Naples, ME – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today the final three dates on the 2016 PASS South Super Late Model schedule. The South’s longest running Super Late Model series will return to Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina, while Hickory Motor Speedway will receive a third PASS South Super Late Model event in the fall of 2016. East Carolina Motor Speedway in Robersonville, NC joins the
PASS South schedule for the first time in 2016 and will fill out the 11thanniversary season’s slate of races. The 2016 season will consist of 15 races at 8 speedways in three states.
Anderson Motor Speedway in upstate South Carolina will host the PASS South Super Late Models on Friday night, June 17 in an action filled night which will also see the NASCAR Late Model Stocks, BM Modifieds, Legends, and Front Wheel Drive divisions in action. It will be a busy doubleheader weekend for the PASS South racers, who will also compete the following night at Hickory Motor Speedway.
Speaking of Hickory Motor Speedway, the legendary track which has operated since 1951, will host the PASS South Super Late Models three times in 2016. PASS returns to its longest running speedway on Saturday night, September 24, joining the previously announced 11th Annual Easter Bunny 150 on Saturday, March 26 and the event scheduled for Saturday night, June 18.
East Carolina Motor Speedway in Robersonville, NC has become one of the premier facilities in eastern North Carolina and will complete the 2016 PASS South Super Late Model with an event there on Saturday night, July 30. While the tricky 3/8 mile, D-shaped speedway will be hosting PASS for the first time in 2016, it will not be the first time Super Late Models have raced there. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, East Carolina was well known for featuring what was then known as the Late Model Sportsman division. The PASS South Super Late Models continue to be very popular with area fans and thanks to the Perry family, PASS will return to eastern North Carolina for their only visit in 2016.
The 2016 PASS South Super Late Model season will begin on the weekend of February 5-6 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway with the return of the Winter Meltdown, which will also feature the Limited Late Models and Trucks divisions in action. The final race of 2016 will be the 14th Annual North-South Shootout at Concord Speedway on November 4-5, featuring PASS along with the Tour-type Modifieds and additional support divisions.
With the completion of next year’s PASS South Super Late Model schedule, look for the entire 2016 PASS North Super Late Model schedule to be released in the coming days. For more information please go to ProAllStarsSeries.com.
