Charlotte, NC — Ever since it was announced in late October, few races have generated more buzz than the Pro All Stars Series first ever trip to Florida. PASS Florida Winterfest will be held at New Smyrna Speedway on January 29-30, 2010, and will bring together some of Super Late Model racing’s top drivers from across the country to do battle in the season’s first major event. Adding to the importance of this event will be the fact that Florida Winterfest will also be the first PASS National points race of 2010.
Lake Mary, FL driver Tim Russell has been hard to beat in the state of Florida in recent years winning championships in both the Sunbelt Super Late Model Series and the Bright House Challenge Series. In 2009, Russell won his second Florida Triple Crown Championship and, just recently, won the prestigious Governor’s Cup 200 at New Smyrna Speedway for the first time in his career. And now, Russell becomes the first driver to file an entry for PASS Florida Winterfest.
“I think Florida Winterfest is gonna be huge,” said Russell. “PASS has a great following and is a great series. Hopefully we can run good and get a few more PASS races in Florida. We wanted to run some PASS South events last year, but the funding wasn’t there. We’re hoping to run well at Winterfest and maybe run a few more PASS South events in 2010.”
