NEW HANDICAP SYSTEM FOR
2014 PASS SPORTSMAN

Pro All Stars Series President, Tom Mayberry has announced that there will be a new handicapping system in place for the 2014 racing season for the PASS Sportsman division.

“In best interest of competition, we are going to implement the same handicapping system that we use with the PASS Super Late Models into the PASS Sportsman division for 2014, stated Mayberry. We feel that this system will help even out the field and make for better racing for both the drivers and for the fans alike. Fans enjoy seeing some of the top cars coming from back in the pack, and have to race their way to the front of the field!”

The new handicapping system will allow cars to be lined up in the feature event from the order that they finished in the qualifying heat, with the big exception that once you win a race, you can’t start any better than eleventh in the feature no matter where you qualified in the preliminary rounds. As the season progresses, this system will force the top cars to charge from deeper in the field making racing much more intense for the racers and fans as well. This new handicapping system will go into effect at the opening PASS Sportsman event which is scheduled for Saturday, April 12th at 2pm at Oxford Plains Speedway. The opening day event will include the PASS Super Late Models, PASS Sportsman and PASS Mods, as well as the NELCAR Legends.
CHARLIE ROCKWELL NAMED
NEW CHIEF TECHNICAL

INSPECTOR FOR 2014
PASS NORTH SERIES RACES
PASS President, Tom Mayberry has announced that Charlie Rockwell will be taking over Chief Technical Inspector job for the PASS North Series in 2014. Rockwell will be taking over the position from long time inspector, Scott Reed whom is pursuing other interests. Rockwell will be taking over the job immediately, handling all technical questions from racers throughout the off-season.

Rockwell hails from Orleans, Vermont where he is a quality control inspector for the Ethan Allen Company. He resides with his wife Jamie, and young daughter, Marina. Rockwell has been involved in racing for numerous years, first working on race cars, then stepping behind the wheel for several years driving everything from Enduro cars to Late Models. In 2011, the heavy underdog qualified for the Oxford 250, putting a check mark on one of his bucket list items.

In 2010, Charlie and his wife Jamie took over as the Tech team at Canaan Fair Speedway where the team developed into one of the most respected in the business. His vast knowledge of everything from four cylinders, to Late Models, Super Late Models, as well as Modifieds made him a leading candidate for the job. Jamie Rockwell will also be joining the team as she will work side by side with her husband in the tech area.

“I am really excited to have Charlie and Jamie on board with us, stated Tom Mayberry, they are first class all the way, and will fit in nicely in our organization. Charlie’s knowledge of numerous types of racecars is important for us, and he and his wife Jamie, both have tremendous people skills. Losing Scotty left us with a big void, as his vast knowledge and tremendous work ethic will definitely be missed, but we feel that the Rockwell’s will be good replacements as we head into the future.”

The 2014 PASS North schedule will be released in the very near future.

For for technical questions for the PASS North Series, contact Charlie & Jamie Rockwell at 802-754-2822 after 5 PM.

If anyone needs technical support for the PASS South Series they may contact Kyler Honeycutt at
704-791-6115.
ISMA SUPERMODIFIEDS RETURNING
to OXFORD PLAINS SPEEDWAY in 2014
Honorary Grand Marshall Bentley Warren
Oxford Plains Speedway President, Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce that the ISMA Supermodifieds will return to Oxford Plains Speedway in 2014 after several years’ absence. The ISMA Supers will be in action on Friday night, June 20, 2014. The event will be sponsored by Locke Crane Service.

“We are so excited to have the ISMA organization back with us here at OPS stated Mayberry. These super sleek machines are so lightening quick, that they will keep the fans on the edge of their seats for entire 75 lap event. The “Winged Warriors” are known for their two and three wide racing, and Oxford Plains Speedway’s racing surface will be the perfect place for them to perform at their finest!”

The Friday night event will honor one of the all time greats of the sport, as the legendary Bentley Warren will be the honorary Grand Marshall for the event, as the event will be dubbed as the Bentley Warren ISMA Classic. Warren is a four time ISMA Series champion, and currently sits in third place all time all time feature wins list with 47 victories.

