Fifty entries were received from drivers looking to compete in the 19th Annual All American 400, which this year will run as a mid-week special featuring two-200 lap main events for the Super Late Model Tour and the Pro Late Models.
Among the entries received are three-time All American 400 Champion Chuck Chamblee, 2003 winner and newly crowned 2016 ASRS Super Late Model Tour Champion Matt Vaade, and Jim Foose, who is entered in his 14th All American 400.
“As one of the longest running online races, this event has seen many formats and several changes over the years” said ASRS President Jim Foose. “This year’s line up is one of the most competitive I have seen in my 14 years of racing in it, it’s a prestigious race and one that every short track iracer wants to win, it’s like the Daytona 500 for us, when you win the race you don’t become just a winner, you become a champion!”
“There’s been much discussion of the hosting track for this event each year, and I would like nothing more than to return it to Nashville in 2017 for the 20th running, but that depends on many factors, some of which are out of my control” Foose continued. “USA International has been a great host for the race and gives us that feel of the glory days at Nashville, it’s just a bit bigger and really suits these cars. No other track on the iRacing service has that feel for us”.
