  1. Lanier Just Days Away From Rebirth For PASS Finale NAPLES, ME (November 7) – In just over a week, the sounds of race engines will again permeate the hills and countryside of North Georgia when the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models hit the pavement at Lanier Raceplex. Throwing back to the original name of the speedway which has been shuttered for the better part of the last decade, the Lanier National 200 will pay $6,000 to win and $1,000 just to start the feature on Saturday, November 16. Along with the 200 lap contest, points leader, Mike Hopkins of Maine, will look to be crowned the 12th PASS National Super Late Model Champion. Joining the PASS Super Late Models in action will be feature events for Legends Pros/Masters, Semi-Pros, and Young Lions, along with racing for Bandeleros. Opened as a dirt track by Bud Lunsford in 1982, the .375-mile speed plant hosted the World Of Outlaws Sprint Cars six times, with open wheel legends Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell each taking the checkered flag twice. In 1987, Lanier National Speedway was paved and the late Darrell Brown of Alabama scored the win in the first big event there on pavement for the NASCAR Winston All-American Challenge Series. From 1989-1992, Lanier hosted the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series with Ronald Cooper, Chuck Bown, David Green, and Bobby Labonte all taking home the checkered flags. The track continued to host some of the biggest Super Late Model events in the country through the 1990s as short track pavement legends like Mike Garvey, Freddie Query, Billy Bigley, Jr., Wayne Willard, among others taking home wins at Lanier. A new generation of drivers came up through the ranks at Lanier in the 2000s, including Bubba Pollard, Casey Roderick and Paul Kelley. When PASS initially began sanctioning Super Late Model races in the south, Lanier was one of the first tracks to come on board to host an event. Georgia native Jason Hogan won the first PASS race there in 2006, while Maine’s Corey Williams took the checkered flag the most recent time PASS held a race at Lanier in 2007. Now in its 12th season, Super Late Model racing’s only true national championship will bring drivers together from all over North America to compete next weekend at Lanier Raceplex. In addition to the grandstands being open, Lanier’s famed trackside parking will be available to fans for this event for just $10. The track was repaved and all infield buildings were torn down when the facility was transformed to host drifting events and Go-Kart racing for the public. All race cars will be pitted outside the track so fans will be able to enjoy an unobstructed view of the action from any vantage point at the speedway. For just $20, fans and teams can camp at the speedway as well. Joining earlier entrants like hometown favorite Shane Chastain and former PASS champions, Derek Griffith and Tate Fogleman, Maine’s Ben Ashline and Ryan Moore are entered, along with longtime fan favorite, Randy Gentry. Lanier Raceplex officially roars back to life on Friday, November 15 with practice for PASS Super Late Models and Legends cars from 1 PM to 5 PM. On Saturday, November 16, pit gates will open at 8 AM, followed by practice at 10 AM, heat races for PASS Super Late Models, Legends, and Bandoleros at 12:30PM, followed by the Lanier National 200 and remaining features. Sunday, November 17 is reserved as a rain date if needed. PASS Super Late Model, Legends, and Bandolero entry forms and the complete weekend schedule for Lanier Raceplex are available at ProAllStarsSeries.com
  2. Strong Field Set To Tackle Hickory At 14th Annual Easter Bunny 150 NAPLES, ME(April 17) – As the 14th Annual My Computer Career Easter Bunny 150 approaches this weekend, drivers and teams from across North America are making their annual holiday trek to Hickory Motor Speedway. The action-packed Saturday of racing will also see Mini Stocks added to the Easter Bunny weekend, utilizing Carolina Mini Stock Challenge rules. Meanwhile, the state of Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model racing in the Mid-Atlantic appears to be on the rebound. As it has since 2006, the MyComputerCareerEaster Bunny 150 and its iconic trophy have become bucket list material for many short track racers from across the country. But, there is even more on the line in this year’s version of theMyComputerCareer Easter Bunny 150. With over 30 cars already entered, the “Bunny” has added importance this year as it is once again a part of the prestigious PASS National Championship Series. Five-time PASS National Champion, Ben Rowe, has seen the Easter Bunny 150 grow since its inception in 2006 and he believes it will just to continue to grow as one of short track racing's premier events. “I think it’s just getting bigger and bigger,” says Rowe, a winner of the Easter Bunny 150 in 2009 and 2016. “Everyone in the south knows the Easter Bunny at Hickory now. Just look at Bubba Pollard, one of the best Super Late Model racers in the country is coming to Hickory again to try and get the Easter Bunny trophy, that says a lot.” On the other end of the spectrum is second-year PASS racer, Gracie Trotter. Trotter turned heads with an impressive drive in the 2017 Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown at Hickory. Coming off a history making sixth place finish in Asheboro, NC last year, which tied Kenzie Ruston and Tayla Orleansas the best finish by a female ever in PASS competition, Trotter is ready to try her hand again against the best short trackers on the continent. “I've always ran well at Hickory and holding off Ben Rowe for the win in the last chance race a couple of years ago was huge,” says Trotter. “There are a lot of cars in this race so I’m going to have to stay on my toes. I know if I stay patient, keep the nose clean, and watch ahead, I can get a good finish.” Rowe and Trotter will be up against one of the strongest fields ever assembled on Saturday for the 14thAnnualMyComputerCareer Easter Bunny 150, including 6-Time Easter Bunny 150 winner, Preston Peltier, defending Oxford 250 winner, Bubba Pollard, and former Hickory winner and fan favorite, Brandon Setzer.