Today, ISMA continues at the forefront of Supermodifieds sanctioning bodies, pioneering the franchise system, in which teams purchase a franchise at the beginning of the season. Creating a win-win situation for both the teams and promoters, each of the franchise teams are allowed to miss up to three shows during the race season while being guaranteed a minimum starting purse of $1,000 at each event. This system helps to ensure solid, stable car counts and a successful event for the promoter. Over the past decade, ISMA has sanctioned between 13 and 17 shows a year, including two of the prestigious Supermodifieds races – the July Hy-Miler Nationals at Sandusky (Ohio) Speedway, which has been a staple ISMA event since 1978, and September’s Star Classic at the quarter-mile Star bullring in Epping, New Hampshire, an event that has a history dating back over 40 years.

The Supermodifieds join an exciting lineup of special events for 2014 including the 41st Annual Oxford 250, the 2nd Annual Monster Truck Throwdown, The Colossal Carnage 150, the $7,000 to win Enduro, the NAPA Show, Shine and Drags, as well as the 2nd Annual Tom Mayberry Swap Meet & Flea Market.

Sunoco Signs
Multi-Year Agreement
with the
Pro All Stars Series
Naples ME - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry and Sunoco Race Fuels have announced a multi-year agreement making Sunoco Supreme and Standard racing gasoline the official spec fuel for all five PASS touring series through 2011 and beyond.

The Pro All Stars Series sanctions and promotes five racing series in the eastern United States and Canada. 2011 marks the series’ eleventh anniversary.

“Sunoco has been with us from day one,” said Mayberry in making the announcement. “Mike Joy, John Holland, Charlie Holland and the entire crew at New England Race Fuels have played a major role in the growth of our organization from a single northern New England based tour to five individual series with races from Florida to Maritime Canada. As we expanded to the southeast we have had tremendous support from Sunoco distributors such as Hank Thomas Performance, and the fact that most every race track where we compete pumps Sunoco Race Fuel makes it a perfect partnership, one that we hope will continue for many years to come.”

Shaw Makes Last Lap Pass To Win
9th Annual Easter Bunny 150 At Hickory
HICKORY, NC (April 20) – New Hampsire’s DJ Shaw parlayed an aggressive move on the final lap into the win in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model 9th Annual Easter Bunny 150 Sunday afternoon at Hickory Motor Speedway. Shaw and PASS South points leader Tyler Church made contact entering turn three allowing Shaw to move by and claim his first PASS South Super Late Model win. The race was delayed for nearly 24 hours after torrential rains drenched the Southeast on Saturday.

“I got a little more aggressive there than usual, but I lost this race last year with Preston [Peltier] for letting him be aggressive with me,” said Shaw after his first career Easter Bunny 150 triumph. “It’s great to win at a historic place like Hickory and I just have to thank the fans and PASS for getting it in today and supporting us on Easter.”

In qualifying, Preston Peltier claimed his 13th career quick qualifying time and fifth overall at Hickory with a lap of 80.816 miles per hour. Following the top 10 qualifiers redraw, Peltier dropped to second alongside Jared Irvan, who would start from the pole.

Under beautiful Carolina blue skies, Irvan jumped into the lead as the 30 car field of PASS Super Late Models entered turn one. On lap five, Trevor Sanborn slid sideways after contact from Harrison Burton entering turn one. Several cars checked up to avoid the incident with the machines of Brandon Ward, Ryan Moore, Brandon Setzer, and Patrick Staropoli all ending up with too much damage to continue on in the race.

When racing resumed, Irvan and Peltier traded the lead, before 10th place starter Randy Gentry made his way to the front on lap 15. The second caution of the race waved a few laps later on lap 33 when Lee Tissot and Nick Tucker spun in turn four.

Back under green, fans were treated to some of the best short track racing around as drivers jockeyed for position, racing two and three wide several rows deep around the historic .363 mile speedway. Gentry set a quick pace early on stretching his lead to nearly a straightaway over his nearest competitors. But, just past halfway, Gentry’s Toyota began to fade allowing Roger Lee Newton to move by and into the lead on lap 80.

Likewise, Newton’s car also seemed to be going away as Burton moved by to take the lead on lap 92 for the first time in his PASS South career. Rookie Tyler Dippel began applying pressure on Burton in the latter stages of the race, taking the lead with 37 laps to go when Burton bobbled exiting turn four. Racing continued to be torrid as Dippel worked multiple grooves around the speedway to hold off his challengers. With 10 laps to go, Burton moved by Dippel to retake the lead. But his turn up front would be short lived as DJ Shaw powered past Burton to take the lead just two laps later.

However, the caution would wave with 5 laps to go following a flat right front tire for Daniel Hemric. On the final restart of the race, Tyler Church got the advantage over Shaw to take the lead entering turn one. Shaw closed back in making contact with Church on the final lap as they entered turn three and survived more contact coming to the checkered flag to secure the win.

