Naples, ME – As the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) AIM Recycling Super Late Models Pres. By Kenny U-Pull prepare for their debut this weekend at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a diverse group of drivers will be front and center in Sunday afternoon’s AIM 60.
While it will be the first time PASS has ever competed at the “Magic Mile”, several drivers hope to be in the starting lineup that have raced at New Hampshire in the past. No one in Sunday’s field will have more experience at Loudon than home state favorite Eddie MacDonald and Plainville, CT’s Teddy Christopher. MacDonald has raced everything at New Hampshire Motor Speedway from ACT Late Models to Cup cars and has been a multiple-time winner in the K&N Pro Series East. Christopher is the leading Modified tour winner at New Hampshire with five wins and will be looking for his first PASS win since Stafford in 2012.
“The PASS Super Late Models are really getting around that place,” said Christopher after testing at New Hampshire in May. “I ran a 29.2 second lap with the PASS car which is comparable to a Modified lap time there.”
Boca Raton, FL’s Dalton Sargeant will be making his first trip to New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend for the AIM 60 as he returns to the seat of the RW Motorsports entry along with rookie teammate Vinnie Miller. Sargeant caught a lot of attention late last year with several strong runs in the Super Late Model, including a fourth place finish in the season ending Mason-Dixon Meltdown at Southern National Motorsports Park.
“I’m really looking forward to going to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the first time this weekend in the #5s Galt/Wauters Motorsports Toyota,” say Sargeant. “I’ve heard a lot about NHMS from Richie Wauters. It’s really fast, with long straightaways and flat corners that you need to be able to roll the most speed through the corner. It sounds really challenging, but I’m glad I have veteran leadership with Wauters and Bobby Gill on our side. It should be a really great race with some really good competition.”
PASS National Championship contender Tate Fogleman will lead a group of drivers from the Southeast up to Loudon for the AIM 60, the third race of the 2015 PASS National Championship Series. Fogleman will be joined by Georgia’s Spencer Davis, Kyle Busch Motorsports teammates Kaz Grala and Christopher Bell, and Fathead Racing’s David Garbo, Jr. in making the trip up to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“The Bull City team and I are really excited about this weekend’s race at Loudon,” says Fogleman, who will enter Sunday’s race second in PASS National Championship points. “I’ve never raced on a track that big so that will be a new challenge for us. I’m also really looking forward to drafting and how that will impact these PASS Super Late Models.”
A great field of PASS AIM Recycling Super Late Model Presented By Kenny U-Pull is expected this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the history making AIM 60. Defending series champion DJ Shaw will be joined by Mike and Ben Rowe, Derek Ramstrom, and Kelly Moore, all of whom have raced at Loudon in the past. Former PASS AIM Recycling Super Late Model champions Cassius Clark and Johnny Clark will lead the Maine contingent along with Scott Mulkern, Reid Lanpher, David Oliver, Richie Dearborn, Glen Luce, Bill Penfold, Dave Farrington, Jr., Mike Hopkins, Billy Brady, Joey Doiron, Dillon Moltz, and Trevor Sanborn. In addition to Shaw and MacDonald, a strong group of drivers from New Hampshire will attempt to make Sunday’s race including Bryan Kruczek and Mark Lundblad, Jr. PASS regulars Raphael Lessard and Eric St. Gelais are planning to come down from Quebec, while Kyle Desouza will make the trip from Massachusetts.
