A Late Model Stock Car Renaissance

When the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour announced that the quartet of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Burton, Kevin Harvick and Justin Marks had purchased the series, it was viewed by many as the dawning of a new era in short-track racing. In addition, Earnhardt’s JR Motorsports team has fielded late model stock entries in both the CARS Tour and the NASCAR weekly series for years with great success. NASCAR Xfinity Series star Josh Berry won both the 2017 CARS Tour late model stock championship and the 2020 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series national title with the team. In 2015, the CARS Tour replaced Pro Cup with a late model stock and super late model division. Both the CARS Tour and weekly late model stock racing have helped propel drivers such as Berry, Ty Gibbs, Sam Mayer, Tyler Ankrum and others to the national stage.
