KENLY, NC — Preston Peltier looked to be on the way to his second straight Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model win, but slipped in oil from rookie Brandon Lynn’s car coming to the white flag handing Jay Fogleman the win in the Dogwood Blossom 150 Saturday night at Southern National Raceway Park. Fogleman’s 8th career win moves him out of a tie with Ben Rowe into sole possession of second place on the PASS South All Time Wins list.
“My spotter told me that there might be oiI going into turn three and when we got there Preston (Peltier) was about a lane higher than I was and got in it and we were able to get by and make it back to the checkered flag first,” said Fogleman. “I can’t thank Dicky Woodman and these guys enough for the car they gave me tonight. I’m gonna try to run as many races as I can driving other people’s cars because all the focus in my shop is on Tate (Fogleman’s son). He’s got a lot brighter future than I do.”
Beautiful weather greeted 32 PASS South Super Late Model teams to Southern National Raceway Park on Saturday afternoon for the series’ first trip to the speedway since 2009. In qualifying, Preston Peltier obliterated the PASS South track record at Southern National with a lap of 97.422 miles per hour around the high banked 4/10 mile track. Following the top ten qualifiers redraw to determine their starting positions in the main event, Peltier would draw pill #4 to start outside of the second row while his Johnson Motorsports teammate Tyler Church would pull pill #1 to start from the pole.
