PASS South and Trucks Ready To Kick Off 2009 At Dillon

The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models begin their biggest season yet with the 4th Annual South Carolina Clash this weekend at the Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, SC.  In addition to the 150 lap main event for the PASS South cars, the nation’s newest touring series, the PASS Late Model Trucks will also race for 75 laps on Saturday afternoon.

The South Carolina Clash joins other premier events such as the Easter Bunny 150 and the Mason Dixon Meltdown as one of the most storied races in PASS South history.  The first South Carolina Clash was held in 2006 at the Florence Motor Speedway.  This race was the first PASS South event for local hero Hal Goodson and would see an epic battle between veterans Freddie Query and Mike Rowe and up and coming superstar Charlie Bradberry.  The three drivers traded the lead back and forth while, at the same time, trading a little paint.  The race saw an extreme amount of attrition with only five cars running at the checkered flag.  Due to the number of caution laps that were run, fuel became a concern and Bradberry would relinquish the lead late to pit for fuel under caution.  The move paid off after Rowe’s car burped while running low on fuel allowing Bradberry to move around and hold off Query for the win.  Sadly, this would be Bradberry’s final Super Late Model win as he would lose his life in a traffic accident just a few months later.