Following the race, Church was clearly frustrated after just missing out on his second straight win at his home track.

“We had that race and I tried to race everybody clean, but sometimes it doesn’t pay off,” said Church afterwards.

Following Shaw and Church at the finish were Peltier, Irvan, and Dippel. Rounding out the top ten were Newton, Sanborn, Cole Timm, Trevor Noles, and Austin Theriault.

Walker Yates took the lead from race long leader Jeff Batten on a late race restart with 13 laps to go and held on for his second career PASS Pro Late Model victory. The most serious accident of the race occurred on lap 29 when Austin Reed made contact with Jacob Schneider exiting turn four. The contact sent Schneider spinning and collected Reed and Lucas Jones in the aftermath. Following Yates and Batten at the checkered flag were Kodie Conner, Schneider, and Erik Nash.

Matt Craig led every lap en route to the win in the Legends division over Austin Osborne, AJ Davis, Sam McAulay, and Greg Lang.

The PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models will be in action along with the USAC HPD Midget Series on Friday night May 9 at Ace Speedway for the Ace’s High 150.

Church Looking To Defend Home Turf
At Hickory In Easter Bunny 150
CHARLOTTE, NC (April 16) – The best short track racers from across North America will once again be descending on Hickory Motor Speedway this weekend as they prepare for the 9th Annual Easter Bunny 150. Racers flock to the legendary speedway nestled in the North Carolina Piedmont as the Easter Bunny 150 has become an Easter weekend tradition for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model division. Likewise, fans of short track racing recognize the Easter Bunny 150 as one of the sport’s premier races, thanks in large part to the star studded field of drivers the event attracts year after year.

Names like Rowe, Lawler, Williams, Naase, and Grissom have all visited victory lane in the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory. And, until last year’s win by Preston Peltier, no driver had achieved victory in racing’s ultimate Easter egg hunt more than once. But, even with the best the sport has to offer coming to duke it out against one another, it is a home grown product of Hickory Motor Speedway that some have circled on their entry lists as the early favorite.

Current PASS South Super Late Model points leader Tyler Church is actually from Hickory, NC. He started out as a fan attending races at Hickory Motor Speedway and, after becoming a race car driver, became a top contender in the track’s Limited Late Model division. Eventually, Church joined forces with Peltier competing on limited basis with PASS South in 2013. But, despite only making sporadic starts with the series, Church became an immediate front runner scoring an emotional win in the Over The Mountain 150 at Hickory. A win made even more special in that it came in front of longtime fans, family, and friends that had supported his journey up the racing ladder. And, by the fact, that his late mother is buried in the cemetery which overlooks the historic speedway.

“It was huge to get that win at Hickory last September,” said Church, who went on to capture his second career win just weeks later in the Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National. “I’ve had a lot of help since I began racing with PASS and being at home, it was just huge. I’m just very thankful and then to win the Meltdown was just a bonus.”

Despite not winning so far in 2014, Church and his Church’s Carpet team have been the model of consistency. The young season has seen steady improvement for Church, including two top five finishes, a third at Dillon Motor Speedway in March and a runner-up finish in the most recent PASS South event at Orange County Speedway. Now as one of the biggest races of the season approaches at, of all places, his home track, Church is brimming with confidence. All that despite the stellar field that will try to keep him from reaching victory lane at Hickory Motor Speedway for a second straight time.

“Going to Hickory, it’s gonna be tough for sure, but I think we will be okay,” said Church. “I was hoping to have a win by now, but this year was my first time at Greenville. And, at Dillon and Orange County, I was tickled to get a couple of top fives with the competition we had at those two tracks. But all I want is that Easter Bunny, that’s it.”

