Naples ME (6/20) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North super late models will once again make their way across the Canadian border for their first ever stop at Autodrome Chaudiere in Lavallee Jonction Quebec this Saturday, June 25. The PASS Habitations Dany Lagace 150 is the first Quebec visit for the series since 2004.
Autodrome Chaudiere has 18 degrees of banking in the top groove, more than any other speedway in Quebec. They call the place a “Mini Bristol” and 150 green flag laps around this high speed soup bowl is guaranteed to satisfy the most knowledgeable Canadian race fan.
There’s several local hot shoes ready to challenge the PASS touring regulars. Alexander Gingras has made all three PASS North events that have been contested to date, leading at New Brunswick Canada’s Speedway 660 and scoring a season best sixth at the Beech Ridge opener. Gingras currently sits seventh in the PASS North super late model point standings.Local racers Jean-Francois Dery and Martin Latulippe have both filed early entries for the series’ first trip to their home territory.
They’ll have a host of American invaders to contend with, including point leader Ben Rowe, defending series champion Johnny Clark, Maritime star Lonnie Sommerville, Travis Benjamin, Scott Chubbuck and 2010 PASS Rookie of the Year Joey Doiron. Richie Dearborn, Mike Rowe, 2011 Rookie of the Year contenders Kyle DeSouza and Matt Matheson, John Dabrowski, Gary Smith and Kirk Thibeau are all ready to make the trip and you can bet that a new track record for full fender race cars will be set when the super stars in the super cars tackle the high banked quarter mile
The racing rumor mill has a number of speed merchants from both sides of the border planning to enter on race day, so the field for the PASS Habitations Dany Legace 150 should be the strongest super late model gathering that Quebec has seen in many years..
Sport Compacts, Kamakazis and Limiteds complete the four division card. Race day is Saturday June 25th, and the grandstand gates swing open at noon. Home track divisions get their night started at 5:55 PM and the first PASS qualifying race is set to roll off at 6:45 PM. The PASS Habitaions Dany Lagace 150 is scheduled to get the green at 9:00 PM.
