North/South SLM Challenge Tonight on MAVTV

Speed51’s Short Track America returns Wednesday night on MAVTV with a brand-new episode premiering at 7 p.m. Eastern, featuring one of the historic venues in short track racing and some of the best Super Late Model racers in the country.

 

The North/South Super Late Model Challenge takes place each year at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville (TN), pitting drivers from the ARCA/CRA Super Series, CARS Super Late Model Tour and Southern Super Series against each other for a coveted guitar trophy.

 

33 of the best Super Late Model racers in the country take the green flag for the North/South Super Late Model Challenge, including the defending champions of all three sanctioning bodies involved in the event.  ARCA/CRA Super Series champion Josh Brock, CARS Tour title holder Jared Fryar and Southern Super Series defending champion Casey Roderick are in the field, along with JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour champion Jack Dossey, III. and 2018 PASS South Champion Matt Craig.

 

The field also includes a big race winner seen earlier this year on Short Track America, with CRA SpeedFest winner Connor Okrzesik on the grid.  Rattler 250 winner Giovanni Bromante, former All American 400 winner Donnie Wilson, former ARCA/CRA Super Series champion Johnny VanDoorn, the always-exciting Stephen Nasse, defending Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville champion Michael House and more are also in the field.

 

They will do battle on the 0.596-mile Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville high-banked oval, the site of the annual All American 400.  With a racing history dating back to the dawn of the 20th century and the current paved layout first constructed in 1957, there is a long history of exciting races at the Fairgrounds.

 

As always, fans can catch this episode for the first time at 7 p.m. Eastern on MAVTV.  There will also be a re-airing at 10 p.m. Eastern, with further airings at later dates.  Check your local listings and mavtv.com for more details.
