ty Majeski, 2018 Southern Super Series champion Stephen Nasse and Kyle Busch Motorsports prodigy Chandler Smith.

Connor Okresik, who made headlines for outdueling Kyle Busch in the 2018 edition of Speedfest, also impressed in this race back in 2017.

“I want redemption from last time we went there,” Okresik said. “Last time we went there, we had the sway bar break on us, and I want to run good there.”

The overall list reads like a who’s who of short track racing.

In addition to Roderick and the other national superstars, the list also contains six of the last seven Nashville Pro Late Model track champions — Michael House (2018), Cole Williams (2014, 2016), Willie Allen (2015) and Johnny Brazier (2012).

Open testing for the event begins on Friday, November 1 and runs through Sunday, November 3. In addition to the 400-lap marathon, there is local division racing on Saturday following practice and time trials for the Late Models.

The 400-lap Super Late Model portion will pay $22,000-to-win and $1,000-to-start. Both the Super Late and Pro Late races will take place on Sunday, November 3 with practice and qualifying scheduled for Saturday.

There will be a last chance race for both divisions, if necessary, if more than 36 cars are entered into the event. The event will be broadcast with multiple cameras and a broadcast team by Speed51.com. The Sunday stream can be purchased for $19.99.

The complete known entries for both divisions can be found below.