Church will certainly have his work cut out for him though this weekend as the strongest group of Super Late Models of the year will assemble at Hickory Motor Speedway. Fellow PASS South points contenders Cole Timm, Jared Irvan, Trevor Noles and Tyler Dippel have filed entries. As is usual for the Easter Bunny 150, a strong contingent of Northern drivers will be making the trip down to Hickory including Ben Rowe, DJ Shaw, Joey Doiron, Austin Theriault, Trevor Sanborn, Ryan Moore and Canadian Steve Laking. Jay Fogleman returns to the driver’s seat at Hickory along with his son, Tate, as they carry the banner for Bull City Race Cars and Speedco Truck Lube & Tire. Daniel Hemric returns to PASS after winning the first two events of the season as well as two-time Easter Bunny 150 winner Preston Peltier. Harrison Burton and Gus Dean will also be back as they make their second attempts in PASS for 2014. Former PASS South winner Clay Rogers returns as well for the first time since South Boston in 2013. Veteran Randy Gentry will be looking to bounce back after a tough run at Orange County along with fellow South Carolina drivers Ted Mickelson and Clete Caywood. Veterans Jody Measamer, Brandon Ward, Joe Heigl, and John Batten hope to get their seasons turned around. Florida’s Patrick Staropoli will be stepping in to the Jimmy Doyle owned #71 and will be joined by fellow Sunshine State driver Joey Padgett in making their first Easter Bunny 150 attempts this weekend. Local favorite Brandon Setzer will also be making his first attempt at qualifying along with fellow rookie Tanner Rumburg.

OPS RESCHEDULES PASS NORTH SEASON OPENER TO SATURDAY, APRIL 26TH
GIANT DOUBLEHEADER WEEKEND NOW ON TAP
t’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 Ripley and Fletcher Ford 150 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.

For more information visit the OPS website at www.oxfordplains.com.

For ticket purchasing and other info call the Track hotline at 207-539-8865. Oxford Plains Speedway is located on Route 26 in Oxford, Maine.The Track office is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm.
 

PASS SOUTH TECH BULLETIN
- CRATE MOTORS -

.
> 2700 lbs: GM 604 400 fast burn sealed crate engine with 650 cfm. Carburetor.

For some race teams and motor builders that feel that they may make some modification to the 604 crate motor, whether a performance gain or not, everyone needs to realize that there is a zero tolerance in the PASS rule book. The PASS rule book clearly states at 2700 lbs the motor must be run with no modifications or changes. To run at 2750 lbs you may do the following only.

> GM crate (spec) engine in sealed factory form permitted. Permitted with 1.6 Rocker change – “Bee-Hive” valve springs - Balancer change – 6 ½ deep wet sump oil pan change. At competition weight of 2750 lbs.

No modifications permitted other than specified.

If any other modifications to your crate motor are made, it must be declared ahead of time and weight must be 2800 lbs. Any violation for crate motors for these rules is disqualification and loss of engine.

The idea behind the crate motors was to give a weight break and give a more economical way to race, not to have motor builders charge you an excessive amount of money to make further changes to the crate motors.

As far as PASS South Pro Late Models, your crate motors are 100% stock from GM, no modifications.

We had a PASS race team that got so close to the line that they stepped over it, whether performance enhanced or not. PASS has a zero tolerance in this matter.

Newton Takes PASS South Thriller
at Orange County Speedway
ROUGEMONT, NC (April 5) – Roger Lee Newton held off a furious last lap charge by Trevor Noles that saw Noles spin across the finish line to win the 9th Annual Orange Blossom Special Saturday night for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models at Orange County Speedway. Newton’s second Orange Blossom Special victory puts him in elite company joining Preston Peltier as the only drivers to ever win the event more than once.

“I don’t know what it is about this place, but I love it,” said Newton after ending a winless streak dating back to 2011. “He (Noles) hit me, but that’s racing. It’s the last lap and you do anything to win. When he hit me, I just nailed the gas and it stuck. I don’t know what to say, I just can’t believe it.”

In qualifying, PASS South Super Late Model points leader Tyler Church edged out his car owner Peltier for the quick time with a lap of 97.826 miles per hour. Following the top ten qualifiers redraw, Church settled back into the seventh starting position while Newton and Brandon Ward moved to the front row.

At the drop of the green flag, Newton jumped out into the lead, but his time up front was short lived as Trevor Noles sped by to take the top spot on lap four. A race long battle would ensue throughout the event between Noles and Newton for the lead.
The driver on the move early on was Harrison Burton, making his first PASS South start at a track his father, Jeff, competed on many times early on in his racing career. After starting 11th, Burton had made his way around Derek Ramstrom for fourth just 14 laps into the race.

Following a spin by Tanner Rumburg in turn one on lap 30, the first major accident of the night occurred on the ensuing restart when Randy Gentry spun in turn three and collected Bill Catania and Kevin Powell. All three drivers would be through for the night.

On each restart of the night, Newton was able to get the best of Noles and lead for a couple of laps before Noles would overtake him on the longer runs of the race.

