With less than two months remaining until the 35th Annual All American 400 at the historic Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, the opportunities for Super Late Model teams to save some money continue to grow. In a partnership between Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville and the Short Track Alliance (STA), every Super Late Model team that enters the race will receive one free pit pass for the All American 400 weekend Friday, November 1 to Sunday, November 3.
Entry forms for the All American 400 are available now and you can get yours by clicking here. Teams must enter by October 1 to be eligible for the free pit pass.
“It is very important to me to make sure the racers know they are appreciated,” said Claire Formosa, Vice President of Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. “I feel as though there should always be some type of incentives to help draw in racers. They are the show and the lifeline to to short track racing. We are excited about all the things to come for the All American 400 this year!”
“Claire and the staff and Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville recognizes what needs to happen to re-energize the Short Track industry and is willing to make some things happen,” said Bob Dillner, Board Member for the Short Track Alliance. “This a positive step. Promoters, racers and business leaders need to work together to make the entire show even more electric than it is. This will hopefully allow the teams that enter early enough an opportunity to save some money.”
Additionally, teams that participated in the rained out All American 400 weekend in November 2018 or submitted an entry for the canceled April 2019 make-up and did not receive a refund, your entry fee will be waived. But you must submit a fresh entry form, as tire selection will be determined on the order the new entry form is received.
The anticipation for the All American 400 is at the highest it has been in years, with race teams eager to prove their mettle after the two aforementioned rain outs in the past year at Nashville. The entry list, which already features former champions and many of Super Late Model racing’s biggest stars, is expected to be released soon.
For the fans, the All American 400 is also set to be one of the most affordable tickets for a marquee short track race all season long. Two day general admission tickets for both Saturday and Sunday, November 2 and 3, are going for amazing price of just $20. There is also a pre-sale for Sunday only tickets which are only $12. These are prices that harken back to the ole days of racing.
Plus, fans that saved their Sunday ticket stubs for the November 2018 All American 400 date will receive Sunday tickets for this coming November free of charge. Tickets purchased for the April 2019 date will also be honored for Sunday tickets free of charge.
If you would like to exchange your ticket to credit towards a two-day ticket or pre-sale ticket so you can avoid lines please mail your ticket to: PO BOX 101552 Nashville, TN 37224 – Attn: AA400 Ticket Sales.