Jerrick Johnson will pilot the MyComputer Career machine and will be joined by Kyle Busch Motorsports driver, Amber Balcaen, making her first PASS Super Late Model start. And two Canadian provinces are currently represented by Ontario’s, JP Josiasse and Nova Scotia's, Nicholas Naugle. The action kicks off on Friday, with optional practice for the PASS Super Late Model and Mini Stocks from 3– 6PM. On Saturday, practice will begin at 2 PM, followed by qualifying at 4:30 PM, the pit partyand Easter egg huntat 6PM, and features for the PASS Super Late Models and Mini Stocks at 7 PM Entry forms and the complete weekend schedule for the 14thAnnual MyComputerCareer Easter Bunny 150are posted onProAllStarsSeries.com, along with forms for next weekend's Oxford Plains Speedway opener and the 46th Annual Oxford 250.

  3. Road to the Oxford 250 Continues in 2019 NAPLES, ME (April 9) – Oxford Plains Speedway owner and Pro All Stars Series President Tom Mayberry announced the continuation of the Road to The Oxford 250 program for 2019. Celebrating its sixth year in 2019, the “Road to The Oxford 250” will continue to give racers across the continent the chance to compete in short track asphalt racing’s biggest event. As mentioned with the announcement a little over a month ago of the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval event, competitors from Canada and the United States will have opportunity to race for guaranteed starting spots in six additional events in 2019, while keeping the focus on the 250 throughout the season. “Our goal is to keep the focus on the 250 throughout the year. While there will be several spots offered through the program, many of these will not have to be used since most of those competitors will advance through the famed heat and consolation races. Competitors need to remember that this program will not reduce the number of starting positions that will be earned through the normal 250 qualifying procedures but will allow those who may be having a bad day to use the provisional if necessary, to guarantee their starting spot in this prestigious race.” The first event to be featured in the Road to The Oxford 250 will be the previously announced Leonard Evans 150 scheduled to take place on April 27, 2019 on the northwest coast at the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval located in Wenatchee Valley, Washington. The winner of this event, along with the second and third place finishers, if PASS licensed and their Oxford 250 entry is received by June 1, 2019, will be guaranteed a provisional starting spot. The first-place winner will receive a full pay provisional, and second and third will receive a ½ start provisional (with a guarantee of $600 to take the green, the ½ provisional means that wherever the competitor finishes, they will see a reduction of $300 (½ of the guaranteed starting money) in their final purse for their finishing position). The Road then continues to the season opener at Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday April 28th; Thunder Road in Barre, VT on Sunday May 26th; Speedway 95 in Bangor, ME on Sunday June 16th; Star Speedway in Epping, NH on Tuesday July 30th; and finishing off at Spud Speedway in Caribou, ME on Sunday August 4th. The top two finishing drivers each from Canada and the United States will earn provisionals to the 250. As with the Wenatchee Valley race, to be eligible to use the provisionals, drivers must be PASS Licensed and have their entries submitted for the Oxford 250. The top US and top Canadian driver will each receive a full start provisional with second place finishing US and Canadian driver each earning a ½ start provisional. The final race as part of the Road to The Oxford 250 will be a special 100-lap open race at Oxford Plains Speedway Saturday July 6th. This will not be a points race for PASS. The Independence Weekend race will see the top two Oxford Plains and top two PASS licensed finishing drivers earn a guaranteed spot in the 2019 Oxford 250. Additionally, the top licensed drivers in points from PASS North, Oxford Plains Speedway, and the PASS National Championship Series, will have a provisional available, if needed, as long as they have attempted to qualify for every race in their chosen series. All drivers that will have guaranteed spots through the Road to The Oxford 250 or via championship points provisionals have to compete in their heat races and in their consolation race but will not have to compete in the last chance race if they have not already qualified. The next PASS event will be the MyComputerCareer.edu Easter Bunny 150 on Saturday, April 20 at Hickory Motor Speedway for the PASS National Championship Super Late Models.

