Naples, ME — The twenty eight races that make up the two Pro All Stars Series (PASS) super late model schedules all carry a healthy purse for the East’s fastest full fendered race cars, but four dates stand out with added cash incentives to take that checkered flag first.
The first big one will go green on Saturday July 19th at Orange County Speedway. The beautiful Rougemont North Carolina track that bills itself as America’s fastest 3/8th mile will host the Southern Sizzler 200 and there’s a cool ten grand on the line for the winner. Expect a huge field for this race as The Sizzler is also round two of the four race PASS National Championship Series. The series kicked off on March 22nd at Hickory (NC) Motor Speedway with the 3rd annual Easter Bunny 150, where Corey Williams started his season off right with a victory.
And if that isn’t enough to get your attention, the winner’s share of the purse triples on Sunday August 17th for the PASS North Toyota Tundra 250 at Maine’s center of speed, Wiscasset Raceway. There’s a $30,000.00 check waiting for the winner of the big show. Williams’ Easter Bunny earned him a guaranteed starting spot for the 250, and he’ll be racing just down the road a piece from his home town of Boothbay Maine. Johnny Clark also has a guaranteed spot from his May 18th win in the Ray Haskell Ford 125 at Wiscasset.
The PASS 400 weekend at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (Scarborough ME) has become an autumn tradition for race fans from all over the Northeast. Big car counts, all three PASS North divisions and non stop racing highlight this multi-day event, and this year the September 21st PASS North Super Late Model feature will also be the third leg in the chase for the first PASS National Championship. $10,000.00 is on the line for the race winner, and you can expect a number of PASS South racers to take the drive up I-95 for this one.
PASS South is back at SoBo in 2008! – The legendary South Boston (VA) Speedway will host the Mason-Dixon 500 on Saturday October 25th. The 2008 PASS South super late model champion will be crowned that day, and you can be sure that a slew of PASS North racers will make the trip to South Boston and take a crack at the $10,000.00 winner’s share of the purse. The Mason Dixon 500 is a twin bill featuring 250 laps of PASS South action and a 250 lap special for Late Model stock cars – that’s 500 laps of feature racing, enough to satisfy any diehard short track race fan!
