Three PASS Titles Still Up For Grabs

South – National – Sportsman

Naples, ME — The 2010 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) racing schedule is winding down, but there are still three championships to be decided when the PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Sportsman take to two different race tracks on Saturday October 16.

In New England the PASS Sportsman title is a three way battle between 2007 Champion Dan McKeage, defending Sportsman champ Carey Martin and Mike Landry. The standings were turned upside down on PASS 400 weekend at Beech Ridge when Landry had all sorts of problems, eventually wrecking out of the 100 lap feature for a 20th place result. McKeage earned his first win of 2010 and Martin came home in the show spot, vaulting the pair past Landry in the standings. McKeage has a fourteen point advantage over Martin with Landry twenty four back.

The title bout will add spice to Riverside Speedway’s season finale that includes qualifying races and a 75 lap feature for the PASS Sportsman, the Frostbite 250 four and six cylinder Enduro and the crowning of Riverside’s own Outlaw division champion. Riverside Speedway is just off Route 3 on Craggy Road in Groveton, New Hampshire. The action gets underway Saturday October 16 at 1:00 PM.

PASS South Season Heats Up at Newport Saturday

Naples, ME — The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South super late models get back on track this Saturday August 7 at Newport (TN) Speedway after a month- long hiatus and the 125 lap Daniel Boone Classic will mark the start of their stretch run to the 2010 series championship.

The Daniel Boone Classic has been a part of the PASS South schedule since 2008 and the wickedly fast high banked speed plant has seen just one driver wear the coonskin cap that signifies victory at the Tennessee oval. Jay Fogleman seems to have the key to victory lane at Newport and you can bet that the Durham North Carolina super late model star isn’t about to hand it over to his competition. Fogleman outran Bobby East in 2008 and Jake Crum in 2009 for two of his four career PASS wins, and without a doubt he will look to pull himself up in the series standings with a good run in the 2010 version of the Classic.

Fogleman sits in fourth behind Preston Peltier, Ryan Blaney and Andy Loden. That trio has dominated the win column to date. Peltier and Blaney each have two race wins; Blaney trails Peltier by 38 markers ((1716-1678) in the championship standings after eight events. Third place points man Andy Loden had a streak of three in a row going before Blaney snapped the skein at Greenville-Pickens. Justin Wakefield has the eighth win, his coming at Wake County.
