Officials from the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced Wednesday an aggressive 21-race schedule for the 2021 season. Several marquee events dot the schedule including the inaugural Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a pair of events at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park and the anchor of the PASS schedule, the 48th Annual Oxford 250. After a tumultuous 2020 season that saw several pivot to the schedule due to state mandated restrictions, PASS President Tom Mayberry is looking forward to making 2021 one of the best racing seasons yet.
“We are looking forward to making up for some lost time that we experienced last year as we enter the new season,” Mayberry said, “We felt it was really important to rebound in a strong way and we think we have an aggressive schedule that will provide many opportunities for some top notch competition.”
The season kicks off with the 15th and 16th Annual Easter Bunny 150s April 2-3. The 2020 Easter Bunny 150 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Both races will pay $5,000 to win and will be part of the reimagined 2021 PASS National Championship Series.
PASS then travels back up the East coast and makes the first of two stops at Thompson Speedway as a part of the 46th Annual Ice Breaker weekend April 10 before shooting up the Loudon for the inaugural Northeast Classic at the Magic Mile on April 16-17. April concludes with a visit to hub track: Oxford Plains Speedway.
May and June will see some new additions to the schedule. A May 16 return to Lee USA Speedway for the first time since 2016 precedes a May 23 visit to White Mountain Motorsports Park and a June 6 visit to Oxford before PASS makes its Super Late Model debut at Hudson Speedway on June 20.
The Fourth of July will be celebrated with a first-ever visit to Monadnock Speedway before three straight weeks of racing at Oxford on the 11th, WMMP on the 17th, and the Concrete Palace of Seekonk Speedway for a special $10000 to win race on Wednesday the 28th. The month of August is largely open as teams prepare for the 48th Annual Oxford 250 on the weekend of the 28th and 29th, as well as an Oxford 250 warmup on the 15th.
After the biggest weekend of the year, the stretch run begins at WMMP on September 18, followed by Seekonk on October 25. October kicks off with a trip to Thunder Road in Vermont on the 1st, a return trip to the World Series of Auto Racing in Thompson on the 9th, Oxford on the 16th, and the points finale at Seekonk on the 23rd. Mayberry also left open the possibility of additional races stating.
There will be two 100 lap non-point races at OPS, a 250 qualifier in July and a TBA. There will also be a non-point ‘Run What you Brung’ race at OPS in August, making as many as 24 events.
With the Marquee events as the cornerstone, some new and returning venues, and a few twists yet to be announced, 2021 promises to be one of the best seasons in many years.
