Naples, ME – A season of “firsts” will continue on Independence Day weekend when the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models will make their debut at the 1-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in Loudon. In addition to PASS, North America’s top touring Super Late Models will be joined by the Sportsman cars and North East Mini Stock Tour (NEMST) on Sunday, July 5 at NHMS.
Entries from across the Eastern Seaboard continue to make their way into the PASS offices following a very successful test earlier this month that saw the cars participating set blazing speeds and even draft at times on the long straightaways. 3-Time PASS National Champion, Ben Rowe, and 6-Time PASS AIM Recycling Super Late Model Champion, Johnny Clark, headline an impressive group of entrants thus far. Current PASS North points leader and 3-Time AIM Recycling Oxford 250 winner, Mike Rowe, will be joined by former PASS North champions, Cassius Clark and DJ Shaw in attempting to make the field for the 60 lap shootout. Many time Loudon winner Ted Christopher returns to PASS as a teammate to Scott Mulkern as they both seek a win at NHMS.
PASS South Super Late Model championship contender Tate Fogleman will make his return to New England and will be joined by Kyle Busch Motorsports teammates Christopher Bell and Kaz Grala in making the trek North. New Hampshire native Bryan Kruczek will be hoping for another win in his homestate, along with fellow Granite State driver Mark Lundblad, Jr. The state of Maine will be well represented by Reid Lanpher, David Oliver, Richie Dearborn, Glen Luce, Bill Penfold, Dave Farrington, Jr., Mike Hopkins, and veteran Kelly Moore. Massachusetts’ Derek Ramstrom is hoping his big track experience will pay off and will be joined by Billy Brady and Kyle Desouza in striving for a win. Quebec’s Eric St. Gelais and Raphael Lessard also will be looking for a win as they try to take the trophy north of the border.
