Notes: This year’s North/South Super Late Model challenge will consist of a single 100-lap race putting the best from the Southern Super Series (South) against the ARCA/CRA Super Series (North).  The field includes plenty of star power with SLM ace Bubba Pollard and two-time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin on the pre-entry list.  Defending race winner and defending SSS champion Donnie Wilson will lead the southern contingent, while 2016 CRA championship runner-up and Redbud 300 winner Dalton Armstrong leads the northern contingent. Veteran racer Dennis Schoenfeld will race his asphalt SLM for the first time since being injured in a car accident last fall. 2008 All American 400 winner Brian Campbell will make the trip south to Nashville eyeing his first win of 2017. Travis Braden, the 2016 Winchester 400 winner, is also seeking the big win on Saturday afternoon.
