Open Wheel Stars Ready For Nashville Event Rockin' & Racin' This Friday & Saturday, April 8/9 The much anticipated Rockin' & Racin' show at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville is now just days away and the entry lists are filled with talented stars from young to old and amateur to professional. On the card are the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, the CRA Super Series powered by JEGS, and the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco. The two-day show also includes a Friday night concert with country music artists, Colt Ford and Trent Tomlinson. While there will be plenty of drivers to watch, many eyes will be on a mix of drivers that include some recent and former open wheel stars. Open wheel star and Kyle Busch Motorsports driver, Christopher Bell, from Norman, OK, now competes on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tour but will be driving the teams Super Late Model in the Music City. Bell, a young open wheel star with many successes in USAC, POWRi, and other sprint and midget type sanctions has been blazing fast in the truck series this year but hasn't had good luck on his side to garner top finishes. Bell is one of the favorites going into this weekend's Team Construction North-South Super Late Model challenge. Kevin Thomas, Jr., who has been an open wheel star in USAC Sprints and Midgets will be running a Cunningham Motorsports entry at Nashville in the Music City 200. Thomas, now from Avon, IN, has over ten career USAC wins and has finishes of 5th or better in national points. Galesburg, IL driver AJ Fike is also heading to the Music City to compete with ARCA. Fike, the 1999 USAC Midget rookie of the year, has raced just about everything over the years, including events in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the Xfinity Series. Fike won last season's ARCA event at Springfield. Mitchell, IN native, Chase Briscoe, another young sprint car and midget star, has only made a limited number of starts on the ARCA tour but has had good success. Briscoe will be piloting a Cunningham Motorsports Ford in this weekend's event. Briscoe has had top ten finishes in all three of his ARCA starts.
