CHARLOTTE, NC (May 7, 2008)     Entering this weekend’s Inaugural MOM 150 at the Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model drivers hope to score the win at one of America’s finest short tracks.  At the same, fans will also be able to get something back from PASS thanks to several promotional opportunities aimed at reducing tickets prices.

Motor Mile Speedway fans are used to seeing great weekly racing at a low price.  With this weekend being all about moms, fans can stop by Shelor Motor Mile dealerships and a variety of other supporting locations to pick up $5 dollar off coupons, good for a discount on any adult ticket at Saturday’s races.  Fans can also find downloadable versions of the $5 off coupon at


 “Al (Shelor), Randy (Merriman), and the entire staff at Motor Mile have been great in helping us promote this event,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry.  “We’ve got a great group of fans that follow our events, but these coupons are a way to get our fans and the Motor Mile fans out to see our great races.  It’s also a way for us to give back to our mothers.  The great thing about these coupons is that any adult can use them, not just mom.”


 In addition to the $5 off discount coupons, PASS and Motor Mile Speedway officials also want to give something back to the future leaders of our country.  Motor Mile Speedway is just minutes away from Virginia Tech University in nearby Blacksburg, VA, and in honor of commencement ceremonies there Saturday afternoon, any Virginia Tech student, not just graduates, that show their student ID will get $5 off any adult ticket.


“In trying to give back to the community, we know it can get tough for these kids trying to pay their way through college, so by showing their student ID, hopefully they can save a few bucks and see some great racing too,” said Mayberry.  “It’s our way of honoring the Class of 2008.”


With moms, dads, students, and race fans watching, the third race of the 2008 PASS South Super Late Model schedule looks to be up for grabs.  This will be the first time PASS has visited Motor Mile Speedway so teams will have an empty notebook heading to this weekend’s activities.  Corey Williams and Perry Brown look for their second wins of the season, but a great field of drivers is expected to be on hand looking to join the winner’s club.  Virginia’s Tim Pinion, Ben Rowe, Bubba Pollard, Mitch Cobb, Alex Haase, Zach Stroupe, and many, many more are expected for the aptly named MOM 150.  You know these drivers would love to be able to give mom a trophy come Mother’s Day!



 Everything gets started early with an all day practice scheduled for Friday.  Gates on Friday open at 1 PM, with rotating practice from 3 PM to 7 PM for the PASS South Super Late Models, PASS Rolling Thunder Modifieds, and Limited Sportsmen.  On Saturday, gates open at 10 AM, rotating practice starts at 1 PM, qualifying at 4:30 PM, racing at 6:30 PM, and the MOM 150 will roll off at approximately 8:30 PM.  The Motor Mile Speedway is located 2 miles south of Radford, VA on Route 11.