  5. Reed, Hopkins Take PASS Commonwealth Classic Wins At Richmond RICHMOND, VA (March 30) – Austin Reed and Mike Hopkins split Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model wins in the Inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic Saturday afternoon at Richmond Raceway. “The crew made some awesome adjustments at the halfway break and then the car was on rails,” said Reed after the biggest win of his career. “To win at Richmond is just amazing. I can’t believe we won yet, but I can’t wait for it to sink in.” Speed51 photo In qualifying, both PASS Crate pole sitter Ray Christian, III and Heim, the PASS Open fast qualifier, were quicker than Kevin Harvick’s pole time at Richmond last fall, with Heim posting a lap of 126.152 miles per hour. Heim jumped to the lead at the start for the PASS Open Super Late Model race, while Tate Fogleman settled into second. The car on the move early was Matt Craig, who started sixth, but moved past Fogleman for second on lap 30. The two made slight contact at the exit of turn two causing damage to the right rear of Craig’s Camaro. Craig was able to repair the damage during the competition caution on lap 40. On the restart, Craig appeared to get the advantage on Heim entering turn one, but Heim would rocket back by him down the backstretch. The battle for second between Craig and Fogleman would heat up again, literally. As Fogleman looked ready to take the position, a fire would erupt from under the hood of his car to bring out the second caution of the night on lap 48. Following the restart, Craig continued to struggle a bit as Ben Rowe looked to try and take second. But, after the two made contact in turn three, Jared Irvan was able to jump up to the outside and pass both of them for second. The fastest car on the racetrack, though, was Austin Reed as he was making his way up from the rear of the field. Reed would take second from Irvan with three laps to go, but would run out of time as Heim led flag-to-flag to apparently take his first career PASS Super Late Model win. But, in post-race inspection, Heim’s car was disqualified, handing the win to Reed. Irvan would finish second, followed by Craig, Rowe, and Augie Grill. Rounding out the top ten were Eddie MacDonald, Derek Griffith, Eddie Van Meter, Mike Wallace, and Kyle Reed. At the drop of the green flag for the PASS Crate Late Models, Christian jumped out to the lead from the pole. After a caution for debris from Garrett Hall’s machine on lap 10, Martin Latulippe was able to grab the lead from Christian on the restart. It would be short-lived though as Christian reassumed the top spot three laps later. The caution would wave again on lap 24 when Hall slammed the turn four wall after spinning in fluid from the car of Reid Lanpher. Prior to the competition caution on lap 40, Hopkins would snag the lead from Christian. But just two laps after the restart, Christian would move back by to take the lead. Christian looked to be driving away for the win, but would fall off the pace with just 12 laps to go with mechanical issues. Hopkins moved back up front and led the rest of the way for his second career PASS win over Jake Johnson, Matt Craig, Latulippe, and Gabe Brown. Rounding out the top ten were Ben Rowe, Kyle Reed, Devin O’Connell, Dan McKeage, and Derek Ramstrom. “I can’t believe that we just won at Richmond,” said Hopkins in victory lane. “We really struggled with the car yesterday in traffic, but we put our heads together and worked on the car and it handled flawlessly today. I’m honestly a little emotional, this is just awesome!” Joey Polewarcyzk, Jr. was the ACT Late Model winner and Matt Hirschman was the Tour-Type Modified victor, while Jason McDowell took the MASS Street Stock win and Daniel Bentley claimed the NEMST Mini Stock win. The PASS National Championship Super Late Models will be in action next up on Sunday, April 7 for The Icebreaker at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut. Entry forms are currently available at ProAllStarsSeries.com. Be sure to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at @PASSSLM14.

