Garcia Capitalizes Late For North/South SLM Challenge Win

The stars of the ASA CRA Super Series and the ASA Southern Super Series joined forces for the North/South Super Late Model Challenge Sunday afternoon.  The country’s top Super Late Model drivers took on the historic oval in a tune-up for November’s ASA STARS National Tour finale at the All American 400.

It appeared that 2019 track champion Jackson Boone was on his way to his first-career Super Late Model win when disaster struck.  The radiator hose on the No.7 blew while Boone was leading with eight laps to go, ending his race just short of victory.

Boone’s misfortune would be Jake Garcia lucky break – the 18 year old inherited the lead and held on at the final restart to take the win.  It was just the second-career Super Late Model win for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series rookie, and first of any kind at Nashville.

It would not be all bad for Boone, who pulled double-duty in the Super and Pro Late Models.  He scored his third-consecutive Pro Late Model victory at Nashville with a late-race pass on Hunter Wright.  Since a DNF on opening night, Boone now has three wins and a second to his credit, and continues to close the gap on points leader Dylan Fetcho.

Jeremy Burns becomes the third winner in three Big Machine Vodka Spiked Coolers Super Truck races with his victory on Sunday.  Kevin Rollins (Pro/Master) and Michael Crafton (Semi-Pro/Young Lion) took home United States Air Force Legends wins, while Colt Johnson won the Murfreesboro Fence Bandolero feature.

Racing returns to the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Saturday, July 29 with the first-ever appearance of the 500 Sprint Car Tour to the high banks, co-headlined with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour.  Also in action are the Limited Late Models, Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, Pest Doctor Front Runners, USAF Legends, and Murfreesboro Fence Bandoleros.
