NASHVILLE, TN — It’s almost go time for the much anticipated return of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and the Southern Super Series Late Models to Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. The event is scheduled for this Saturday, April 11 at the historic facility.


The event is shaping up to be huge with in upwards of 30 ARCA cars entered for the Troop Aid 200 presented by Federated Auto Parts and Crosley Brands. Point leader, Grant Enfinger leads the charge, while Josh Williams, Thomas Praytor, Kyle Weatherman, Clay Greenfield, Brandon Jones, Bo LeMastus, Matt Tifft, Will Kimmel, Austin Wayne Self, Bobby Hamilton, Jr. and a host of others will try to knock him off his pedestal. It will be the third event of the season for the series and the first visit to the Fairgrounds since David Green took the checkered flag in 1992.


The Southern Super Series Federated Auto Parts 100 presented by Crosley Brands and Crane Cams should also be outstanding. It is the only Super Late Model event scheduled at the track this season and some big names are coming out to take the guitar. Last year’s All American 400 winner and Snowball Derby champion, John Hunter Nemechek leads the list of competitors for the 100 lap grind. 2001 AA400 winner, Chuck Barnes, Jr. has also entered the event along with the likes of Bubba Pollard, Donnie Wilson, Casey Roderick, Harrison Burton, Anderson Bowen, Casey Smith, Augie Grill, Kyle Grisson, Daniel Hemric, and a number of others.
