The expected entry list for the 52nd Running of the Winchester 400 Presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel has been released.
Leading off the list of entries is none other than defending Winchester 400 champion Stephen Nasse. Fresh off his first Super Late Model win of the year at Five Flags Speedway in September, the Florida driver heads to Winchester with Anthony Campi Racing for their second race together as Nasse searches for his third Winchester rifle.
The only other former winner entered is NASCAR national series driver Noah Gragson. He joins Rette Jones Racing for his third start of the year with the series and his first Winchester 400 appearance since his win in 2017.
ASA STARS National Tour points leader Ty Majeski is making his long-awaited debut in the Winchester 400 as he looks to close out on the inaugural series title. He is joined by championship competitors Cole Butcher and Gio Ruggiero, and past Winchester Speedway Super Late Model winners William Sawalich and Dalton Armstrong.
The ASA STARS National Tour heads to Winchester Speedway on Sunday, October 15 for the Winchester 400 Presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel. The race will also serve as the season finale for the ASA/CRA Super Series. Tickets can be purchased by calling the track office at (765)584-9701 during office hours.
The ASA STARS National Tour opened the ten race, six-state schedule at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on March 11. Jesse Love is the most recent winner, claiming the victory in Glass City 200 on September 16.

ASA STARS National Tour
The ASA STARS National Tour debuted in March 2023 for Super Late Model racing in America. Announced in October 2022, many of the best drivers in America will compete in the ten-race national tour with a minimum $100,000 point fund. The championship team will be guaranteed $25,000.
The ASA STARS National Tour 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.
The Team Construction Winner’s Circle program has been announced as a part of the ASA STARS National Tour for licensed drivers/teams with perfect attendance. The program provides additional financial incentives to those teams who support the series.
Track Enterprises, a racing promotions company based in Illinois, will operate the ASA STARS National Tour. It announced the acquisition of Champion Racing Association (CRA) in January 2022 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.
