The All American 400 Returns to Nashville

1 post in this topic

The Southern Superstars Racing League and Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville have partnered to maintain continuity of the long-running All American 400 sim racing event. Although the 2011 event, which was sanctioned by the American Sim Racing Series was the first to not be held at the Fairgrounds Speedway, the SSRL's league admin Chuck Chamblee and Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville president Tony Formosa agreed that the race belongs in Nashville and that it should come back to Nashville.

With that being said, we are proud to announce that the All American 400 sim race will be returning home, to the Fairgrounds Speedway in 2012 for the 15th annual spectacular. The event will be held on Saturday night, October 27th, with round one qualifying to be held on Saturday, October 20th. The event will be broadcast live on RLM-TV. Round one qualifying may be broadcast live, as well if we can obtain some additional sponsorship money.

Round one qualifying on the 20th will be a spectacle in itself, with each driver taking their two timed laps while their competitors sit and watch, awaiting their turn on the .596 high-banked speedway. The starting field will be 20 drivers. Only the fastest 16 drivers in round one qualifying will lock into the All American 400, with everyone else having to race their way in by competing in a special last-chance race on the 27th, where only the top four finishers will advance to the 400. There will be no provisionals for the All American 400 this year.

Registration will be required for the All American 400, with an entry fee of $5.00 required at the time of registration. However, the SSRL will be refunding 80% of a drivers entry fee, upon request if that driver doesn't start the 400. Requests for refunds must be made within 48 hours of the conclusion of the event.

"There's two reasons why we're requiring an entry fee for this years event," stated SSRL president Chuck Chambee. "One is, we want to take certain measures to make sure that everyone that starts thie race takes it with a level of seriousness. The second reason is that we need to recoup some of the fees that we have to pay for the race broadcast on RLM-TV."
