January 7, 2010 – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce that the Pro All Stars Series will promote and sanction a 300 lap super late model race at Historic North Wilkesboro (NC) Speedway on April 7.8 and 9, 2011.
The winner of this unprecedented showdown for asphalt short trackers is guaranteed a minimum of $75,000.00. The event is tentatively set as a PASS South points race.
“I’m pleased that the partners at North Wilkesboro Speedway have agreed to present this historic short track event, “said Mayberry. “ We are announcing the race prior to the start of our 2010 PASS North and South schedules because we are building some additional bonuses into the purse for PASS competitors, including guaranteed starting positions for the top 15 in our final 2010 North and South point standings and an additional $25,000.00 winners bonus for the teams that choose to run all of our 2010 point races in either series, plus four of the PASS national events. That’s a $100,000.00 pay day for the race winner if they are a PASS regular, and a 20 percent bonus across the board for every starting position.. We also have an intermediate bonus plan that will see the winners share grow from $75,000.00 to $82,500.00 if he or she competes in any combination of ten PASS North or South events in 2010, plus a ten percent bonus from the base purse for every starting position. A PASS license is required to qualify for the bonus plans, but the base purse of over $153,000.00 will be enough to attract the cream of the crop from all over the USA and Canada to challenge our regulars.”
Thirty two cars will qualify for the 300 lap feature through time trials and qualifying races. Guaranteed starters and provisionals will be added to the field as needed. PASS anticipates a starting field of 40-plus for what’s bound to be the marquee super late model event of 2011.
“I see the April 2011 PASS race at North Wilkesboro as an opportunity to showcase super late model racers at one of the country’s historic short tracks The incentives I’ve developed are a means to encourage teams to race with PASS in 2010 as well, ” continued Mayberry. “I feel that it’s a great way to say thank you to the short track racers that are the backbone of our sport.”
