Visit ASA STARS National Tour Booth at CARS Racing Show

Macon, IL (December 30, 2022) – The CARS Racing Show in North Carolina has become a winter tradition for racers and fans surrounding the Tar Heel State.  This year attendees can visit the ASA National Tour booth to receive more information regarding its national pavement Super Late Model Series in 2023.

The CARS Racing Show will take place on Friday and Saturday, January 6-7, 2023 at the Hickory Metro Convention Center in Hickory, NC.  Joe Balash, Director of Racing Operations for the series and other officials will be in attendance.

“The Carolinas are an important area for the ASA STARS National Tour as many of our competitors are based there,” said Balash.  “We look forward to seeing teams to discuss anything that they have questions about.  We also have a couple of races nearby this year so this is a perfect fit for us to get the word out about those events to the racing community in the area.”

The state of North Carolina will host two ASA STARS National Tour races in the month of May.  On Tuesday, May 16, North Wilkesboro Speedway will host the inaugural series during its NASCAR All-Star Race week.

Just more than a week later, ASA STARS will hold an event at the famed Hickory Motor Speedway during a busy race week that includes the NASCAR Cup Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway and open-wheel racing at Millbridge Speedway in Salisbury, NC.

The CARS Racing Show is at the Hickory Metro Convention Center at 1960 13th Ave SE in Hickory, NC on Friday and Saturday, January 6-7..  The site is just down the road from the Hickory Motor Speedway and is also near the Hickory Furniture Mart.

The ASA STARS National Tour will open the 10-race, six-state tour at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on Saturday, March 11, 2023.  The race will be 200-laps in distance.  Tickets will go on sale for the inaugural event on Tuesday, January 10.

ASA STARS National Tour

The ASA STARS National Tour will debut in 2023 for Super Late Model racing in America.  Announced in October, many of the best drivers in America are expected to compete in the 10-race national tour with a minimum $100,000 point fund. The championship team will be guaranteed $25,000.

The national series is made up of three races from each of the regional pavement Super Late Model Series under the Track Enterprises banner; the ASA CRA Super Series, the ASA Midwest Tour and the ASA Southern Super Series.

A Winner’s Circle program will also be part of the ASA National Tour for licensed drivers/teams with perfect attendance.  The program details will be announced at a later date, but it will be in the same vein as ASA utilized in its heyday.

Track Enterprises, a Racing Promotions Company based in Illinois, will operate the ASA STARS National Tour.  It announced the acquisition of the CRA sanctioning body in January and followed that up with the purchase of the Midwest Tour in July. In October, Track Enterprises President, Bob Sargent announced a partnership with the Southern Super Series which set the table for the formation of the ASA STARS National Tour.
