It’s an exciting week for Wauters MotorSports and driver Mason Mingus. They return to Masons hometown to race in the All American 400 at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, TN. This is one of the team’s favorite races of the year and especially for Mason coming home to race in his backyard. Talking with Mason here is what he said about this weekend’s race.
“I always love being able to race close to home at the fairgrounds but especially at the All American 400. This race has a great history and I would mean a lot to me to get a win there. I feel like we have a pretty good car for this race, we ran the spring race with Richie as well and I felt like we had a great car. Richie always brings great cars and I have a lot of laps there so hopefully we can put those things together and pick up a good finish.”
