NAPLES, ME — For many, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer. Folks all over the country break out their swimsuits and sunscreen to unwind after hibernating through the winter and spring. For race fans, the upcoming weekend highlights many of the pinnacles in racing. Open wheel’s Indianapolis 500 and the Grand Prix of Monaco and stock car racing’s Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte are some of the most coveted trophies in all of motorsports.
Short track racing is no different. The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model divisions provide some of the toughest competition in all of racing. And, competitors know they have beaten the best if they are lucky enough to take home a checkered flag in PASS. It is a rare occasion when both the PASS North and PASS South Super Late Models compete on the same weekend and Memorial Day weekend just happens to be one of those occasions. This weekend the best short track drivers in the country will be in competition with the PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models racing at North Carolina’s Caraway Speedway on Friday night and the PASS North Super Late Models racing at New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday afternoon.
The PASS South Super Late Models will start the weekend off on Friday returning to Caraway Speedway for the “Krazy” Kevin Powell 150. In two events at Caraway in 2012, PASS South front runners Kyle Grissom and Jay Fogleman took home the checkered flags. The two drivers enter Friday night’s event separated by just six points for the PASS South points lead.
