MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Defending PASS South Champion Kyle Grissom charged from 12th after a lap 100 competition caution to the lead in just nine laps and held on to win the the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model Bash At The Beach 150 at Myrtle Beach Speedway. The win was Grissom’s sixth in his PASS South Super Late Model career.
“That first half we tried to save our tires as best we could and the left rear just wore out really bad. We made an adjustment at the break and as soon as we got back going, I knew that saving the tires wasn’t going to do anything for us,” said Grissom. “All I was trying to do was get to the lead and fall back from there to conserve. To finally win a race here at Myrtle Beach in a Super Late Model with PASS and beat all of those guys…it’s a really good night.”
Last week’s winner at Dillon and current PASS South points leader Austin Theriault employed a similar strategy to Grissom, falling back in the early going to outside the top 15. But, by lap 100, Theriault brought Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation Ford back up to 8th and in sight of the leaders. Both he and Grissom stormed to the front at the drop of the green flag and were mired in heavy lapped traffic in the final five laps. Theriault closed to within five car lengths of Grissom, but could not make an advance on the race leader and ultimately came home in second.
