Inaugural ASA Winner Roderick Headlines Joe Shear Classic

Casey Roderick headlines the stellar list of drivers entered for the Joe Shear Classic next Sunday at Wisconsin’s Madison Int’l Speedway.

The Pulaski, Miss., driver — who won the inaugural ASA STARS National Tour event at Five Flags back on March 11 — is one of 36 drivers to have filed entries for round two of the new pavement super late model series.

By virtue of his recent win in Pensacola, Roderick will come to Madison as the series points leader on May 7. In addition to claiming the checkered flag at the conclusion of the Sunshine State 200, Roderick also earned points for winning two stages and bonus points for leading the most laps.

The ASA STARS National Tour is offering a $100,000 point fund — with $25,000 going to the championship team and an additional $5,000 bonus to the champion driver.

The Joe Shear Classic will be Roderick’s third appearance in Wisconsin. He is a former champion of the ASA Southern Super Series and recently won the World Series of Asphalt championship at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway during Speedweeks in February.

Joining Roderick on the entry list include past Joe Shear Classic winners Bubba Pollard, Andrew Morrissey, Ty Majeski, Dan Fredrickson Johnny Sauter and Austin Nason. 

The Joe Shear Classic 200 will mark second event on the inaugural ASA STARS National Tour schedule.
