Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North, North East Mini Stock Tour and New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials announced today a short track racing event that will take place at “The Magic Mile” on July 4-5. Headlining the card will be the Super Late Models from the PASS North and South tours. The event will be considered a PASS National Championship race encouraging competitors from both tours to compete at the one-mile oval.
“We could not be more thrilled than to announce this historic partnership with the folks at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “This event really came together in a short period of time, but we wanted to make sure our fans and competitors knew as soon as possible. We will have much more information about the race coming out within the next couple of weeks.”
The event at NHMS will mark PASS’ first visit to a track one-mile or larger in length. It will supplant North Carolina’s North Wilkesboro Speedway as the largest track the PASS Super Late Models have ever competed on.
Joining PASS will be the rapidly expanding North East Mini Stock Tour headed by promoter Bob Guptil. Guptil’s tour raced at NHMS in 2014 and due to the high-demand from his competitors to return to the track, he worked with PASS promoter Tom Mayberry and track officials to put the event together.
“I’m very excited to be able to bring our competitors back to the Magic Mile again this season,” said Guptil. “This should be a thrilling event for short track race fans in our region.”
NEMST’s return trip to the Loudon, New Hampshire oval promises to be bigger and better with $1,000 being awarded to the race winner. $6,800 will be distributed to the 43-car field at the end of the event.
Both series will have an open practice day on July 4 to allow competitors to dial in their machines at “The Magic Mile.” On July 5, PASS Super Late Models will compete in a 50 or 75 lap feature depending upon the results of a tire test to be held in May.
Northeast Mini Stock Tour drivers will compete in a 30-lap feature that day and a 35-lap Super Sportsman race will be held as well.
Racing action is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 5 with the PASS Super Late Models going green at approximately 4 PM.
The 2015 PASS season will get underway on Saturday, March 7 when the PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models take to Dillon Motor Speedway for the 10th Annual South Carolina Clash. The PASS North Super Late Model season is slated to start on Saturday, April 18 with the Ripley & Fletcher Ford 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway.