Just past halfway, veterans Brandon Ward and Preston Peltier saw their potentially strong runs come to an end. With 59 laps to go, Ward and Peltier made contact entering turn three while battling for third and their machines became momentarily stuck together. As their cars slowed, several cars crashed while trying to avoid them including Joe Heigl, rookie Trey Jarrell and local favorite Chad Kendrick. Both Ward and Peltier continued until Peltier broke a part entering turn 1 on lap 97 and backed his car into the wall. Ward eventually fell out due to steering problems.

Derek Ramstrom and Jody Measamer also had problems late in the race that ended their nights early. Ramstrom struggled with ignition problems before backing into the turn three wall on lap 121. Just three laps later, Measamer pounded the turn one wall after it appeared that his throttle stuck.

On the final restart of the race with 26 laps to go, Newton again got the advantage over Noles. With Newton content to run the high line around the 3/8 mile, high-banked speedway, Noles would draw alongside in the low groove lap after lap. As Newton and Noles raced for the lead, Church methodically made his way to third and was gaining on the leaders.

As the three leaders took the white flag, Newton and Noles raced side-by-side for the win with Church close behind. Entering turn three, Noles drove down deep into the corner pushing up into Newton as they exited turn four. Newton held on to take the victory as Noles spun across the finish line falling to third in the finishing order behind Church. Tyler Dippel finished fourth for his best career PASS South Super Late Model finish in front of Cole Timm who finished fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Burton, Brandon Setzer, Steve Halpin, Tate Fogleman, and Tanner Rumburg.

Lucas Jones took the lead from Greg Bohannon, Jr. with two laps to go and went on to win his first career PASS Pro Late Model race. Early race leaders Kodie Conner and Walker Yates were eliminated on lap 16 in a grinding crash in turn four. Following Jones and Bohannon at the checkered flag were Jacob Schneider, Matt Murphy, and Zachary Dabbs.

Alex Pacheco led every lap en route to the win in the Legends division over Dillon Spain, Grayson Massey, Jake Spillers, and Brandon McKenzie.

The PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models will be in action along with the Super Cup Stock Car Series and Legends cars on Saturday night April 19 at Hickory Motor Speedway for the 9th Annual Easter Bunny 150.

2014 PASS NORTH SLM TITLE WIDE OPEN
By all indications, the 2014 PASS North Super Late Model title will be up for grabs in 2014, as many of the biggest names in the sport will be trying to knock 2013 champion, Cassius Clark from the top spot on the podium in what could be the most competitive year for the PASS Tour in the history of the Series.

Coming off from the most incredible PASS North season yet in 2013, Cassius Clark is ready, willing and able to take on all challengers and defend his title in 2014. Last year Clark edged out youngster Joey Doiron by a mere three points for the championship. If that wasn’t close enough, DJ Shaw settled for third place in the championship battle, just five points behind Clark. This trio of drivers is all gearing up for the year with high hopes of capturing the coveted PASS North title. Cassius Clark and Doiron towed south for the PASS South opener at Greenville Pickens Speedway located in Easley, South Carolina trying to get an edge on other PASS North competitors. That was also a PASS National Championship event. Clark and Doiron each had a pair of wins in 2013, while Shaw had the most wins on the Tour with three.

Along with the top three teams, coming back for 2014 are other notables such as Johnny Clark and Ben Rowe. Both of these teams struggled in 2013, but have high hopes for the upcoming season. Clark has been working feverishly on his ride and thinks that they found several problems during the off-season, and have corrected them. Rowe feels the same way as he is excited about getting back on the track and putting 2013 behind him. Rowe also headed south to Greenville Pickens for the season opening event and recorded a fourth place finish. Both of these former championship teams feel that they will be contenders again for the 2014 title.

2013 Oxford 250 winner Travis Benjamin is always a contender to win the title as the 2012 PASS North champion will start his season at Oxford and Beech Ridge and then make a decision to run for the title after those two events. Benjamin is always a threat to win, and placed fourth in last year’s final standings. He too collected a pair of victories in 2013.

A solid contingent of drivers will be returning to PASS North competition in 2014 including such names as Richie Dearborn, and Glen Luce as well as many other familiar drivers. Newcomers include Wayne Helliwell Jr., Brent Dragon, Travis Stearns, Bobby Therrien plus several others.

