Naples ME (August 12, 2008)  There’s less than a week until the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Toyota Tundra 250 at Wiscasset Raceway, and  throughout the east  super late model race teams are busy preparing for a shot at the $30,000.00  winner’s share of the purse.

The PASS North regulars that raced in last Saturday’s Atlantic CAT 250  at Scotia Speedworld x will barely have time to catch their breath before heading for the coastal oval for another 250 green flag laps of short track thunder. Race winner Travis Benjamin will be looking to take down two 250 lappers in a row, but as always there’ll be s plenty of competition in the east coasts’ fastest full fendered racing series.
Johnny Clark and D.J. Shaw are guaranteed spots in the 250 by virtue of their Wiscasset wins in the Ray Haskell Ford 125 and  the Steel’s Real Rod and Customs 125, respectively They both have to be near the top of the favorites list, along with multi time Wiscasset Champion Scott Chubbuck, Ben Rowe and Mike Rowe, Adam Bates, Kelly Moore, Derek Ramstrom – the list goes on and on. Corey Williams will make the Toyota Tundra 250 a homecoming of sorts. The PASS South point leader still calls Boothbay Maine home, despite several years based in greater Charlotte North Carolina. He earned a guaranteed start in the race by virtue of his win in the Easter Bunny 150 PASS South season opener at Hickory (NC) Motor Speedway in March.
Stan Meserve’s another Mainer that will be returning to his home turf this weekend. Meserve knows every crack and ripple in the venerable speedway’s surface, and the Toyota Tundra 250 will be a rare behind-the-wheel appearance for one of the Pine Tree States’ best known driver/car builders.
All of Wiscasset’s weekly racing hot shoes have pre-entered; John Phippen, Randy Turner, Charlie Colby and a host of others will be challenging the touring pros. Past PASS regulars Larry Gelinas and Mike Parks have both filed entries, and Maine racing legend Albert Hammond is on the list as well. “Sud’n Sam” Sessions will be there too, looking for the same magic combination that earned the past PASS Champion a six figure payday at Wiscasset in  2004.
The Toyota Tundra 250 weekend kicks off on Saturday August 16th with 50 laps for the late models, legends, and a full card of weekly racing topped off by fireworks and Super Late Model practice for the Toyota Tundra 250.
Sunday August 17th the pit gate swings open at 7:00 AM, practice takes to the track at 9:00 AM and the first green flag waves at 2:00 PM. Twin features for the PASS Pluffybilt Sportsman Series, a 40 lap go for the PASS Mods, a $500.00 to win Strictly Street special and all the super late model qualifying races guarantee a full throttle afternoon of racing.  The 36 car field for the Toyota Tundra 250 is tentatively scheduled to roll off at 6:00 PM.
Reserved seating is still available by calling (207) 882-4271.  The complete pre entry list and the full weekend schedule is posted at  .
