Winter Meltdown and Rich SC History Meet in PASS Opener at Dillon

CHARLOTTE, NC (February 2) – While New England and Canada’s best dig out of the snow to make their way South, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model racers from across the Southeast prepare to greet them for this weekend’s 4th Winter Meltdown at Dillon Motor Speedway. While Dillon has hosted PASS as part of the South Carolina Clash event since 2008, this year’s 200 lap Meltdown will be held there for the first time. The Winter Meltdown has been dominated by New Englanders with Brad Leighton taking the checkered flag at New Smyrna in 2010 and Maine’s Joey Doiron claiming the last two versions with wins at Auburndale and Greenville.

On Saturday afternoon, the Winter Meltdown and South Carolina Clash combine for a mega-event, which will feature over 300 laps of racing for the PASS Super Late Models, DMS Late Models, and Pro 4 Cylinders. The South Carolina Clash at the Winter Meltdown will be 200 green flag laps and will double as the first race of the PASS National Championship Series and PASS South Super Late Model season.

Ever since the first South Carolina Clash was held at nearby Florence Motor Speedway in 2006, the event has been one of the featured races annually on the PASS South schedule. In that race 11 years ago, the late Charlie Bradberry held off short track legends Mike Rowe and Freddie Query in a frantic battle to the checkered flag.