The 2014 PASS North season is scheduled to kick into high gear on Saturday, April 12th for the Ripley & Fletcher Ford 150. Joining the PASS Super Late Models, PASS Mods, and PASS Sportsman will be the NELCAR Legends. Rain date for the event will be Sunday, April 13th. With the scheduled early start for the PASS North Series, the date of April 26th has been reserved just in case the grounds are not ready for the opener.
 



EMMA LIBBY READY TO EMBARK ON
PASS SPORTSMAN CAREER
When you first look at this petite, sweet, innocent, sixteen year old blonde named Emma Libby, you say to yourself, there is a very athletic young lady that is quite shy, and reserved. WHOAAAA! This young lady is a racer true and true, and one to be reckoned with, backing off from nobody.

Libby who is a sophomore at Orono High School is working feverishly with her family as they prepare to take on the challenging PASS Sportsman class in 2014. Emma has already had a successful career at Speedway 95 as she was the 2012 champion in their highly competitive Mini-Stock division, and graduated to their Street Stock class in 2013 and placed a respectable 5th in the final point standings. For 2014 her plan is to run the full PASS Sportsman schedule, as well as compete in the Speedway 95 Sportsman class when time allows.

Libby works daily in the family business after school, and also is learning the racing parts business that the family has recently added. This works out well as she gets a better understanding about the parts in a racecar, and also how they work. She spends every possible minute working race related deals, and when the store closes down, it’s garage time with her dad, Ed Libby. Their immaculate PASS Sportsman car was built by her and her dad, and she has loved and appreciated every minute in the garage with her father. She is definitely dad’s little princess.

Emma has set some solid goals for herself and the team in 2014. She wants to be competitive every time she hits the track, and she is hoping for some top five, and top three finishes, and who knows, maybe even a win. Her long term goals include graduating up to a PASS Super Late Model, and then maybe some PASS South racing, and maybe advance to a bigger world. All in all Emma Libby is looking forward to making a big splash in her PASS Sportsman, and she very well may achieve some, if not most of her goals in 2014. Emma is her name, and racing is her game!

The PASS NORTH Tour kicks open their doors at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, April 12th at 2 PM.
 
PASS Pro Late Models: Perimeter Or Straight Rail – Which Will Take The Title In 2014?
CHARLOTTE, NC (January 23) – Since its inception in 2012, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Pro Late Model division has been all about creating another avenue for up-and-coming racers to take their next steps up the racing ladder. But, it has also been about inclusion. A division where a straight rail chassis, like the PASS South Super Late Models, or a perimeter chassis, those mainly utilized by Late Model Stock racers, can compete together on a level playing field. And the results speak for themselves.

In the inaugural season for the PASS Pro Late Model division in 2012, perimeters and straight rails went head-to-head. Veteran Clay Thomas won the series first ever race at Dillon Motor Speedway and Lexington, SC’s Austin Leitner had multiple wins en route to the championship. Both while driving perimeter machines. Along the way, youngsters like Tate Fogelman and Cole Timm showed their prowess with wins driving straight rails. Last year, Trevor Noles and Harrison Burton dominated the division also driving straight rails. So, which combination will come out on top in 2014?

The PASS Pro Late Model division utilizes a limited tire usage rule and places restrictions on engines and shocks. The division provides an avenue for racers to compete at many of the same tracks that the PASS South Super Late Models compete on. The PASS Pro Late Models will race 13 times in conjunction with the PASS South Super Late Model division this year. Also in 2014, the Ford McGunegill crate engine has been made legal for competition. Additionally, former UARA-STARS Late Model competitors are invited to compete with the PASS Pro Late Models with minor modifications to their machines.

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 the Florida Winter Meltdown at New Smyrna Speedway, the 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.

PASS Finalizes National Championship
Series Schedule
Provisional Starting Spots for Highest Non-qualified Points Contenders in the 41st Annual Oxford 250, Paying $25,000 to the Race Winner
3rd Leg of Autobus La Quebecois Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudiere Will Bring PASS National Series To Canada Again
Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Continues Tradition as Spring’s Premier Super Late Model Event
NAPLES, ME (January 22) – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced that a slate of select races have been set to comprise the 2014 PASS National Championship Series. Six PASS races spanning the Southeast, New England, and Canada will be featured once again to crown Super Late Model racing’s only true national champion. The tracks selected to host PASS National Championship races in 2014 will be Greenville-Pickens Speedway, Hickory Motor Speedway, Oxford Plains Speedway, Autodrome Chaudiere, Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, and Southern National Raceway Park. While awards are still being finalized with sponsors, the 2014 PASS National Champion will once again be presented with a diamond encrusted championship ring from long time series supporter Northern Race Tire. Former PASS National Champions include Cassius Clark, Ben Rowe, Preston Peltier, and Jay Fogleman.

