NAPLES, ME — Following a successful start to the season, which has seen the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) average over 30 Super Late Models through the first three events of the year, the best short trackers in America are now preparing for a big month of April.
With three southern races under their belts, PASS is set to embark on the start of the north season, kicking off on April 9-10 with the Icebreaker at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut. In addition to being the first race of 2016 for the PASS North Super Late Models, the Icebreaker will serve as race three of the PASS National Championship Series. Following last weekend’s Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway, former Thompson Speedway track champion Derek Ramstrom leads the national standings by two points over Ben Rowe and Mike Hopkins and just six points over Jeremy Davis. In total, 10 drivers are within 100 points of one another as the PASS National Championship Series reaches its halfway mark at Thompson.
From Thompson, the PASS North Super Late Model season will crank up with the Speedway Homes 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, April 17. It will be the first of four starts for the stars of PASS leading up to the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 on August 26-28. Several new driver/team combinations will be coming together for the first time this season in PASS North’s home base of Maine. Defending HP Hood Oxford 250 winner, Glen Luce, will be looking to continue his magic at Oxford Plains, while Mike and Ben Rowe, DJ Shaw, Travis Benjamin, Johnny Clark, Joey Doiron and others look to establish themselves as the one to beat heading towards the 250. Plus, the ACT Late Models will compete in the Husqvarna 100 Presented By Dave’s Small Engines and the PASS Modifieds will be in action to complete this big weekend of racing.
On that same weekend, back down south, the PASS South Super Late Models will be back in action on Saturday, April 16 with a big 150 lapper at Caraway Speedway near Asheboro, NC. PASS South is in the midst of another great points battle among three young stars. Rookie Kodie Conner continues to lead the standings, now by six points over Matt Craig and just 10 points over defending PASS South Super Late Model champion, Tate Fogleman. In addition to the PASS South action at Caraway Speedway, the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will compete for 150 laps, along with the Limited Late Models, Chargers, Mini Stocks, and Hornets.
