Early All American 400 Entries Feature Talent from Coast to CoastScott Menlen
Nashville, TN (Friday, October 1, 2021) – Just a few days have passed since the Entry Form was released for the 37th Running of the US Tank All American 400 in Memory of Jillian Brown at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. Event organizers believe the 2021 event could be one of the most anticipated runnings of the All American 400 in quite some time. The early entry list shows that the October 31st race will already be stacked with talent from across the United States.
Among the early entries into this crown jewel event are drivers who have found a way to win at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway but have yet to punch their ticket into the record books as an All American 400 winner. Pinellas Park, Florida’s Stephen Nasse went to victory lane during the All American 100 last season in his Pro Late Model. The win gave Nasse his first signature guitar from Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway; now the template Late Model ace will attempt to grab another guitar at the end of the All American 400 Super Late Model race.
Also on the early entry list is Kannapolis, North Carolina driver, Matt Craig. In 2020, Craig grabbed the Rackley Roofing CRA Masters of the Pros 150 win, collecting $10,000 in the process, after a dominating performance. He also finished runner up earlier this season during the North/South Super Late Model Challenge 100 after he came up just short on running down event winner Carson Kvapil. Craig already has his number 54 Chevrolet entered for this season’s All American 400.
Other early entries include ARCA Menards Series driver, Derek Griffith, ARCA Menards Series East driver Sammy Smith, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event winner at Bristol Motor Speedway, Chandler Smith.
Buddy Shepherd (Oregon) and Austin Thom (California) represent the west coast drivers while Cole Butcher’s entry comes from the far northeast, beyond the board. Busher, the number 53 Toyota driver, travels south to Nashville from Hantsport, Nova Scotia, Canada. Traveling north to Nashville is Hunter Robbins in his familiar number 18. Robbins joins Stephen Nasse as the two current Florida drivers entered in the All American 400.
Other well-known drivers that will be a part of the US Tank All American 400 Race Weekend in Memory of Jillian Brown include former NASCAR Cup Series drivers, Kenny Wallace and Ken Schrader. The veteran competitors will battle it out during Saturday’s Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stock event.
Entries continue to roll in for the 37th Running of the All American 400 on Sunday, October 31st at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. Tickets are available now at www.NashvilleFairgroundsSpeedway.Racing or by calling the box office at (615) 254-1986.
