For the first time since the 2014 season, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models will be returning to Orange County Speedway (NC) on Saturday, March 25 for the original Orange Blossom Special. While there will be nothing like being at the track to watch the exciting racing on the 3/8-mile, high-banked oval, Speed51.com and PASS officials are pleased to announced that the race will be broadcast live on Speed51.com for those who can’t make it to the track.
“It’s going to be a great race, great event and we’re glad that Speed51.com can be there,” said Alan Dietz of the Pro All Stars Series. “It’s the first night race of 2017 for our series. There are a lot of things to be excited about for Orange County.”
The Orange Blossom Special will serve as the second race of the PASS National Championship Series, matching up the best from both the north and south.
PASS North stars such as four-time national champion Ben Rowe, New Hampshire’s Derek Griffith and former Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) track champion Dave Farrington, Jr are all expected to make the trip to Rougemont, North Carolina. They will be joined by stars from the south including defending PASS South champion Matt Craig, Georgia’s Spencer Davis and 2016 USAC Midget champion Tanner Thorson.
“Since the announcement that PASS would be returning to Orange County, we’ve had many people from the Northeast ask us if they’d be able to watch this race on Speed51.com,” said Brandon Paul, Editor for Speed51.com. “We’re very excited to have a great working relationship with PASS that will allow us to bring this race to people who would otherwise be unable to witness it.”
Adding even more excitement to the Orange Blossom Special is the fact that the race serves as the first Road to the Oxford 250 qualifier. With the Oxford 250 being one of the hardest short track events to qualify for in the country, the guaranteed starting spot will be highly sought after at Orange County.
Joining the PASS Super Late Models on the schedule will be the Tour-type Modifieds from the Southern Modified Racing Series. Now operating as the sole Tour-type Modified traveling series in the southeast region, the ground-pounders are sure to add plenty of excitement for those watching at home.
“We are really excited because this is the only time in 2017 that you’ll be able to catch the PASS South Super Late Models and the SMRS Tour (type) Modifieds together,” Dietz said. “If I’m not mistaken, it’s the first time the Modifieds have raced at Orange County in several years.”
Fans will be able to watch all of the PASS South and SMRS action for the low price of just $19.99. Speed51 Network yearly subscribers will receive an additional 10% discount off their pay-per-view purchase.
The live broadcast of the Orange Blossom Special will be a one-camera feed with audio from Dietz, the voice of the Pro All Stars Series. There will be a 150-mile blackout surrounding Rougemont, North Carolina.