  6. PASS National Championship To Kickoff On Big Stage At Richmond NAPLES, ME (March 16) – In two weeks, grassroots racers from across North America will finally be able to converge on Richmond Raceway for the long-awaited PASS Commonwealth Classic on Saturday, March 30. For many, it will be the chance of a lifetime to compete on one of the most historic short tracks in the country. But, for others, it will be the start of the 2019 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) National Championship Series. Now in its 12th season, the PASS National Championship Series is the country's only national title to be awarded in Super Late Model racing. With two national championship points paying races for the PASS Super Late Models at Richmond, several drivers are looking to compete in both 75 lap races, each of which will pay $7,000 and $700 to start. One of those drivers is Uncasville, CT's, Ray Christian, III, who will be competing in both races. "I think being able to race at Richmond is awesome," says Christian. "Any time weekly short track racers that are used to running on quarter-mile to half-mile ovals get the chance to run on the same track that the stars run on, you really feel like a superstar and I'm excited for it. It's PASS's first time at Richmond so I feel like that will make the competition really tight because no one knows what to expect. It's definitely going to be a show." After competing locally in Connecticut and in sporadic ACT Late Model shows, Christian burst onto the national scene last year following a strong performance in Dillon, SC that saw him finish third behind PASS National Champions, Derek Griffith and Ben Rowe. Christian feels he and his team are ready to take the next step towards a championship beginning with Richmond. "After our strong showing last year finishing second in national points as a rookie, we are definitely hungry to chase a national championship," says Christian. "It's definitely going to be a tough task. We came out of nowhere last year and nobody really knew who we were wherever we went. But I feel like now we're definitely on people's radar and they know that we are fast enough to compete for podium wins and a national title." The total number of PASS Super Late Models is almost at 40 with entries still coming in. PASS veterans Jody Measamer, Jared Irvan and Reid Lanpher are now entered, along with Virginia driver Collin Garrett and Brandon Watson. On the other end of the spectrum, Kyle Reid will be making the long tow from Alberta to compete, while Dan McKeage will be heading down from Maine and PASS National Championship rookie contender Devin O'Connell will be coming from Connecticut. The ACT Late Models will be competing in a 65-lapper at Richmond Raceway and has 36 cars entered as of today with a host of heavy hitters. Former Milk Bowl winners, Patrick Laperele and Joey Polewarcyzk are now entered, along with former Thunder Road champion and ACT winner, Bobby Therrien. The Tour-Type Modifieds will be making their return to Richmond for the first time since 2002, utilizing the popular rules package used at New Smyrna Speedway during Florida Speedweeks. North Carolina's Bryan Dauzat has filed an entry along with Connecticut's Jim Dolan, and Kris Watson. The grassroots racing action as part of the PASS Commonwealth Classic will be completed by events for the MASS Street Stocks and North East Mini Stocks (NEMST), and both divisions have shown great support from competitors around the country. Over 30 Street Stocks are now entered from Maine to Florida, including David Cameron and Joe Gerrard. Frankie Kimmel will be looking to follow up a strong second place finish at Dillon's New Year's Bash, while Virginia's Justin Brown and Vermont's Adam Maynard will be looking for good finishes as well. The largest field in NEMST history have filed entries with over 40 Mini Stocks expected to assemble. Drivers range from Maine to as far south as South Carolina and as far west as Ohio. Competitors will be racing for a minimum $1000 to win plus bonus awards and a $100 to start purse. The PASS Commonwealth Classic weekend will begin on Thursday, March 28 with optional hauler parking and safety inspection from 12 - 4 PM. On Friday, March 29, rotating practice for all competing divisions will be from 11 AM – 5 PM. And then on Saturday, March 30, pit gates at Richmond Raceway will open at 7 AM, with practice from 9 AM – 12 PM, qualifying at 1 PM, and racing set to start at around 4 PM Entry forms and rules contacts for PASS Super Late Models, Tour-Type Modifieds, and MASS Street Stocks are also posted at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

  7. PASS Opener At Dillon Postponed Due To Rainy Weather NAPLES, ME (February 20) – After closely monitoring the weather for the last several days and with an extremely poor forecast for the rest of the week, officials with the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) and Dillon Motor Speedway felt it best to postpone this weekend’s Winter Meltdown 200. It has rained non-stop in the Dillon area for several days, and with more rain coming and possible weepers in turn four at the speedway, everyone felt postponing this weekend's event was in the best interest of all involved. And, with several teams traveling from New England and Canada, and states such as Florida, Georgia, and others, and with more rain being forecasted for the Pee Dee region of South Carolina, the decision was made to postpone today in the hopes of saving money for all the teams and fans. Several dates later this year are currently being looked at by PASS and Dillon Motor Speedway officials to try and reschedule the Winter Meltdown 200. A final decision will be announced in the coming weeks. The PASS opener will now move to Saturday, March 30 and the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway in Virginia.

