Salem, IN -- The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance $10,000-to-win Masters of the Pro’s 150 will take a couple of new twist for the 2020 version of the event. For the first time ever, the event will take place at the famed Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tennessee and the event will have promotional sanctioning from the Show Me the Money Pro Late Model Series from Montgomery Motor Speedway.
“We are really looking forward to having the Masters of the Pro’s 150 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and working with Stan (Narrison) and the Show Me the Money Series he has developed at Montgomery Motor Speedway,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. “Nashville will be the perfect place for this event to be held, the track has tons of history and the city has become a destination place with all the great food and entertainment establishments! This event is going to be one racers and fans will not want to miss!”
Narrison is the General Manager of Montgomery Motor Speedway, which oversees the Show Me the Money Series. He is equally enthusiastic for the Masters of the Pro’s event.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to work with CRA and Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and for our racers to be eligible for the Show Me the Money Series Provisionals,” Narrison said. “The only way to grow our industry is to work together with common goals and provide great venues and events for our racers. The Show Me the Money Series is one of the strongest in the country and this extra exposure for our racers is priceless. We are looking forward to 2020 and beyond!”
2020 will be the eighth edition of the Masters of the Pro’s, previous winners include NASCAR Cup Series competitor Chase Elliott in 2013, Anderson Bowen in 2014, NASCAR Cup Series driver John Hunter Nemechek in 2015 and 2016, and Cole Williams in 2017; all those events were held at Lebanon I-44 Speedway. Bubba Pollard won the event in 2018 when it was held at Birch Run Speedway and again in 2019 when it was held at Memphis International Raceway.
The 150-lap green flag event will pay a minimum $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start for the posted starting field, making it one of the highest paying Pro/Crate Late Model events in the country. In addition, the winner will be awarded a signature green jacket, similar to the one that is known for adorning the champion of golf’s Masters event. The event will be an eight-tire max race, utilizing controlled cautions, with teams only allowed to change a max of two tires per yellow. There will be two provisional starting spots for the Show Me the Money Series for this year’s Masters of the Pro’s 150 in addition to the provisional starting spots for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour and the Nashville competitors.
There will be a $500 cash bonus to the highest finishing driver in the Masters of the Pro’s 150 who has never raced in the Masters of the Pro’s event prior to 2020. There will be a $1,000 cash bonus to the highest finisher that has raced with the JEGS/CRA All-Star Tour prior to that event in 2020 and a $1,000 cash bonus to the highest finisher that has not raced with the JEGS/CRA All-Star Tour in 2020 prior to that event.
The Show Me the Money Series at Montgomery Motor Speedway is a six-event series that begins with the famed Alabama 200 “Hunt for the BEAR” on Saturday, March 7. That event will pay $7,000 to win and will feature controlled cautions. More information on that series and the Alabama 200 is available at www.montgomerymotorspeedway.org.
