It will mark the first ever trip for the PASS Super Late Models to the tight quarter-mile oval located in Winter Haven.
“I can’t think of a better way to start 2013 than in Florida at Auburndale,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “The weather should be really nice in February and I know our PASS North competitors in New England and Canada, along with our PASS South competitors in the Southeast are excited to get the season started with the Florida Winter Meltdown. Super Late Model racing has a great heritage in Florida and we’re really looking forward to a great battle between the Sunshine State’s best racers and the PASS regulars.”
Auburndale Speedway owner Rex Guy has been at the forefront in helping to get the PASS Super Late Models back to Florida. Guy is excited to bring major Super Late Model racing back to his home state.

After talking to several racers in the area, there is definitely a lot of interest in the Florida Winter Meltdown.”