In all, PASS will sanction 22 Super Late Model events next year, with six of those events being national events. Once again, the schedule is highlighted by the 46th Annual Oxford 250 on August 25 at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME). The $25,000-to-win crown jewel event attracted 55 Super Late Models in 2018. The 2019 PASS National schedule will get underway on February 23 at Dillon Motor Speedway (SC) before heading to Richmond Raceway on March 30 for the inaugural Commonwealth Classic. From there, the next national race will be the prestigious Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway on April 20. A new event on the national schedule, a visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the New England Short Track Showdown, will be held June 23 at "The Magic Mile." The Oxford 250 will serve as the penultimate PASS National Championship event, leading into the season finale at Seekonk Speedway on October 26. Drivers from the north will kick off the 2019 PASS North season on April 14 at Oxford Plains Speedway, a track that averaged 41 Super Late Models for PASS events in 2018. That event includes a rain date of April 28 if Mother Nature chooses not to cooperate. Following the opener at Oxford, the PASS North Super Late Models will travel south to Epping, New Hampshire for a battle at the Star Speedway bullring on May 11. A busy month of May will continue on May 19 before PASS makes its first stop at Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl (VT) on May 26. As the temperatures rise, the fastest full-bodied cars in the Northeast will return to Oxford Plains on June 6. After a week off, the stars and cars of the Pro All Stars Series will make their annual trip north to Speedway 95 in Hermon, Maine on June 16. After making a stop at "The Magic Mile" in Loudon, New Hampshire on June 23, PASS will return to Oxford for the Non-Winner's race on June 30. That race will not be a points-counting event for PASS North or the PASS National Championship.

  9. New Englanders Ready For Chance To Win PASS National Championship At Hickory CHARLOTTE, NC (October 31) – The longest season in grassroots, short track racing will come to a close on Saturday afternoon, November 10, when the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) National Championship Super Late Models take the green flag at Hickory Motor Speedway.

Last year, race fans across the country were able to see the ultimate North versus South shootout when North Carolina's Brandon Setzer and Maine's Garrett Hall tangled coming to the checkered flag. This year, all eyes will be focused on the battle for asphalt Super Late Model racing's only national championship. After wins by Derek Griffith at Dillon and Thompson, CT to start the PASS National Championship season, Connecticut's Ray Christian, III has chipped away at the lead and now trails Griffith by a single point as he heads to Hickory for the first time ever. "We're going in to Hickory with the same mindset that we have at every other racetrack...learn as much as we can and bring the car home in one piece," says Christian, driver of the Crazy Horse Racing #93. "This whole national championship run was a completely unexpected scenario for us, considering this is my first year in a Super Late Model. But, I think we have shown these guys that we can race with them a little bit this year." Not to be forgotten though will also be Turner, ME's, Ben Rowe. The 5-Time and defending PASS National Champion sits third in the standings, just 10 points behind Griffith. And, of Rowe's 10 career wins down south, three have come at Hickory. Those stats are not lost on Christian. "I've never been to Hickory, but I've watched races from down there and guys like Ben Rowe have a million laps there," says Christian. "I can't wait to get down there because it looks like a blast and definitely the kind of place I can really get in to. I just hope that no matter how the national points turn out that, at the end of the day at Hickory, I hope we earn those guys respect." And, if the PASS National Championship fight is not enough, fans will be treated to Matt Craig versus Kodie Conner as Craig goes for his third straight PASS South Super Late Model title, plus MASS Street Stocks and Legends.

Getting locked in to Oxford is huge, it’s big. Oxford is gonna be a tough field, those guys are good. We’ve been working hard all year to try and make that our race to focus on, so I hope we can do it.” For the third straight race this year, the track qualifying record was broken in qualifying.

Jones and Pollard would trade the lead back-and-forth before Pollard would move ahead with 20 laps to go. Lynn slammed the wall hard with 11 laps to go setting up another restart and run to the finish. When the green waved again, Jones would get the advantage over Pollard on the restart. As the two battled for the lead, Pollard would get a run on Jones entering turn three, but contact between the two would cause Pollard to spin.

There was actually a lot of momentum up on the outside and my dad kept me pumped up. This is awesome.” In qualifying, Burton set a new track record with a lap of 15.703 seconds (114.628 MPH) for his first career PASS South quick qualifying time around the fast half-mile triangle.

Following the restart, Jones would get the advantage over Wallace on lap 41, but would relinquish the lead back to him in turn three just seven laps later. The race would continue caution-free until lap 75 when Peltier looped his ill-handling car exiting turn three. Prior to the restart, Burton had bypassed Jones for second and would start alongside Wallace as they came back to green. Burton got the advantage over Wallace to take the lead for the first time in the race. The caution would wave again with 25 laps to go for a hard crash by Corey Heim in the dogleg, which saw his machine briefly catch fire.
