(CLEVELAND, OH) The Online All American 400 is returning to its roots for the 23rd Annual Online All American 400 in 2020.
The longest running online race is returning to a Saturday night main event, moving from a mid-week event to a weekend night. The move to a Saturday night will allow the event to return to it’s traditional 400 lap main event, which will feature Super Late Models battling for 400 laps. Officials are optimistic that the event will return to the Fairgrounds Nashville Speedway in 2020, as a recent iRacing scan occurred at the ⅝ mile speedplant.
The tentative date for the 23rd Annual Online All American 400 is Saturday, November 14th, 2020, with qualifying and preliminary races on Friday, November 13th. Additional races leading up to the 400 lap Super Late Model extravaganza will be announced at a later time.
“Returning to the 400 lap format along with a good possibility of staging the race at it’s home for so many years is really driving us to make these changes happen for the 2020 event, the 23rd Annual Online All American 400” said Online All American 400 Promoter Jim Foose. “We believe this event should get back to the tradition of being a long race, a challenge for the drivers and bring back a bit of the spectacle that this event really is for online racing”.
Broadcasting for the 23rd Annual Online All American 400 is “on the table” according to Foose. “Our team tried to find a broadcast partner for the 2019 event, but with many leagues still running it became very difficult to find one broadcaster to cover both events, that’s another reason we are moving to Saturday night in 2020, it should give us a better opportunity to get the race broadcasted, although we are unsure if any of the support races will be a part of that broadcast package”.
