While the days remaining in 2019 are dwindling down to their final few, the Super Late Model teams of the Northeast are already putting their plans together for next season following the announcement of the 2020 Pro All Stars Series North schedule. The 14-race schedule will once again take PASS teams from one end of New England to the other, with traditional stops and even a new race track dotting the calendar.
Returning for 2020, but moving to the leadoff spot on the schedule is the largest oval of them all and the epicenter of motorsports in New England: New Hampshire Motor Speedway. After a successful return to the ‘Magic Mile’ in June 2019, the PASS Super Late Models will star in the newly christened Northeast Classic on April 17–18 alongside the Tour-type Modifieds and the American-Canadian Tour Late Models.
The second of four shows in which the PASS Super Late Models and ACT Late Models will co-headline is scheduled for the following weekend, Sunday, April 26 during Opening Day at Oxford Plains Speedway. It is also the first of four confirmed dates at PASS’ home track in 2020, with a special Friday night show slated for July 3 being the second.
All the attention of PASS will be on Oxford Plains in the month of August, with the ‘Prelude to the 250’ on Sunday, August 9, followed by the big weekend itself, the 49th Oxford 250 August 28–30.
On the flip side, Super Late Model fans all across the region are marking down their calendars for a long-awaited edition to the PASS schedule. One of New England’s longest running short tracks, Hudson Speedway in southeast New Hampshire will welcome the PASS stars on Sunday, May 3.
Southern New Hampshire fans will also be treated to PASS Super Late Model action at one of the traditional stops on the schedule, Star Speedway in Epping for the third combined show with ACT on Saturday, June 27. The northern half of the Granite State will also get a great share of PASS racing with a trio of visits to White Mountain Motorsports Park on Sunday, May 17, Saturday, July 18 and Saturday, September 19.
Northern Maine will welcome the PASS teams with their annual visit to Speedway 95 near Bangor on Sunday, June 14. Vermont sees the Super Late Models leading off its biggest racing weekend of the year on October 2, with a Friday night show on Milk Bowl weekend at Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl.
For the first time in a number of years, Massachusetts will see the Pro All Stars Series making two stops at Seekonk Speedway. The first being a new Wednesday night show, the Bay State Summer Classic on July 29. Finally, the 2020 PASS North championship will once again be decided at Seekonk on Saturday, October 24, with PASS once again joining forces with the Tri-Track Open Modified Series.
The possibility does remain for the addition of events to the PASS North schedule through January.
There will also be additional details in the coming days for the designated races of the 2020 PASS National Championship, with the traditional Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina already announced for Saturday, April 11. Stay with Speed51 for more.
