Pro All Stars Series Releases North Schedule – No Maritime Dates, Four Quebec Races

TCM Notes – While we’ve seen this play out before, the Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model schedule has been released and features no scheduled Maritime race. The 2013 schedule was published the same way but an event at Speedway 660 was later scheduled for June 8th. The event was washed out on that weekend and was never rescheduled, leaving the 2013 season as the first since the series inception in 2001 that an event did not take place in Atlantic Canada.

Keep in mind though fans, there is a June 14th “TBA” date on the schedule, which would be the traditional PASS North weekend at Speedway 660. I’m sure all the Maritime Super Late fans will keep their fingers crossed.

In addition, the PASS Schedule has a “TBA” date scheduled for “August 23rd, 24th or 30th.” Last year, PASS North ran Twin 150’s at White Mountain on the Labour Day weekend, which prevented some teams from traveling North for the Auto Value 250 at Speedway 660. Again, Super Late Model fans will be watching the progression of the schedule as it evolves as it pertains to that date.

It appears that the PASS Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudiere is back on the schedule with events on May 17th, August 5th and September 6th. The August 5th race is a Tuesday night show, as was the 2013 edition in which Kyle Busch spanked the field in front of a packed house – that is, prior to rolling his car through technical inspection which gave DJ Shaw the win. It is well worth the drive to see this gem of a race track, folks, mark my words!

PASS North also has an event scheduled at Autodrome Montmagny in Quebec for June 28th.

Oh, and by the way, PASS also released their South SLM schedule as well. Read more below in the series release, which also includes information on this weekend’s Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National in Kenly, NC.

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 21) – Excitement continues to build as one of the most anticipated short track events of the fall, the 8th Annual Mason Dixon Meltdown, gets set to run this weekend at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, NC.  The Meltdown will feature a 200 lap event for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models that will determine both the PASS National and PASS South champions.

PASS National points leader Jay Fogleman leads southern frontrunners Kyle Grissom, Spencer Davis, Jody Measamer, Trevor Noles, John Batten, Tyler Church and others against a formidable group of challengers from New England led by Ben Rowe, Joey Doiron, Joey Polewarczyk, Kyle Desouza, Derek Ramstrom, and Steve Legendre.

An event creating nearly as much buzz as the PASS Super Late Model race will be a 30 lapper for the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Cars.  It will be the first time winged sprints cars with 410 cubic inch engines have raced on asphalt in North Carolina since 1989.  The Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Cars will make an all-out assault on the overall track record at Southern National Motorsports Park and will feature such open wheel stars as Jimmy McCune, Brian Gerster, Davey Hamilton, Jr., Troy Decaire, Kody Swanson and Brian Tyler.

Additionally, PASS officials announced today the release of the 2014 tentative schedules for the PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models.  The PASS South Super Late Model schedule will be highlighted by the return of the series to two of the South’s most prolific half-mile speedways.  The season will begin February 7-8 and will begin both the PASS South and PASS National seasons by kicking off Florida Speedweeks with the Winter Meltdown at New Smyrna Speedway.  Greenville-Pickens Speedway returns for two events in 2014.  The historic South Carolina track first began hosting stock car events in 1946 and was once a hotbed for Super Late Model racing.  In addition to the season opener, Greenville-Pickens Speedway will once again host the Firecracker 150 on July 3.  That event returns to Greenville-Pickens where it was held from 2008-2010.

PASS South and the PASS National series will once again contest the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway on April 19 and will conclude the season on November 22 with Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National Motorsports Park.  Since their inceptions in 2006, both the Easter Bunny 150 and the Mason Dixon Meltdown have grown in stature to become two of the premier events in short track racing.  Additionally, two Virginia tracks will join the PASS South Super Late Model family of tracks with both Franklin County Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway hosting the series for the first time in 2014.

“We are very pleased to be able to release our 2014 PASS South Super Late Model schedule at such an early date,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry.  “We’ve had great support from our competitors this year and we hope by releasing our schedule in November that will give them plenty of time to prepare for next year.  We’ve got some great tracks returning to the schedule and we look forward to making lasting relationships at our new venues as well.”

Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, NC will host three PASS South Super Late Models in 2014 on May 31, July 12, and the Mason Dixon Meltdown on November 22.  Hickory Motor Speedway will also host multiple events with the Easter Bunny 150 on April 19 and the Over The Mountain 150 on September 20.

Dillon Motor Speedway will host the 9th Annual South Carolina Clash on March 8.  Orange County Speedway, a favorite of many PASS South Super Late Model competitors, returns for a ninth straight year with the Orange Blossom Special on April 5.  Caraway Speedway will also be back as the PASS South Super Late Models will compete as part of the popular 12th Annual North-South Shootout on date in November still yet to be determined.

South Boston Speedway will host two PASS South events in 2014 on June 7 and August 16.  Fellow Virginia racetracks Franklin County Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway will host PASS events for the first time ever in 2014.  Franklin County Speedway has seen a revival this year under veteran racing promoter Langley Austin and will welcome the PASS South Super Late Models to the facility on June 21.  Likewise, the picturesque Lonesome Pine Raceway in Southwest Virginia will see the return of Super Late Models for the first time in more than a decade on August 2.

The PASS Pro Late Models will compete in at least 11 companion events with the PASS South Super Late Models in 2014 with up to two additional dates being added.

Although the 2014 schedule is nearly complete, additional dates could be added in May and on October 18 by December 4.

Look for schedules for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, and PASS Sportsman to be released in the near future.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America’s premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as PASS South’s Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, the Autobus La Qubecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudiere, and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions to passracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information.  And, don’t forget to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with breaking news as it happens.
