NAPLES, ME (July 14) – A season of firsts continues this weekend as the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) AIM Recycling Super Late Models Presented By Kenny U-Pull head to New York state for the first time ever to compete as part of the International 500 weekend at Airborne Park Speedway. For only the second time in history, PASS will co-headline the weekend along with the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models, with twin 200’s. The PASS 200 lap portion of the International 500 weekend will pay $7500 to win plus additional lap leader money with a potential for the winner to take home up to $10,000. The fourth race of the prestigious PASS National Championship Series will also pay $1000 to start.
One driver who will be very busy this weekend will be Hudson, NH’s, Joey Polewarczyk. Joey Pole, as he is known by his fans, will be competing in both main events, driving his ACT Late Model as well as his PASS AIM Recycling Super Late Model. While it will be the first time many of the PASS drivers have competed at Airborne Park Speedway, Polewarczyk hopes to have the upper hand based on his previous experiences racing there with ACT.
“Airborne is a D-shaped, half-mile, progressively banked racetrack that has a lot of grip and a lot of speed,” says Polewarczyk, driver of the Pole’s Automotive #97. “It was repaved a few years ago, but it definitely has some bumps. You really need to get your car rotating well to run a fast lap there. Out of all the tracks the ACT tour goes to, it’s really one of my favorite tracks. I think the PASS cars are really going to race well there.”
