PASS North Opener Postponed to April 26th
It’s been a long hard winter throughout the Northeast, and the harsh winter has caused Pro All Stars Series President, Tom Mayberry to move the Oxford Plains Speedway’s scheduled season opening, Ripley & Fletcher Ford 150 from Saturday, April 12, 2014 to Saturday, April 26th at 2pm. This change turns the weekend into a giant doubleheader as PASS North will open their Series on Saturday, and the $7,000 to win, Colossal Carnage 150 Enduro will go green on Sunday.
“We knew it was risky scheduling the opener in early April, but the past few seasons have allowed us to open up earlier as warm weather has graced us in late February and early March. Right now we still have several inches of snow on the grounds, and even with warm weather, we don’t feel the grounds will dry up enough to allow the event to be held on April 12th, stated Mayberry. We want to make sure to give plenty of advanced notice to our race teams, race fans, and employees, and that’s why we decided to make this decision well in advance of the event.”
With the opening date changed to April 26th, this will give teams like 2013 champion Cassius Clark, runner-up Joey Doiron, DJ Shaw, Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe and a host of others a couple of more weeks to fine tune their racers. Joining the PASS Super Late Models will be the PASS Mods, PASS Sportsman and the NELCAR Legends. Post time for the Saturday event will be 2pm.
