The All-American 400 is quickly becoming The Championship Race of the 2020 Super Late Model season.
One day after the Southern Super Series opted to make the November 1 race at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway its points-paying championship race, the CARS Tour has decided to follow suit. The All-American 400 is a co-sanctioned race from the Southern Super Series, CARS Tour, Midwest and Champion Racing Association Super Series.
It was originally scheduled as a non-points race for all four regional touring divisions.
Since then, the Southern Super Series championship race at Gresham Motorsports Park has been canceled as has the CARS Tour season-ending doubleheader at South Boston Speedway in Virginia on September 19.
The CRA Super Series championship will still be decided at the Winchester 400 on October 11.
Meanwhile, the CARS Tour Super Late Model – Late Model Stock doubleheader will move from South Boston Speedway to Florence Motor Speedway in South Carolina on Oct. 3.
“While we are disappointed that we cannot return to South Boston in 2020, we are excited to bring the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour to Florence for the first time,” said CARS Tour President Jack McNelly. “Steve Zacharias and his team have worked incredibly hard in their first few months at Florence Motor Speedway and we look forward to bringing both of our series there at the start of October.”
The All-American 400 is already one of the crown jewels in Super Late Model racing and the points will entice a few extra entrants from those who had not already planned to attend.
“The opportunity to determine a champion at the All-American 400 will be special for all of us at the CARS Tour,” said McNelly. “The All-American 400 is a classic of the American short track schedule, and with three different series competing there that weekend, this year’s race should be one of the most competitive in its nearly 40-year history.”
The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour’s COVID-19 policies will continue to be in effect for both races at Florence and Nashville. CARS Tour drivers and teams will be temperature screened before entering both tracks, and masks will be required on all spotters and strongly recommended in the infield. Masks will also be required for all Victory Lane celebrations.
