Nine Races, Nine Faces in PASS Super Late Model Victory Lane


The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) super late models have completed a third of their 2008 schedule and there’s yet to be a repeat race winner in either the North or South divisions.


In the South Corey Williams, Perry Brown, Zach Stroupe, Trevor Sanborn and Alex Haas have each taken a trip to PASS victory lane. They’re all talented young men that are making a name for themselves in the super late model ranks. Same goes for Heath Hindman, John Stancill, Justin Wakefield, Spencer Wauters and a host of others that have been closing in on a PASS South checker.


PASS North has seen three veterans and a rookie in the winner’s circle. Mike Rowe, Ben Rowe and Johnny Clark represent seven PASS super late model titles between them, along with hundreds of short track wins all over the east coast. But rookie D.J. Shaw got the best of the touring veterans at Wiscasset Raceway recently and young guns Adam Bates and Derek Ramstrom are all knocking on the door to victory lane. Travis Benjamin is oh-so-close to win number one.


 Ramstroms' turn could easily come in the Full Fendered Frenzy 75 at Thompson International Speedway on July 12th, where he currently has a two race win streak in the speedway’s weekly super late model division.


There are plenty of experienced teams that should be expected to earn PASS North wins in 2008, too.  Richie Dearborn, Cassius Clark, Kelly Moore, Scott Chubbuck, John Flemming; they’re all racers that can win anywhere, at anytime.


“The fact that we’ve had nine winners in our first nine events is a testament to the depth of talent that races with us,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry.” I can easily count another twenty five drivers that have the ability and equipment to win in PASS North or South, or take home the first PASS National Championship under the right circumstances. We’re very fortunate that so many of the finest short track racers in the country have chosen to race with PASS.”


As the weather gets warmer, both PASS super late model divisions’ schedules heat up as well. PASS South heads to Greenville-Pickens July 3rd for the Firecracker 125, and July 19th will see an all star field gather at Orange County Speedway for round two of the PASS National Championship series, the $10,000.00 to win Southern Sizzler.


PASS North has a tough schedule in the weeks ahead on speedways ranging from tight quarter miles to fast five eighths, and everything in between. Sprint Cup stars Kyle Busch and Regan Smith will try to add their name to the winner’s list this Saturday night in the All-Stars 200 at All-Star Speedway in Epping NH Then, it’s’ a return trip to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on July 5th followed by Thompson International Speedway on the 12th, Groveton New Hampshire’s’ Riverside Speedway on the 26th and the Atlantic CAT 250 in Halifax Nova Scotia on August 9th.   It’s a grueling schedule with six events in an eight six week span, culminating in the biggest payday of the 2008 season, the August 17th $30,000.00 to win Toyota Tundra 250 at Wiscasset (ME) Raceway.
