NAPLES, ME – While the 2019 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model calendar is winding down, there are still three big events left to decide who the champions will be. The PASS Modified champion will be crowned on Saturday, October 19 at Oxford Plains Speedway as the Maine racing season concludes with the PASS 400 weekend. The PASS North Super Late Model title will be decided at Oxford Plains and with the season finale at Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, October 26. And, the PASS National Championship will go down to the wire at Seekonk and the much-anticipated return to racing at Georgia’s Lanier Raceplex.
The PASS 400 weekend at Oxford Plains will see a big Saturday of action featuring the Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150 for the PASS North Super Late Models, plus a $1000 to win feature for the PASS Modifieds and action for the ACT Flying Tigers, Bandits, and Street Stocks. The 2019 PASS Modified season has seen a resurgence in the division with increased car counts and seven different winners so far this year. The race for the title will come down to points leader, Spencer Morse, Jairet Harrison, and Mike Carignan.
The battle for the Northeast’s most prestigious Super Late Model championship has come down to four drivers, all within 100 points of one another. New Hampshire’s DJ Shaw looks to defend his title from a year ago, knowing that a bad finish could prove disastrous with big fields expected at Oxford Plains and Seekonk. Fellow Granite Stater, Derek Griffith, has come on strong during the second half of the season and now sits just nine points behind Shaw. Ben Rowe’s streak of having never missed a PASS North race since the series began in 2001 continues as he seeks his fifth North title. While rookie, Gabe Brown, is still in contention for his first series championship.
Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway will hold the PASS NORTH season finale on Saturday, October 29 and it will double as the penultimate race of the PASS National Championship season which will be decided in November at Lanier. PASS will be part of a big show at Seekonk which will also feature The Haunted Hundred for the Tri-Track Open Modified Series and a $2000 to win Late Model event.
It will all conclude with one of the most anticipated events of the season when PASS brings racing back to Lanier Raceplex for the first time in nearly a decade. The Lanier National 200 will crown the 2019 PASS National Champion and, hopefully, start a new fall tradition at Lanier. Richmond Raceway winner, Mike Hopkins, sits 37 points ahead of defending national champion, Derek Griffith, while Travis Benjamin, Ben Rowe, Ray Christian, III, and Jake Johnson still have a shot at the title. In addition to the PASS Super Late Models at Lanier, Legends cars will return to the 3/8-mile speedway with Pros/Masters, Semi-Pros, and Young Lions, along with Bandoleros as well.
