CHARLOTTE, NC (January 16) – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials, along with representatives of Short Track Management, are pleased to announce the return of the PASS South Super Late Model and PASS Pro Late Model divisions to Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC in 2015. The 4th Running of the Labor Day Classic at Ace Speedway will take place on Labor Day afternoon, Monday, September 7, 2015. In addition to PASS, the Madhouse Modifieds, which are featured at the legendary Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC, will compete in Twin 25 lap features under Stadium rules and on Stadium tires. The USAC Eastern Midgets will complete the entertaining Labor Day afternoon festivities of racing at Ace Speedway.
“We’re really glad to be returning to Ace Speedway in 2015 for this exciting card of racing on Labor Day,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “Ace always provides great fender-to-fender action and has some of the best fans in short track racing. We’re really glad to partner with Bill [Catania] and all the folks at Short Track Management as they begin their new venture at Ace Speedway.”
Short Track Management CEO Bill Catania recently acquired the lease to promote events at Ace Speedway in 2015 and has been a long-time competitor in the PASS South Super Late Model division. Catania finished 10th in PASS South Super Late Model points in 2012 and is excited to have PASS featured as the biggest event of the season at Ace Speedway.
“There is arguably no better door-to-door, fender rubbing racing than the Pro All Stars Series,” says Catania. “The size and configuration at Ace sets the stage for a true bullring showdown. As a PASS competitor I won’t miss this race for anything and as a fan I would put it at the top of my list. I have tremendous respect for Tom Mayberry – he has arguably built the most action packed product in short track racing and I’m glad that the path to the 2015 PASS South Super Late Model championship will run through Ace Speedway.”
The Labor Day Classic returns to the PASS South schedule for the first time since 2012 after having rotated from North Wilkesboro Speedway to Ace Speedway, and finally to Caraway Speedway. However, this will be the first time the Classic has actually been held on Labor Day. This will be the fifth time PASS has competed at Ace Speedway, with Andy Loden, Ryan Blaney, Clay Rogers, and most recently, Tyler Church all going to victory lane there in the past.
