Tour’s Rule Package Allows Mixture of Local Racers and Regional Stars

NAPLES, ME (July 9, 2007) – When a short track racing tour comes to a track and can do battle with the top guns who race weekly at that facility, it is a very good thing for the fans – and that is exactly what will be in store on Saturday, July 14th at Thompson International Speedway.

The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North tour will be featured as part of Thompson’s “Full Fendered Frenzy” program.  The race will include a 75-lap PASS North feature, along with a NASCAR Busch East Series event and the track’s regular weekly divisions.  Well, all of the divisions bar one.

Thompson’s Pro Stock teams are welcome to enter the PASS North event – and five competitors have already fielded their entries for the race – Norm Wrenn, Fred Astle, Dennis Maxfield, Michael Rivard and Lesile Rose, Jr. are all set to take on the tourers.

Astle and Wrenn both came away from last year’s PASS North race at Thompson with top 10 finishes – so they are hoping to back that up again this time around.

PASS President Tom Mayberry is happy to see that local racers be able to step up and race with the tour regulars.

“I love it when the local guys take on the PASS guys,” said Mayberry.  “That always makes for a good show.  Guys like Fred Astle and Norm Wrenn are always capable of running with the tour regulars.  Our rules package allows everyone to come and race equally, so this should be a good show.  We’ve had a long association with Thompson and Don Hoenig and his staff are big supporters of the tour.  We’re really looking forward to Full fendered Frenzy.”

Full Fendered Frenzy will take place on Saturday, July 14th at Thompson International Speedway (CT).  Grandstands will open will open at 12:30pm. Race teams will practice until 4pm, qualifying is scheduled for 4:15pm followed by feature event racing.

The PASS 75-lap main is scheduled to go green at about 7:30pm with the Busch East 100-lap, televised feature, slated for an 8:30pm start.

Tickets for this very special event may be obtained by calling the Thompson International Speedway track office at 860-923-2280.

The 2007 PASS Super Late Model schedules will be highlighted by two major fall events.  The PASS 400 weekend at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) is set for September 23rd-24th and the Second Annual Mason-Dixon Meltdown is scheduled for Concord Motorsport Park on November 16th-17th.
