CHARLOTTE, NC (September 25) –   Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry and Hickory Motor Speedway promoter Sherry Clifton agreed Thursday to postpone Saturday night’s PASS South Super Late Model event due to weather concerns and a gas shortage in western North Carolina.  The possibility of rescheduling the Over The Mountain 150 is being looked upon, but a date has yet to be announced.

Weather forecasters have increased the chance of precipitation in the Hickory, N.C. to 60 percent on Saturday because of a low pressure system situated off the coast of North Carolina.  Circumstances have been further complicated in part due to a severe gas shortage in western North Carolina.  North Carolina Governor Mike Easley announced late Wednesday that relief is coming to the area, but it is unclear how much gas can be freed up from the Tennessee and Spartanburg, S.C. terminals because those areas are experiencing gas supply shortages as well.
“We would like to thank Sherry Clifton and everybody involved in their understanding during this tough situation,” said Mayberry.   “But, you need gas to travel and you need gas to race, and with the weather situation factored in, we didn’t feel like it was fair to put our fans and teams in jeopardy.”
PASS South Super Late Model action returns on Saturday, October 18thth for the 2nd Annual Howler 150 at the Greenville-Pickens Speedway.  The Howler will be the final race of the PASS National Series.
