One of the nation’s most prestigious and exciting Late Model races, the All American 400, will return to its roots as a Super Late Model race this weekend at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville (TN). With the excitement level high throughout the short track racing community, Speed51.com and Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville announced Tuesday that the 32nd annual All American 400 will be broadcast live to race fans worldwide on Speed 51 TV.
“For the last several years we have watched many races on Speed 51 pay-per-view broadcasts, including races the week of the Snowball Derby. We are very excited this year to join the group of tracks who use Speed51.com,” said Claire Formosa, Vice President of Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. “We feel that it will be a huge marketing tool to build for next year’s All-American 400.
“We have a great working relationship already with Speed 51 and we are very proud to take that partnership to the next level by allowing Bob Dillner and his team to broadcast the race. We hope that people all across the country who are unable to make it join in and watch the excitement as the race returns to its original roots this year for the first time in over 20 years.”
The agreement reached between Speed51.com and FGS officials will allow race fans to watch both days of racing on October 1-2.
On Saturday, October 1, the Super Late Models and Pro Late Models will qualify for Sunday’s main events with only the top 28 cars locking in on time. The season finale for all seven local divisions including the Legends, Pro-Mods, Front Runners, Pure Stocks, Super Streets, Sportsman and a $3,000-to-win Limited Late Model race will also take place.
Four-hundred laps of Super Late Model racing, featuring some of the biggest names in short track racing, will take place on Sunday, October 2. Pro Late Models will also be on the schedule for one of their biggest races of the year, a 100-lap affair around the Tennessee oval.
“The Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville has an incredible amount of history within the realm of short track racing in America and it’s exciting to see the All-American 400 return to a Super Late Model event,” said Mark Keeler, Operations Manager for speed51.com. “If fans cannot make it to the event, we will have multiple cameras to help showcase the All-American 400 and hopefully make someone who is watching want to attend the event next year.”
A live two-day video ticket can be purchased for just $37.99. Race fans can purchase a live video ticket for Sunday’s race only for $27.99. Saturday’s racing action can be purchased separately for $15.99.