“We’re very happy to once again bring the PASS National Championship Series to some of North America’s most legendary short tracks in 2014,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “Since 2008, we’ve been able to bring some of America’s greatest short track racers together to compete for the PASS National Championship. We feel the tracks that have been selected this year will provide a true test of man and machine throughout the season and will provide some truly exciting events for our race fans.”

After the season opener at Greenville-Pickens on March 1, it is back to the most traditional stop on the PASS National Series at Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina on April 19. Hickory’s Easter Bunny 150 has grown to be one of short track racing’s biggest events of the Spring. Since veteran Mike Rowe won the first Easter Bunny back in 2006, Hickory Motor Speedway’s hallowed victory lane has been one cherished by every Super Late Model driver that has followed in his tire tracks.

Race three of the 2013 PASS National Series will be, at perhaps, the most legendary of all short track races. The 41st Annual Oxford 250 at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on July 20 will once again bring the best short track drivers from across North America together to compete for $25,000 to win. With nearly 70 Super Late Models in attendance last year, points provisionals following New Smyrna and Hickory will be at a premium. The list of past winners reads like a “who’s who” in stock car racing and includes such names as Lindley, Bodine, Hanley, Craven, Rowe, Harvick, Busch and last year’s winner, Travis Benjamin. With $25,000 in lap leader money in addition to the race purse, this year’s Oxford 250 winner could take home upwards of $50,000.

Next up, will be back-to-back PASS National Series races in the month of September. The PASS National Series returns to Canada’s Autodrome Chaudiere on September 6. The 200 lap race will serve as the final event of the Autobus La Quebecoise Triple Crown, a “mini-series” of the three PASS North races at Autodrome Chaudiere with a separate bonus points fund for drivers who compete in all three events there. Last year, Ross Kenseth took the checkered flag in the finale, while 6-time PASS North champion Johnny Clark came out on top in the Triple Crown.

The following week the PASS National Series returns to another traditional stop in New England, the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME. The PASS 400 Weekend at Beech Ridge on September 12-13 is always a favorite for both fans and competitors and this year’s contest will be no different.

Finally, the PASS National Series will conclude on November 15 at Southern National Motorsports Park with the 9th Annual Mason Dixon Meltdown. The 200 lap test on Southern National’s fast, high banks will once again crown both the PASS National Series and PASS South Super Late Model champions.

TIM BRACKETT FILES FIRST ENTRY
FOR 2014 OXFORD 250
With the 2014 edition of the Oxford 250 lurking just over the horizon on July 20, 2014, the first entrant has filed his application for the crown jewel event. Buckfield, Maine’s, Tim Brackett has filed the number one entry and is very proud to be the first entrant of this year’s edition.

“We have been in the sport of auto racing since 1978, the 52 year old racer explained. We love racing as a family here at the Track, and always look forward to the Oxford 250. We had a great run in 2013, and can’t wait for the big race in 2014. I finished sixth last year, and can hopefully crack at least a top five this year!”

Brackett has a pair of OPS championships under his belt, the 2005 Pro Stock title, and the 2010 Late Model championship, and has great family ties with Oxford, as his son TJ won the Pro Late Model championship in 2013, and finished 14th in last year’s 250, while Tim placed second in the final standings, and Tim’s daughter Vanna finished third in the standings, and also was the first female to win a premiere division feature at Oxford. The family also set a record for the first time a family finished one, two & three in the Track’s premiere division’s final point standings.

This year’s edition of the Oxford 250 will take place on the July 17th to July 20th weekend. There will be a special night of racing on Thursday, July 17th, as the schedule for that day’s events will be announced in the near future. Friday night will be Sun Journal Newspaper night featuring the PASS Mods, PASS Sportsman and several other support divisions. Dunkin’ Donuts headlines Saturday’s huge card of racing with Round #2 of the new PASS Northeast Late Model Series going 125 laps for $4,000 to win, or the option of taking $3,000 to win and having a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday’s Oxford 250. Joining the PASS Northeast Late Model Series will be NEMA Midgets, The NEMA Lites, Northeast Classic Lites Dwarf Cars, Wicked Good Vintage Racing and support divisions. The granddaddy of them all, the Oxford 25, headlines the giant weekend of racing as Super Late Models from throughout the United States and Canada will converge on Oxford Plains Speedway’s 3/8 mile speed plant for the giant purse that will await the winner after 250 green flag laps of racing. The day will also feature a 75 lap, $1,000 to win PASS Mod event plus Street Stocks and a 50 lap NELCAR Legends National Championship event.
 
