Naples, ME – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials today released details, entry forms, and the complete weekend schedule for the PASS National Championship season finale at Lanier Raceplex on November 15-16. The Lanier National 200 for the PASS Super Late Models will be 200 laps, paying $6,000 to win and $1,000 to start. The starting grid will be set by heat races in which their lineups will be determined by using last practice speeds. Finally, the popular Legends car and Bandoleros will complete the weekend of competition at Lanier Raceplex, featuring three divisions of Legend car racing; Pro, Semi-Pro, and the Young Lions.
“We’ve been working on this event at Lanier for quite a while and we are glad to be able to get this information out well in advance of the Lanier National 200,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “We have listened to our fans and racers and we believe the addition of heat races will provide even more action to this great weekend of racing. And, the Legends cars and Bandoleros were always popular at Lanier and, based on what we’re hearing, there should be a lot of support for their return in November.”
Now in its 12th season, Super Late Model racing’s only true national championship will bring PASS drivers together from all over North America to compete this Fall at Lanier Raceplex. In addition to the grandstands being open, Lanier’s famed trackside parking will be available to the fans for this event. The track was repaved and all infield buildings were torn down at Lanier Raceplex when the facility was transformed to host drifting events and Go-Kart racing for the public. All race cars will be pitted outside the track so fans will be able to enjoy an unobstructed view of the action from any vantage point at the speedway.
When PASS began sanctioning Super Late Model races in the south, Lanier was one of the first tracks to come on board to host an event. Georgia native Jason Hogan won the first PASS race there in 2006, while Maine’s Corey Williams took the checkered flag the final time PASS held a race at Lanier in 2007.
Numerous drivers cut their teeth racing Legends cars and Bandoleros at Lanier Raceplex, including Joey Logano, David Ragan, Daniel Hemric and more. With the concentration of Legends cars around the Atlanta area, the Carolinas, and much of the Eastern Seaboard, race officials believe splitting the cars in to Pro, Semi-Pro, and Young Lions will allow for even more action around the 3/8-mile speedway. There will be a payout throughout the field in each division with $500 to win for the Pro division, $400 to win for the Semi-Pros, and $300 to win for the Young Lions.
After sitting dormant for nearly a decade, the Lanier Raceplex will roar to life on Friday, November 15, with practice for PASS Super Late Models and Legends cars from 1 PM to 5 PM. On Saturday, November 16, pit gates will open at 8 AM, followed by practice at 10 AM, heat races for PASS Super Late Models, Legends, and Bandoleros at 12:30 PM, followed by the Lanier National 200 and remaining features. Sunday, November 17 will be reserved as a rain date if needed.
