CHARLOTTE, NC (January 18) – Diversity is the name of the game as drivers from far and wide continue to prepare for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model season opener at Dillon Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon, February 4. The “Original” Winter Meltdown will again be on Super Bowl weekend and will pit the best short track racers in North America against one another for 200 laps in the first race of the 2017 PASS National Championship series.
Sarah Cornett-Ching comes into 2017 with realistic goals in PASS and something to prove to herself starting at Dillon. For the 25-year-old driver from British Columbia, just being at the Meltdown will be a victory of sorts. Following a season that saw her finish seventh in ARCA Racing Series points in 2015, Cornett-Ching ran a partial schedule last year. In the ARCA season finale at Kentucky Speedway, she suffered a serious concussion after a devastating crash. Experiencing symptoms similar to those of Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Cornett-Ching was unsure of her racing future.
“I don’t really know the exact time when I felt like I was ‘coming back’, but it’s more like the symptoms began to go away slowly and I would wake up one day and realize I didn’t feel nauseous anymore and then a few weeks later I would notice that I didn’t have a headache all the time,” says Cornett-Ching. “My memory would slowly improve and I would feel like I could do anything I used to be able to and when I started exerting energy it just knocked me back down. I am still working on getting my stamina back to where I was but thankfully the symptoms have totally gone away and the doctor has cleared me for all competition.” Continue reading ‘Diverse Entry List Continues to Grow for PASS Winter Meltdown at Dillon’