PASS LAUNCHING NORTHEAST
LATE MODEL SERIES IN 2014
PASS President Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce a brand new series for Late Models which will be unveiled at Oxford Plains Speedway in 2014. The division will race three times this season at OPS with the possibility of a full fledged Late Model Series developing in 2015.

Mayberry explains, “The timing is right for a new Late Model Series to be developed and implemented on a test basis in 2014. There are tons of Late Models just sitting idle, and several other tracks, and series cars will be able to participate as well. We have developed a universal set of rules that will just about encompass any racecars with just minimal changes. We will be debuting the PASS Northeast Late Model Series at Oxford on Friday, June 13, 2014 with a 100 lap, $2,000 to win main event. Round number two will take place on the Saturday of the Oxford 250 weekend, July 19th. This race will feature a 125 lap main event paying $4,000 to win, or $3,000 and a guaranteed provisional for the Oxford 250 on Sunday. The final event of the Series will take place on the PASS Championship Weekend at OPS, which is slated for September 26th and 27th. This race will also feature a $2,000 to win, 100 lap main event. We are all excited about launching the PASS Northeast Late Model Series, and have a very good feeling that this Series will be very successful. The Late Model Series will carry the PASS banner in 2014. If the initial endeavor is successful than we will look to expand the Series in 2015.”

PASS to Allow
Ford McGunegill
Crate Engines in

Pro Late Models
in 2014
CHARLOTTE, NC (January 9) – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today that the Ford McGunegill crate engine will be legal for competition in the PASS Pro Late Model division in 2014. Cars using a 4412 carburetor must weigh 2950 pounds and those using the 350 cfm. 2 barrel holley HP carburetor must weigh 2925 pounds.

“We tested this configuration for the Ford McGunegill crate engine at Southern National in November and we were pleased with the results,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “We’ve had a lot of interest from teams that have the Ford McGunegill crate and we feel that this will only add to the great competition we saw last year out of the PASS Pro Late Models.”

The PASS Pro Late Model division utilizes cars similar to the PASS South Super Late Models with a limited tire usage rule and restrictions on engines and shocks. The division provides an avenue for racers to compete at many of the same tracks that the PASS South Super Late Models compete on and serves as a stepping stone for drivers looking to make the next step in their racing careers. In 2014, the PASS Pro Late Models will race 13 times in conjunction with the PASS South Super Late Model division.

Unique Awards Going To 2013 PASS
Super Late Model Champions
NAPLES, ME (December 16) – The Pro All Stars Series (PASS), in association with series supporter Northern Race Tire, will be presenting a unique set of awards to the each of the division’s Super Late Model Champions. The 2013 PASS National, PASS North, and PASS South Super Late Model Champions will each be presented with diamond encrusted championship rings in recognition of their hard work during the racing season. In addition, the PASS Pro Late Model, PASS Modified, and PASS Sportsman champions will also receive championship rings, similar in design, but unique to honor their championship seasons.

The PASS Champions’ rings are manufactured and designed by Stylecraft. From Super Bowl rings to civic awards, Stylecraft has been making fine jewelry handcrafted in the United States for over six decades. The 2013 PASS Champions’ rings will be massive in size and will be emblazoned with the PASS logo and other jewels. Additionally, each member of the championship winning teams will also be presented with one-of-a-kind PASS Championship belt buckles to commemorate their accomplishments.

Durham, NC’s Jay Fogleman and Farmington, ME’s Cassius Clark will be the first recipients of racing’s newest annual award. In what he has said was his final season racing for a championship, Fogleman competed for multiple teams on the way to his second straight PASS National Championship and was also able to claim his first PASS South Super Late Model Championship. Like Fogleman, Clark was finally able to take his first PASS North Super Late Model title after years of trying.

“We are very excited to be giving this opportunity to North America’s best Super Late Model racers,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “Jay Fogleman and Cassius Clark exemplify everything PASS stands for and no matter where they go, these rings will stand as a symbol of the hard work and dedication it took to achieve one of short track racing’s ultimate goals.”

In 2014, PASS and Northern Race Tire will once again present each of the series Super Late Model champions with custom rings and belt buckles in recognition of their hard work and sacrifices.
