PASS South Announces October 20th Race at Shenandoah
“We’re excited about going to Shenandoah for the first time,” said PASS founder Tom Mayberry.  “It’s a state-of-the-art facility where the Super Late Models should put on a great show.  I’m expecting that it is going to be a really good event for fans and competitors.  We are also really excited because James Madison University is located just around the block from the speedway, so I hope we can put some excitement on for the students as well.”

The Saturday race could prove to be a battle in a racing civil war as well.  In addition to a full contingent of PASS South entries, the race is expected to draw several teams from the PASS North ranks as well.  The track is located in central Virginia, within 30 miles of I-81 and will be fairly accessible for teams from New England to tow down to.


“The PASS North season will be over at that point in October, and those guys are always looking to find more races, so I expect that several Northern teams will head down there.  That should add a little bit of extra flavor to the event.”


The Shenandoah race is the sixth confirmed date for the 2007 PASS South season.  Series officials are putting finishing touches on the remaining events and plan to release the entire schedule within the next few days, which will include details on the second annual Mason-Dixon Meltdown.


“Everyone at PASS has been working hard, and everything is coming together very well,” said Mayberry.  “We’re real close to having everything put together, and we’re a little bit ahead of schedule.  We’re much further ahead of where we were last season.  At this time last year, we still hadn’t had our first rules meeting.  This year, we’ve almost got the entire schedule finished.  That should help teams prepare for the season, and I know that it will really help us promote the series to fans.  The second year for PASS South is going to be a big one.”


Mayberry also indicated that PASS plans to sweeten the pot for teams in both the North and South for the 2007 season with several new contingency programs under negotiation.  Further announcements on those programs will be coming soon.
