Officials from Track Enterprises have announced that discount advance tickets are now on sale for the Saturday, April 8 event at Fairgrounds Speedway, in Nashville, TN, featuring some of the best racers across the nation. In addition to the Music City 200 presented by Jive for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, the Southern Super Series and ARCA/CRA Super Series Late Models will be going head-to-head in the North/South Shootout 100 presented by Team Construction.

2017 will mark the third season in a row for the ARCA Racing Series visit to the Music City. ARCA champion Grant Enfinger claimed victory back in 2015, while Josh Williams won the elusive guitar one year ago. Each year, the race has seen over 30 competitors racing in the 200 lap event, with last year’s race featuring drivers from over 15 different states and two countries. ARCA has a diverse schedule which takes drivers to short tracks, super speedways, intermediate tracks, road courses, and even dirt facilities.
This year’s event will be the second year in a row for the Southern Super Series and Champion Racing Association combo race. In 2015, the Super Late Model portion was a Southern Super Series sanctioned event which saw Daniel Hemric, who is now running for NASCAR Xfinity Rookie Of The Year, best a field of 25 other competitors. Last year, CRA was brought into the mix for a North-South shootout. The field saw a jump to 35 of the best short track racers in the US, with Donnie Wilson winning the top prize over Steven Wallace.
This year’s event will see trailer parking plus practice for the Super Late Models on Friday, April 7. The pits will open at 1:00with practice running from 4:00-7:00.
