CHARLOTTE, NC (March 22) – Any time the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) National Championship Super Late Models come to Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC, there is always excitement. The high-banked, 3/8 mile speedway has hosted some of the series most competitive races since 2006 and returns to the schedule for the first time in nearly three years this Saturday night. It is a favorite stop for both fans and drivers alike when the south’s original Super Late Model series comes to town. But for 16-year-old PASS Super Late Model driver Tate Fogleman, there might just be a little extra incentive to perform well in the 10th Running of the Orange Blossom Special.
Being from nearby Durham, NC, Fogleman grew up in the shadows of Orange County Speedway. Both his grandfather, Kent, and father, two-time PASS National Champion, Jay Fogleman, have raced and won at Orange County. So naturally, anytime the Foglemans race there, it attracts a lot of family and friends.
“I’m very excited to get home to Orange County,” said Tate Fogleman, driver of the Solid Rock Carriers Ford #8. “I love the atmosphere of the track when PASS goes there. Orange County is also one of my favorite tracks to drive on, so I can’t wait to get back there.”
