Naples, ME – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today an additional event for the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway slated for Saturday, March 30. The PASS National Championship Super Late Models will headline the Commonwealth Classic and will now feature a Super Late Model Open race, along with a race for Stock Crate Super Late Models. Both races will be 75 laps and will pay $7,000 to win and $700 to start. For drivers opting to compete in both events, they will be allowed to use their highest finish to count towards the 2019 PASS National Championship.
"We originally looked at making this a race for Stock Crates only, but we received an overwhelming amount of feedback from teams with built, spec and other types of engine combinations so we decided to have two separate races," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "In the end, the fans are definitely the biggest winners. Now instead of seeing five events, they will have six great races to watch at Richmond. It makes this weekend of grassroots racing even bigger."
In addition to the Twin 75s for the PASS Super Late Models, fans will see another 75-lapper for the Tour-Type Modifieds in their return to Richmond Raceway for the first time since 2002. Additionally, the MASS Street Stocks will race for 40 laps in their first trip to Richmond, while the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will race for 65 laps. And, the 4-Cylinders will complete this amazing night of grassroots short track racing.
Entry forms for the PASS Super Late Model, Tour-Type Modifieds, and MASS Street Stocks, along with 2019 license forms and Richmond garage stall reservation forms, are now available at ProAllStarsSeries.com. ACT Late Model teams can find entry forms at acttour.com and 4-Cylinder entry forms are available northeastministocktour.com.
