PASS South racers prep for return to Orange County

CHARLOTTE, NC (October 8) – As the 2014 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model season enters the homestretch, teams are busy preparing for their next challenge. The South’s top short trackers will tackle the high-banked Orange County Speedway near Durham, NC for race #12 on Saturday, October 18th. The Orange County 150 will almost certainly be a thriller if past races are any indication.

With the exception of Hickory Motor Speedway, no track on the PASS South schedule has hosted more events than Orange County Speedway. Since Wade Day won the inaugural event there in 2006, nine different PASS South drivers have gone to victory lane at Orange County throughout the years. With his win at Orange County in April, Roger Lee Newton joined Preston Peltier, Corey Williams, and Trevor Sanborn as the only drivers to win more than one PASS South event at the tough 3/8 mile oval.

The Fogleman name has been synonymous with racing at Orange County Speedway since the 1960’s. In his final season as a full-time PASS South competitor, Jay Fogleman was finally able to visit victory lane at his home track and parlayed that win in to the 2013 PASS South Super Late Model championship. Tate Fogleman is the third generation to race at Orange County Speedway and would love nothing more than to take his first PASS South checkered flag there in the Orange County 150.

“My Dad started racing there and so did my Grandpa and we’re hoping to draw a good crowd of family and friends and get a good finish,” said Fogleman, driver of the #8 Speedco Truck Lube & Tire Ford. “We’re really looking forward to the Orange County 150 and hoping to get a good practice in so we can get the setup right and get a good finish.”

Following a successful tenure in the PASS Pro Late Model division, Fogleman made the leap up to the PASS South Super Late Models in 2013. Throughout a season that saw its share of ups and downs, Fogleman remained consistent and finished fifth in both the PASS South and PASS National points standings.

The 2014 season has seen Fogleman mature as a driver and challenge more consistently for top five finishes, particularly in the second half of the year. Fogleman followed up a sixth place finish at South Boston Speedway in June with a career-best third place finish at Southern National Motorsports Park a month later. Those finishes have allowed Fogleman to become more confident in his abilities and in his Bull City Race Cars team heading back to Orange County.

“I think we finally found out what our car likes at all tracks basically and we’re starting to get good finishes now that we’ve got our setup right,” said Fogleman. “We’re really, really looking forward to our race at Orange County now that we’ve got our car right and I think we’re going to get at least a top five finish.”


Action at Orange County Speedway will get under way on Friday, October 17th with rotating practice for all divisions from 3 – 6 PM. On Saturday, October 18th, practice will start at 1 PM, followed by qualifying at 4:30 PM and racing slated to start at 6 PM. The PASS South Super Late Models will race for 150 laps, along with 50 laps for the PASS Pro Late Models, and 35 laps for the USAC Eastern Midgets.
