Nashville, TN – The next event of the 2023 season for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance is Saturday at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway for the JEGS High Performance 100. The race is the first JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour sanctioned event at Nashville this season, however, the Pro Late Model division runs regularly at the historic 5/8ths mile oval known as America’s Favorite Short Track.
So far this season, a different driver has gone to victory lane at every sanctioned event going back to January at Crisp Motorsports Park where Augie Grill kicked off the season. Since then, Championship Points Leader, Chase Burda grabbed his first career win at Birch Run Speedway in May, with Corey Deuser going to victory lane at Salem Speedway, Kyle Crump won at Owosso, and Ethan Stadniczuk the series’ latest winner at Birch Run Speedway. The JEGS Tour regulars will go head-to-head with the championship contenders of Nashville on Saturday.
Former Track Champion, Dylan Fetcho grabbed the opening night win before Hunter Wright found victory lane on night number two. Another former Pro Late Model Champion, Jackson Boone picked up the win during the Music City 100 in May, he backed it up with another win in June before winning again on July 2nd during the North/South Super Late Model Challenge weekend. Despite his three wins, Boone sits third in the points standings behind Wright and Fetcho.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour history at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway is relatively new, with the first sanctioned event being held in July of 2020 with the Masters of the Pros. Matt Craig grabbed the win. The JEGS Tour also began sanctioning the All American 100 at the end of the season. Other JEGS Pro Late Model winners at Nashville include Stephen Nasse, Cody Coughlin, Willie Allen (2), Dylan Fetcho, and Jake Bollman.
Drivers to watch on Saturday include the current points leader for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour, Chase Burda. The 18-year-old has found his rhythm in template late model racing this season and is hungry for another win. Corey Deuser, who won at Salem, has been a regular at Nashville in 2023. He’ll look for his first win at the Speedway this season. The three winners at the speedway this season will be on hand as well, including Boone, Fetcho, and Wright.
