The Short Track U.S. Nationals is set to bring many different classes of racing to Bristol Motor Speedway (TN) May 19-21, with Late Models, Modifieds, and Street Stocks each bringing their own brand of V8 thunder. But there will also be plenty of lightning on the concrete highbanks with 4 and 6 cylinder compacts set to zip around during the weekend under the banner of the Vore’s Compact Touring Series, and they may bring the biggest force of racecars on the weekend.


The Vore’s Compact Tour has its roots set in the Midwest, with the entry list being reflected with many drivers calling Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan home from the 114 to file entries. Indiana drivers Chris Jennings and Mark Mason who won the Vore’s Series and Vore’s ISO championships in 2016 are among those set to do battle. Entry blanks from Iowa and Wisconsin have also been received.


300x250 Early Bird SpecialPortions of the Northeast have drivers making the haul down with New England states, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island being represented. New York and Pennsylvania will also have a select group heading south as well.


Drivers native to the South from right near by in Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, and even West Virginia will all be on hand.


While Late Models have been the center of attention, rest assured Compact fans from all over will get the chance to see their favorite drivers in action as they will be front and center for the first day’s broadcast.


On Saturday, May 20, the Vore’s Compact Touring Series will stage both qualifying and feature racing which will be carried live on’s PPV broadcast. Fans can purchase a weekend video ticket for an early bird price of $44.99, now through May 19. There is also a Saturday only ticket for $24.99.
